I disagree. The rules are fine. The first time we played, we had a four player game. We were all unfamiliar with the game. We put the game on the table and one of us read the rules out loud. Hereafter we could instantly play.

BLASPHEMY! wow DEAR CHILD. DO YOU NOT KNOW THAT IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR SACRED WALLACIAN TEXTS TO BE IN ERROR? YOU MUST NOT EVEN THINK SUCH EVIL, LET ALONE SPEAK IT! SURELY IT IS YOU WHO IS NOT YET IN ALIGNMENT WITH THE HOLY WRIT. DO NOT FRET THAT SO MANY OTHERS BEFORE YOU HAVE ALSO BEEN CONFUSED; THAT IS JUST THE EVIL SINS OF REASON LEADING YOU ASTRAY. YOU MUST RESIST SUCH TEMPTATION! REST ASSURED, THE SACRED TEXTS WERE INSPIRED FROM ON-HIGH AND THUS CAN NEVER BE IN ERROR IN ANY WAY. TO GAIN A PROPER UNDERSTANDING YOU MUST FIRST KNEEL AND PRAY AT THE ALTAR OF WALLACE AND THEN HUMBLY ACKNOWLEDGE THE INTERPRETATIONS PRESENTED BY HIS MINIONS (ER... DISCIPLES).

BE FOREWARNED. IF YOU CONTINUE ON THIS PATH YOU WILL HAVE THIS TO LOOK FORWARD TO AS PUNISHMENT FOR BLASPHEMY:

While a few Wallace rulebooks have certainly tested my patience, I found ASIE 2nd edition very easy to follow.

I hate getting a game and finding out that the rulebook leaves many questions unanswered and causes a lot of confusion. It is also annoying when the rulebook has a lot of poor grammar as well as punctuation and spelling errors.

The rulebook for this game is just such a rulebook. It only takes a glance through the forum posts to see that there are a lot of complaints about this sloppy rulebook.

I simply posted this so that other folks might know what they're getting into before they hit the purchase button.

Relax, silly goose. Everything's gonna be just fine. Just fine.

There is a road, no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night, and if you go no one may follow, that path is for your steps alone. Ripple in still water, when there is no pebble tossed, nor wind to blow.

To seek the sacred river Alph, to walk the caves of ice, to break my fast on honey dew and drink the milk of paradise... I had heard the whispered tales of immortality, the deepest mystery, from an ancient book I took a clue.

My unqualified guess is that if you would have provided some kind of elaboration in the original post, as you did in the quote above, after the fact, or maybe an example from the rule book itself, you would not have received such responses as you did. Instead you made a post with a substantial amount of all caps type without substance for those of us who have not had a chance to see or read the rules. Just my opinion though.
