Default scenarios for multiple new players?

I know that the classic MkIII attack is a good point to start when teaching people, but that only allows for 2 players at a time.

Can anybody recomend a good scneario for multiple new players, like you could expect at a game convention?

Thanks,
Ray

Combine MkIII defending with 2xMkIII attacking for a four player game.

Super CP has two Ogres attacking and two defending.

For three players, do a Mark V scenario with the following changes:
  1. Instead of one Mark V, use two Mark III's for the attackers
  2. Add 2 AU to the Mark V defense

For four players, do the same thing, but split the defense units between two players.

We did this scenario with three a couple of nights ago. One took the two Mark-Vs, another the Mark-IIIs and the other the infantry and armor. It was decent that way but I'd probably split the defending ogres, infantry, and armor between the two defending players the next time because the ogre player doesn't have all that much to do - especially if he treats to Mark-IIIs as sacrificial to cut down the Mark-Vs weapon range and mobility.

Agreed.

This works very well as a 3-player game.
