Does anyone have any idea when we might expect to see the rules? Sounds like a fascinating game, but I don't have experience with how long prior to release Rio Grande Games typically release such things...

Really hoping the designer might see this, and be able to provide some info.

We are working on the final artwork for the rules now. Now that GenCon is over, I would expect things to move very quickly. As a bit of a teaser, the game uses the 3-dimensional scoring grid from Ars Mysteriorum, so you score for building individual rides taller and/or building a variety of rides across your board.

Aha, that sounds a little like the system I thought/hoped Steam Park might use (but didn't). Thanks for the tease, Alan.

Daaaaaamnnn, I'm checking every single day, just in case there is a stealth upload! Genuinely cannot wait to get hold of a copy - only wish I could preorder it direct for day one delivery.

*SURELY* it's time enough for a sneaky preview (if not the full rules), no? Especially if it is still planned for a supposed Q1 release...

Alan has been quite insistent that this will release soon. As for the rules? He swore us (his local gaming group) to secrecy. With real swear words!

xD

It's rather ridiculous - every day (pretty much) I'm checking Rio Grande's page in case of a stealth upload - you'd think they would really want to advertise the game!

You lucky things, though - have you seen the final version?

Looks fun on the box, but... would like to know SOMETHING about the game.

I can't think of a positive reason for hiding rules.
