Still no setup-rulesheet PDF on the site though, which is a shame. Even though there's no actual rulebook, I'd like to see the setup sheet.

The rules are in the app, and the app is free :)
I played yesterday expecting nothing special.
I was completely blown away!
This game is AMAZING.

He's talking about the setup sheet which is included in the box.

I picked up the game at my FLGS in New York on Monday, on my way home to an impending snow day. On Tuesday I played two games with my 14-yr old son and his best friend, who has played the videogame and was very excited about a boardgame version. We got crushed both times but the game, and the way the app enables it, is awesome! When I got home from work today, my son was waiting to play another game so we did a two-player version. We made it much closer to winning (on Easy level, admittedly) - two more turns would have done the trick for the final mission but a bad crisis card led to the base being destroyed. Once you start falling behind, this thing can really snowball.

As he headed up to bed tonight, my son said "Dad, can we try XCOM again tomorrow night?". You bet!
