Got the game today and got a session in with some friends. After constantly looking trough the rulebook to see what actions were available during a turn, what the sequence for defusing a bomb was and what happened during the city phase I can't understand why game publishers do not include a player aid or game sequence flow chart at the end of the rulebook.

Anyone know if there is plans of producing player aids and making them available for print online?

There is a player aid available.
I think it is automatically send to you when you register the game using the small paper leaflet with the code number listed.

If that's the fact then It's great, but inclusion of a player aid in the gamebox, atleast, for our group always makes the initial learning curve easier and waiting for the process of registration and shipping is ofcourse a solution but would rather print it out myself for the gaming sessions during the holidays.

The game is great and we had a blast playing it, I've read that the bomb part have confused some people but I think we played it correctly and did feel that the rule book was clear on how to handle them, but it's the amount of actions available that drags down playing time in the initial stages of learning the game.

But I will register the game on the website and keep it on the shelf untill the player aids arive in Sweden, do not want to turn a new gamer away from the game becouse of a steeper than necessary learning curve.

Thanks for a great game!
Regards.

I have registered the game and what I got was a blank email and found a link to download the dutch rules for the game, maybe I'm missing something.

I delivered the files to WG a while ago, so I presume they are up now?

I'd like to get the player aid but got the Stronghold edition and it has no registration card in the box. How do I get it?

Registered mine before Christmas and didn't even get an email

Certainly no player aids, or any sign of replacement components for the flimsy ones supplied. I am making do with home made stuff but would still like the real deal.
