Does anyone have the rules PDF for the game or the rules pdf from the kickstarter? I logged in but all the links are dead.

I'd like to create game pages in the same style as the main rulebook for the 22 extra games but I need the pdfs to use as templates.

The page you linked to has both a template and the font to download.

I would be interested in this, planned to do it myself sooner or later (means later).

PS: I noticed that Blam! rules on looneylabs web are already in this format.

Yes, Blam! is the only one in the current style. I'll certainly post it to the file section if I can finish the project.

Does anyone know if LL are planning to do all of them (the 22 extra, I mean)? Otherwise, I am also working on a project to adapt the rules to the same format (well, for an approximate value of "same" - e.g. leaving off the background to make the pages more print-friendly).

Would you mind doing a version with the background as an option? I don't have access to a good pdf editor right now but I want to make the pages look just like they do in the instruction booklet. I might even create a custom pdf for use with tablets. There, the background will make it really look nice.

Hi Eric. The template I have created uses LibreOffice (sorry, but I am biased towards Linux or, failing that, at least open source). Its a close match, but I will not claim its exact (in the sense of "just like the instruction booklet"). Adding a background color is fairly easy, except for graphic used as the diagonal fill pattern; I'd need to tweak that. Here's an example:

P.S. I am assuming you have seen the formatting project being reported on here: https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/208281/clean-2-column-rul...

Nice example, I like it.

Some suggestions:
- put the designer name under the title (see how Volcano and Homeworlds do this in the original rulebook)
- maybe use some less rounded font for game titles, to make them similar to originals (minor thing, not important at all)

Good points both! Clearly I did not study the originals well enough shake
