Hi Pocus,

A very enjoyable read - just one thing I noticed in section 19.6 Winning:

"So the game is much more about painting the map in your color."

Is this supposed to read:

"So the game is about much more than painting the map in your color"?

Both are correct English, but mean quite different things, and knowing your philosophy the second just made more sense to me that way around.

cheers

ah yes. And it has been proofread! Sorry for the typo, that's hard to not have some in a manual of such length.

Add the 'than' then.

And in great parts you can thank Loki who was in charge of the manual and distilled months of beta testing into it.

A few years ago I used to work for a printing company. Some documents were proofread like a dozen times. And when you had the product in the hand, you still found a printing error that jumped you right into the eye on friggin' page one.

In my writer's group, a member finally finished his great book. He edited every page over and over before publishing. Then he found out that he had misspelled his name.
