I'm looking at the component list for the PQ-17 Norway expansion and it mentions "2nd Edition PQ-17 Rules booklet". Is this a rewritten rulebook? If so, can we get it NOW? I read the rulebook for PQ-17 in the past but it was so unintelligible for me that I gave up on buying the game. If there was a more accessible rulebook I might actually buy PQ-17 and - who knows - maybe order the expansion.
Latest updated rules are also posted in the Files section here, but the latest updated playbook isn't in the Files section.
This is not a 2nd edition rulebook per se, but I don't think that there are going to be vast changes.
The real problem in understanding the game is how things weave together. The extended example of play (which is really, really comprehensive) makes things pretty clear. Once you've read that, the rulebook is more of a reference and the organization that seems weird at first makes a lot more sense.
