I believe the 2-player scenario in the current beta rulebook is misprinted. It says that humans get gems and quatryls get wood, but the setup on the page has the quatryl player controlling gems and the human controlling wood.

This is further exacerbated by the iconography on the intro setups not matching any other iconography (e.g. the knowledge icon in the setup is a brain, vs. a scroll everywhere else).

Hmm, I thought I got that fixed. I will look over the file again. I may have uploaded the wrong version.

Unrelated to this, Isaac: How would you say Founders compares to Forge War in terms of set up, ease of understanding, and quality of gameplay?

I used the link in the Kickstarter. Played it with my friend on TTS last night.

I will say this is a game I don't think is well-suited to play on TTS, as the constant need to scan the board and the tiny icons made it difficult to keep track of what was connected how. We enjoyed the game, but I think I'd find the gameplay much easier with some cardboard in front of me.

Judging by TTS, it looks super easy to set up. Forge wars is actually not to bad either as I do own a copy. Compared to other Euro style Forge wars is not that difficult, and Founders looks super easy.

I do recommend playing through on TTS.
