This Quick Start Guide is meant as an introduction to the game of Robinson Crusoe. You can think of it as a guide to pass along to your friends to read before going to game night. It’ll be great if the game is played with at least one experienced player who knows how to handle all the exceptions and special rules.
This guide is not meant to be comprehensive. Hopefully it can be used as an aid to help new players get into this game. Some of the things I left out include:
- Unfulfilled demand rule
- One unique token on each space rule
- "IF POSSIBLE"
- Cards and effects
- Storm token
- Special wounds
NOTE 1: I intentionally left out rules for Building Shelter on other tiles. I'm not clear on that myself. I play all my games such that I can only Build Shelter on Camp tile. It works. I think it's fine to play either way.
NOTE 2: Friday + Dog. There is rule difference between Polish version and English version. This may be a translation / interpretation issue. As I heard, Polish version is very clear that Dog can be used with Friday. English version says Dog can only be used with a player's pawn. Feel free to play either way. It only affects Solo plays. Either way is fine.
