I'm proud to announce the release of 504rules.

504rules generates rule summary sheets for every game from 504. These are identical to the book of worlds pages, but with all of the conditionals deleted or merged in as appropriate, and with all sections for game phases listed in order, so you can read simply from top to bottom.

Pages are formatted for easy printing, and should all fit on two sides of A4 or letter paper. Please file a bug if you find any games for which this isn't true!

The full source for 504rules is available here on github, and I welcome forks and pull requests with improvements and bugfixes.

If you encounter a problem, formatting issue, or have a feature request, please file a bug!

This is a fan project for the game 504. All contents are supplied without liability and are subject to change. 504 rule text is copyright 2f-spiele.

THANK YOU!!!! I was about to cancel my preorder as I was becoming overwhelmed trying to figure out how all of the different modules related. This will be a lifesaver for me as Rule sets are not my strong point and this makes it work.

This is amazing, thanks!

Noticed a spelling error and don't have a GitHub account to file a bug with so I'll post it here. From game 524, the last line of the Phase 3 A Capital section reads:

I do not think it means what you think it means.

Whenever you become anxious or stressed, outer purpose has taken over, and you have lost sight of your inner purpose. Your state of consciousness is primary. All else is secondary.

I thought these online rules only omitted information not relevant to the current combination of modules. If that is the additional detail in the Book of Worlds then this is better because you don't have to figure out what to ignore.
If relevant information from the Book of Worlds is being omitted then that may be unintentional.

That's correct. If you find anything relevant that's in the BoW but not in a given world's rules, please file a bug!

Wow, that's indeed quite awesome!

Maybe it's now actually possible to play a game without figuring out the rules in advance... got to give this a try!

Well, it's all just a static HTML page, so you can bookmark it on your iPad, or download it for offline viewing.

Hi

I started work on an iPad App, There is a good chance that I may find some time this week to work on it further. Still, I will need to contact 2F regarding copyright etc.

Does it do the "no residents" thing? We played 231 which I thought was "no residents", but using this page it shows as residents. It was my first play, I could easily have misread it.

It does all the other sections correctly, but was mistakenly including the residents phase in the list of phases. I've fixed that now.

This is brilliant. One thing that doesn't quite work is that when you print the small icons for the terrain types don't always translate and so fail to print. If you can find a way of converting to PDF that may solve the problem.

BTW I'm using a laserjet so I'm a bit surprised the pics didn't render.

A thoroughly useful site all the same. Thank you.
