Echoing what lonelypath said...
Do you know anyone nearby who plays the game? Because really, it is unlike any other game I've played, and possibly the best way to realise this is by watching it. As he mentionned you use cards, so in attack, I flip a card and you flip a card, and add stats to it to see if I hit you or not. But, I have a hand of cards I can "cheat" with if I dont like my result... But because your opponent doesnt know your cards, it feels a lot like poker, "ooh, I could attack him, but should I? What if he cheats in a 7 or more, I'm screwed. But he used this card back then... " etc.
The game is primarily about resource management more than anything else, and combo'ing certain stuff. I'd advise you have a look over the wyrd store and see anything that leaps out to you, because some of the models are gorgeous, and some are a bit mediocre, depending on what you like.
Also, the game has amazing fluff. AMAZING. I've played crews based on their fluff alone
