B C Z
Anyone seen one anywhere? I like to have digital copies of all mine so everyone can scour the rulebook together.
The rulebook only covers year 1.
Years 2-7 come on small "inserts" in the boxes and give the modifications to the main rulebook in piecemeal format.
As such, a PDF of just year 1 would be incomplete, and the complete set would be spoilery to those attempting to avoid such things.
The rules inserts generally say the following:
Add in extra game elements of the same type you've been already been using. Now you just have more of them.
Sometimes game elements will replace a specific named game element. The replaced item won't be used from that point forward and could reasonablly go back into the box from the year you got it.
Sometimes they'll give instructions to use more parts of the game board (that aren't used in previous years).
Sometimes they'll introduce new game elements you didn't prevously have . Such elements are easily understood if you're doing the entire campagin.
At no time did I feel I needed the Year 2-7 rulebooks beyond the initial "read and understand the new elements/modifications/etc".
