I have made a crib sheet that helps a lot, but I bet the game really comes alive when you are not looking up every bloody symbol lol.
I've only played the Stars Wars variants of this, Edge of the Empire and Age of Rebellion. It really only took me a couple of sessions to learn the dice. It's fairly intuitive and I have to say, I like the system. It really seems to balance crunch and role-play without being as meta as FATE. As much as I like FATE, it almost seems to be a game within a game, and to me that gets in the way of roleplaying. I don't want to play the system, I want the system to allow me to play the game. FFG's system allows me to do that. It really opens up the "You succeeded, but" scenarios.
