A little confused with the various rules updates in the files - were the official revamped rules I've read about ever released? I notice MMP didn't have any downloads.

Thanks!

It looks like Wade's file Lincoln's War Living Rules is the current official rules set. I'm about to dive into the game for the first time myself, and these are what I'm going to use.

Hmmm, I saw those as well. Curious it's not up on the MMP site. I will be using those also...

The rules that came with the game are an absolute mess. Use Wade's rewrite of the rules, you will be happy you did.

Where the heck did this interest in WW1 come from?

I didn't even realise the updated version had been released into the wild. Glad to hear it. Not going to buy it though until I have played someone else's copy...

Wade's rules rewrite ARE the latest. He and Chris Juel did an excellent job. Lincoln's War remains my favorite design and my favorite game to play.

Hi guys.
Since they did the BGG interface update I'm not sure how the file sections are organized but it appears that it's not by date. Is there a way to sort by date?

Anyway, I think the link above was the latest version of what we came up with. Although I did have MMP's blessing to do this, I never submitted the latest version to them. John Poniske, the designer and my friend, had asked me to do this. It was all out of love for his game and design. It really is a very good game. It just needed some help.

I hope you all give it a try. I'm sure you'll like the game after you wrap your head around the rules and play it a few times. If you have questions about anything let us know. I will be happy to answer them.

Regards,
Wade

May I ask, were there rules changes, or was it simply a reorganizing of the rules themselves.

Thanks! Game is set up, looking forward to going through it and then finding someone to play...
