comment Is the same page tool overkill for brand new players?
So you laid out your choices you were going to play as GM, then confirmed everyone was happy with it, rather than talking every option through with the new players? "This is what I think is best, as long as you're all happy with it?" rather than "How shall we play it?"

@SSD, I've never used it with a group, but having read it, a lot of the questions look to rely on players' tastes, which would informed by experience. Given that these are beginners, it's like asking someone's opinion on whether to check or bet against someone who is usually tight and agressive, who's raised preflop, but checked after the flop and you've got 3 outs, but you're the chip leader, before they've played their first hand of texas hold 'em. You can explain about what it all means to someone new, but is it worth having that conversation rather than just getting started?

@Theik yes, I'm worried about the boredom aspect. Spending hours talking about/reading about playing, rather than playing and learning as we go. Most people have been turned off to something they would otherwise enjoy because of being bored by a garrulous evangelist. I don't want anyone to leave thinking "RPGs, yeah I tried playing D&D once, but we had to talk about it for an hour before we started playing."
