Only two months after release. Remind me to post one of those thank-you love letters. :cthulhu:

Awesome! Looking forward to it. Thank you the continued support of what is quickly turning into a gem of a game. :D

And the first person to read it when released will find a typo on page 1! :bonk:

Looks great. *drool*

I noticed, though: no appendix for the event cards? A summary of requirements/effects would be nice (the original board game rules you posted help some, but it'd still be nicer in the manual). :)

Medium?

How will it be disseminated? Will all purchasers of the game receive a copy in the mail for an additional fee? Or, will it be published only on the internet?

What would be great is an ability to get it printed at a local print shop if we so chose (i.e Kinkos here in the US). Issue I've had in the past is that they don't print copyrighted material.

Is there a way around that?

Perhaps a note a la "AGEOD permits copies to be made of this document for personal use" or something?

Manual looks really fine and cool!!!

I noted there are 2 chapters (17&18) "reserved for future use"
:bonk:
What's in your mind ??? :confused:
Can I print now or it's better awaiting just a little for this 2 more chapter ??

To quote PhilThib from above:

So the version available now is not (by far) the final version. My recommendation is to wait before printing :)

FYI, I checked with Kinkos to see what it would take to allow the manual to be printed:

As I wrote before, I'm writing the section of game Events.
Herewith enclosed you can find a preview.
The number of events is really huge. This task is really absorbing me. :cuit:

Is that the right document? There are only about 10 events listed?

Then I guess you are looking for feedback :)

I'd personally prefer a table format for these with them in Event Name order so I can find them quickly. The country(ies) impacted would be one of the columns.

I will ask Martin to build an index, because I must keep this format.
There are indeed three different types of events and each event has too many informations to fit in a table. :(
