8 Oasis Screen 2006-12-08.pdf
Player Aid / Screen ver. 2006-12-08 - To use as a screen, print on card stock, rotate, print again, cut in half (giving you two screens), then slightly fold each screen between text columns so that they will stand. Each screen has a summary of the rules and can be used to hide your Scoring Markers (which makes it easier to see what you have compared to having to keep the Markers face down and checking them without the other players seeing).
