I've only played once, but initially, I think the game needs a few "Cheat sheets". A double sided card, the size of a character's card, that has routinely needed information on it, so you don't have to keep going back to the rulebook.

Specific information would be:
Side 1: Turn order, steps, and descriptions of each step.

Side 2: Basic Attack information - The attack statistics of your deck canon, of your deckhands, and of your bosuns.

I'm sure veteran players will memorize this information, but when teaching, it is helpful to not have to continually flip through the rulebook looking for how many dice your cannon roles, or what value you need to hit when a bosun is present.

The back page of the rulebook has exactly this info. May be worth photocopying it to give to multiple players.

As Matt said, the back of the rulebook has a summary of the turn order and some rules. I use the summary and just call out the phase name as a prompt. There are SO MANY phases! We found that calling out the phases like a checklist creates a cadence to the game and keeps it from slogging down.

"Ok, Prepare heroes... ok Fire Deck Gun... ok ouch! Ok, deploy your crew... activate crew... ok deploy heroes... activate heroes... Check the Kraken... Draw cards. My turn."

Thanks for that!

Could you perhaps update:

Phase 1.
Add "Remove all [GOLD Deadman's Token icon], Flip all [BLACK Deadman's token icon] to [GOLD Deadman's Token icon]"

This is a rule I found got skipped a couple of times.

Phase 6.
Add "Perform up to 3 Actions."

This is something mentioned only once in the rulebook and should be highlighted. It looks like it should fit easily in the rest of that line.

Love the game, by the way! My group enjoyed this game WAY more than we expected to!
