The English rules of the Rhodes board game are online. The rules in French, German and Dutch have been uploaded by The Game Master [15-SEP-2016].

The Game Master is working on a video presentation to give more info on the game, but the rules should give a good idea of what makes this game exciting. The moving ships increase the fun naturally...

More info on the game on the website of The Game Master (publisher):
http://www.thegamemaster.nl/en/games-rhodes.htm

The Game Master will present Rhodes in Essen at SPIEL'16 in hall 7, stand number F-107. MSRP of the game is EUR 35-40. Pre-ordering with discount.

Pre-ordering of Rhodes can be done till October 1, 2016:

I'm sorry, but the rules are laid out really badly. I totally don't get the game after reading them. There are moments with nothing but wall of text! You need 3 times as many examples and you need clear pictures depicting everything, especially the more complex actions like Production, Farm and Harbor, in their entirety.

It should be summarized how you actually get points in the game, not make me search everywhere again.
There's no list of components either.

Very poor rulebook, unfortunately. I will keep the game on my radar, but it's definitely not a purchase material for now, as I can't envision how the game plays. At this point you need revised rules or a very thorough video explanation to explain everything properly imo.
