I used to own this as a child and have fond memories of the game, but also memories of its flaws. So whilst I'm rather tempted by the new version, I'd like to have a read of the reworked rules to see what's changed. Are they posted up anywhere?

Cheers - MH

Yeah, we're looking forward to the new rules as well to see if
the minor quirks of the game have been addressed.

Having contacted Osprey direct, they won't publish the rules
until the game is released ... Walts

Thanks for that, for me that's answered my questions as I am familiar with the original rules, but as a consumer giving feedback: it's a good idea to get the rules up online as it's quite rare that I will buy a game, nowadays, without having a read of the rules. And I can't imagine I'm alone in this, these days.

I agree, I want to know if I should preorder, but I want to see the rules before doing so. I have no experience with the previous version of the game, so I'd rather not read an old rule book.
