Wow. I know I'm getting older, but if you guys make the rulebook font any smaller, I'm going to need a jeweler's loupe!

Looks like I'll need to assemble one of my trusty game aids so I can get this to the table!

I just received my copy (along with Bios: Genesis) and I was wondering if I was going blind. I didn't know there were fonts that small. I'm thinking I need a PDF version of the rules and card texts so that I can view them on my 27" monitor.

I'll be looking forward to any play aids you might make available and with much appreciation.

Oh, come on guys. You both have other games by Phil, so you know you need the living rules anyway.

I know there will be living rules, which annoy me but that's a story for another thread, but I like color and graphics.

The first thing I did after spending 5 seconds trying to read the rule book, was to scan it as a PDF on my computer. I then printed them out on old-eye-friendly 8.5"x11" paper. Much better.

(I've started scanning rules when possible. I lost my Pax Porifina rules long ago; they were so tiny, they just disappeared, darn it.)

I think I realize the reason for the small font. Otherwise, the book would be 150 pages!

Just finished going through it and my game aid has been posted and should be in the file section soon.

So it would be like the books you'd get with the computer games Europa Universalis 2, Alpha Centauri, and Civilization 2? I'd pay and extra $5 or $10 for that... and I would have paid an extra $10 for Khyber Knives to come with a Pax Pamir box that fits the expansion in it (grrrrr).

Still, I usually just get the living rules and pull out the rule books for diagrams. (I'd also like matte paper over glossy as the shine, small text, and aging eyes of mine don't really like how hard the tiny books are to read.)

That's what the Pax Porfiriana Collector's Edition box is for

Disclaimer: I have not attempted to fit everything in there yet.
