I know, until now we don't have any rulebook and we don't know how the game plays. The updates until now were very vage about that.

But IF there is a game behind all the cards and its any good, I will back Ortus Regni for sure! The artwork is so great!

I hope they know what they are doing with the planned app. There have been many other projects who couldn't hold up with their plans ...

we have to wait another week for more details.

We'll see

Cheers, J

The rules have just been posted in update 9. If you click on the "tools" button on the top right corner you can download a PDF version.

Yes, but that's the first feeling, I think. I just printed it, and I found a couple of white pages and three or four pages with a diagram only. So, I'm not saying it's a "few lines rulebook", but not even "War and Peace" ^___*

Cheers,

I just finished reading it and… I think I might understand it? I think the book will be good or reference since theres a lot of redundancy (in a good way).

I wish it had something like a quick start guide. You know- something that covers the "high level rules" and leaves out all the caveats that are covered in the 48 page book. There's a lot of times in the rules when it says, "this happens except if this *jargon* is present then…"

This seems like a game that will benefit from a very clear gameplay video.


I really like the idea of each player having the same 90 cards and paring that down to 24. I think the Viking army is pretty interesting and I like the fact that there are several ways to mess with an opponent.

I HOPE that the lack of text on the cards is not an insurmountable hurdle for teaching new players.

I'm in the middle of it right now. I think I will read it a second time.

Yes, I would like also to watch a Gameplay-Video ... Since they already are done with the game, as i understand it, they should have time during the kickstarter to produce such a video.
