The rules available for download from EGG, http://www.eggrules.com/games/games-q-z/xenon-profiteer/ show that in a 2 player game there are only 3 cards available on each line. But the printed rules in the game don't show this. So which is correct?

There are also many other revisions between the online version and the printed version. Go with the printed version. Four card line-up. I'll make sure to send a message so that it can be updated with the final file used for print. Or at least as close as possible.

Thanks. We played with the 3 card line up. We only saw 3 pipelines the whole game, two of which showed up right at the end. We didn't use the wipe action on the contract row at all though. Great game!

Yep, you can even see I took out the rule after making the gameplay video as I had to add an annotation later. 3 is too constricting. Glad you enjoyed! And be sure to WIPE more often. It's a difficult choice but it can get you exactly what you need super-early.

I've found, especially when you're behind in money compared to other players, that you would rather not wipe.
1. You need the money
2. You risk giving those other gives even more or better options

As best as I can tell the rules PDF available at the official Eagle-Gryphon Games page for Xenon Profiteer (link) is still the outdated file, and doesn't correspond to the printed version. Is this going to be updated?
