No Substitute for Experience

Newcomers can compete quite well in the reading games where knowledge of the subject matter is primary. However, in thecube games, inexperienced players have a tough time defeating veterans.

Prepare rookies as best you can for their first competition but be prepared to encourage them should they lose because of inexperience.
