    Once we are in apps, we are going to scroll through until we find the Google play icon

  7. 7
    Tap on it one time
    .
    It's going to start the "Boom Beach" installation window. As you can see I have previously installed it. I did not think you would want to sit through an installment, but I have not actually gone in and played it yet. So you go tap "Install" and wait for your installation to complete.

  8. 8
    Once that is done, we are going to tap on "Open"

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    OK here we are
    .
    We have "Boom Beach " set up and ready to go. It would like to be signed in with my Google account.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    That's fine if you have a Google account, make sure you let it sign in
    .
    It would like to know my basic profile and information. That is fine.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    It would like to make my game information visible
    .
    That is not fine. So we go edit this, we are going to get rid of "Public" and we are going to tap done.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    So this app will not send information about you
    .
    Done. Now make your game activity available via Google, visible to "Only to You"
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    So if you're just like me and you don't like, for instance, your Mom to know that maybe you've spent 30 minutes playing a game, you will find that when you tap the little pencil here
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    To edit it, it's not going to say "Only you" it's going to look blank
    .
    And you are going to tap done.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    Now it says, "Only you"
    .
    Once you have confirmed that it says "Only you" Then you can tap "Sign in".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    Now it is asking if I would like to share my profile information and view and manage your game activity
    .
    I am okay with that.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    So we have tapped that and we are going to hold a minute for it to sign us in
    .
    We are signed in Fantastic.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    Now we are going to zoom into a little corner of an island and there is a person who actually looks like the former late night host Conan O'Brien
    .
    And he is about to say that we have made a successful landing. Thanks, Chief.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    This is going to become our base of operations against the black guard threat
    .
    Apparently there are some people called the Black Guard and they are threatening us. So we can't let the enemy surprise us.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    That probably means that we have to build some stuff
    .
    Yes, let's build a sniper tower. We need eyes on the horizon at all times. So The purpose of this game is to defend yourself against the marauding enemy but also defending yourself against players and conquering the player and enemies. Since you things automatically rebuild themselves after you have been attacked, it's not like you really lose any real progress, but you do lose collected resources and that sort of thing.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    So let's tap our little hammer
    .
    We are going to build ourselves a sniper tower.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    Let's put it right there, by pressing the check box
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    OK our sniper tower has now been built
    .
    And the enemy ships are approaching. So this is how the enemies attack. Here are our bad guys, and it is this Lieutenant Hammerman.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25
    So he is about let us know, that he is going to crush us
    .
    So we may get crushed. Let's see. Tap "Let's watch the fight"
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  26. 26
    Let's watch and see what happens
    .
    Let's go! The bad guys are shooting bombs at us and from where I sit, it appears that we may get crushed. Let's see what happens. There are 4 little guys running up.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  27. 27
    And mister sniper is actually doing a pretty good job of defending us against them
    .
    That is very impressive.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  28. 28
    So he says
    .
    "He is going to come back and it won't be a fair fight." Well that means that maybe we are going to lose. You can read these as your playing, but I am tapping throw them because I do not want to sit here while I read everything. I want to show you how to play the game.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  29. 29
    So this is the troop transport
    .
    It allows you to add soldiers to it by pressing the plus button, and you can add your 5 soldiers to it.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  30. 30
    Now it is going to make these soldiers, all ready to go
    .
    Now we need to get another landing craft for this. So we are going to go back over her to our little hammer.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  31. 31
    We are going to chose landing craft
    .
    Now you can scroll through here and build different things. This is economy, defense, and support. At the moment it is not going to let you click on them because we are in Tutorial. So I have taped on landing craft.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  32. 32
    I'm going to build us another landing craft
    .
    Now we are going to load this landing craft up with even more people. So tap your little plus icon. Tao your little soldier boys.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  35. 35
    Here is an enemy base
    .
    So lets tap that enemy base and see what happens.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  36. 36
    Here they are
    .
    Now we can select artillery to attack where we are going to go. So this is our artillery button.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  37. 37
    So now you have to tap on what we would like to shoot with our artillery
    .
    I am going to go ahead and shoot this weapon here.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  38. 38
    Hopefully it's not going to blow me up to much
    .
    Lets see if I have some more. So, now we select our troops.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  39. 39
    And usually you want to try to deploy your troops separately so that they can approach from 2 different points of attack
    .
    The reason for that is a weapon, especially one like this spray weapon like a machine gun, will very quickly take out your troops.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  40. 40
    Now your troops are going to go blow up the base
    .
    Once they blow up the base, everything else on the map will blow up. If you want to help them, you can take a shot at the base as well. from your big ship.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  41. 41

    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    .
    This takes us back to our base, and we have now,this island on our little map and we can go back to our home base as well.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  44. 44
    That takes us home
    .
    Now that we are home. We need to build some.Once you are here, the key part is to construct and build and grow your little base. If you don't do that, then you will very easily be overtaken by the enemies. So the first thing you are going to want to do is tap on your little building.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  45. 45
    You're going to need storage for your gold
    .
    If you have defense, you build defense, but you can't build anymore defense right now. and you need some come of support thing, like a radar that will let you see more information more places and more detail.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  46. 46
    So we are going to start out with our gold storage
    .
    We will move this back here so that it is less likely that it will be attacked by everyone.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  47. 47
    That is going to allow us to store more gold
    .
    The more gold we can store, the more things we can build. Now as a general rule when you're playing this game, you can only build one thing at a time so lets see how, I am going to try to build something else. Let go to support and try to build that radar. Here it tells us that all your builders are busy you can only build one building at a time. But for one of these little gems, we can complete it. But lets go ahead and skip that.
