I could really do with this too - perhaps as a basis for some card-sized player aids, one per colony type.

The different effects of the embassies are both easily misunderstood (a friend achieved a mighty score by misusing the Trader again and again, based on a misreading of the rules) and also easily forgotten during the game. I can barely see that I have a level two Lord embassy without a magnifying glass; trying to peer across the table at the colony overviews is even more of a nuisance.

Just out of curiosity, how was your friend misusing the Trader Colony?

Not a clue - I wasn't playing in that game. Perhaps forgetting that they had to visit a Market to do so?

I misused the Trader Colony the first time it was in play. The arrow iconography suggests that you can make multiple trades in a single action (e.g. freely exchange all your resources for other ones of equivalent value).

ex: convert 6 wood into 4 food + 2 clay
ex: convert 10 wood into 3 planks + 2 bricks

But I'm pretty sure the actual rule is that you get a single transaction at the market.

ex: convert 10 wood into 10 clay
ex: convert 10 food into 5 bricks

You'd also need to have the Alchemist Colony to do one of my earlier examples

Yes! That's what they were getting wrong too.

The rules, introductory game and appendix are all available from the Lookout homepage, as well as from the file section here on bgg.

Thanks, those are good, too, but it's the colony overviews I'd like to see :-)

There is an unboxing video up on BGG now where you can get a quick glance at them as they are flipped thru.

It should be clear enough to pause the video and take a pretty good look at whats on them, in order to make homemade reference cards with a more condensed summary.
