Greetings, conspirators:

We've completely overhauled the Black Orchestra rulebook from the ground up for the second edition based on your questions and feedback. This new rulebook hasn't been finalized yet, but you check the latest draft of it here.

As we wrap up the final touches on the second edition, please take a look at the rules and let us know what you like and don't like about the new rulebook as well as any questions or comments you might have about the new rules.

We appreciate all of your enthusiasm for Black Orchestra. The support for the game took off faster than we ever imagined, and this community was a big part of that. Thank you.

Love the new graphic design of the conspirators! If you need a freelancer for proofreading/editing/writing, you know how to contact me.

I forgot already, will the new rule book be included in the upgrade kit?

Thanks! I just went back to Kickstarter to download the draft and it was a 404. Glad to see it posted here.

I backed the kickstarter for the 2nd edition and can't wait to play! I was reading through the rule book and noticed an error not highlighted on Page 10 under the Success or Failure paragraph. In the second sentence should it be "dice shown below your current suspicion"? At the moment it reads "dice shown below the your current suspicion."

Small detail, but thought I would mention it!

I have the 1st edition board. Will that have any effect on the gameplay with the upgrades? I noticed there is different text on the new board and and different names for the actions for most of the board. Will the 2nd edition board be offered to purchase separately?

The one difference you would have is ignoring your board text on playing a turn while in jail. The other changes to the 2nd Edition board are cosmetic, like moving the map key or changing the color for the Berlin locations.

The 2nd Edition board will be made available separately for those who want it.

Hi!

Is there any way to get a comprehensive list of the amount of cards in the game? There's a list on here but it doesn't tally with what the 2nd edition campaign page says. Sizes would be great too. Thanks!

Both 1st and 2nd Edition have 54 Conspirator Cards and 84 Event cards. 1st Edition has 6 Interrogation Cards while 2nd Edition has 24 Interrogation Cards.

Card size is 63mm x 88mm, standard poker size.

Is the link in the OP to the current final 2nd Edition rules, or have there been updates since?

I've just uploaded the final version of the rulebook, will likely take some time to process and get approved but check back soon!

Is it searchable? The previous one wasn't.

It should be. I'll double check when it goes live and make sure.
