I found the .doc file with rules and playtest notes. It's also possible to get the final rules version maybe in pdf format?

Just pick "print" and you actually get a PDF (in Google Docs).

Phil, with your permission could I post the "combined Panda" PDF to the files section for the game?

It is not as current as the living rules, but it is a PDF of the rule book that is included with the game.

Hi Phil, just looking at the living rules and trying to get some clarity on how to handle the various scenarios in which a Husband (mature or immature) is removed from a Daughter. I am hoping you can help.


1. Successful Courtship

“Only one Husband (mature or immature) is allowed per daughter. A successful Suitor returns the former Husband (if any) to the unassigned tribesmen of whichever player owns the tableau, and places the Suitor in the husband box as the new Husband...”

Does this mean the husband goes into the Daughter tribe’s unassigned tribesmen i.e., the player who “owns the tableau of the daughter ”, or does it mean the husband returns to his home tableau i.e., the player who “owns the husband’s tableau”?

When I first read this, I’d understood it to mean the daughter’s tableau; however, that doesn’t seem internally consistent with other references in the rules. In all other places, it seems that displaced husbands return to their home (matching colour) tribe’s unassigned tribesmen. Is this correct?

2. Promiscuous Courting

“If your successful Suitor in a foreign tableau is promiscuous, he cannot become a Husband and instead you add a Wanderluster of your color from the deadpile to the victim’s unassigned tribesmen, representing your genetic legacy. This does not impact her marital status. Then your Suitor returns home.”

Gotcha! Thematically, this makes sense; however, in the example that follows, I’m not sure the rule is being applied as I understood it:

“Example (fog of love): An Archaic daughter married to a Neanderthal is being courted by Archaic and Cro-Magnon. All three players unsuccessfully roll for combat in Phase 3. Then, in vocabulary order they each make a courtship roll in Phase 4. Archaic goes first, and rolls a “2” which defeats the other suitors. The yellow ex-husband is sent home, as is the Cro-Magnon. If instead the Cro-Magnon succeeded, and Cro-Magnon was promiscuous, then the yellow Husband remains and all the suitors go home. A red Wanderluster is added to the Neanderthal tribesmen.”

Two questions:
1.) In the scenario where the Archaic suitor won, the displaced husband is “sent home”. This is consistent with my interpretation above i.e., displaced husbands return to their original (matching colour) tribe’s unassigned tribesmen. Correct?

2.) In the next scenario where the Cro-Magnon succeeded, why is the red Wanderluster added to the ex-husband’s tribe i.e., Neanderthal? Should they not be added to the daughter’s tribe i.e., Archaic? This would be more thematically consistent.

3. Divorce

F1.b. “Your Husbands may leave daughters during negotiations, joining your unassigned tribesmen.”

In this case, it sounds like the Husband returns to home joining their original tribe’s unassigned tribesmen i.e., Neaderthal to Neanderthal; Arcaic to Arcaic, etc., correct? This would be internally consistent with my theory that displaced husbands always return to their original (matching colour) tribe’s unassigned tribesmen.

Hope this reaches you and you’re able to help! Love this game. It’s strategic depth is remarkable and, for the footprint and set-up/takedown time, it’s one of the best out there!

Thanks!
