Hi, all,

the PDF rulebook link we got a while back (May?) is missing the final 5 quests. Pages 46-51 (inclusive) are simply not there. i've checked the CMON site, and they don't host the PDF rulebook at all, nor does the copy of the book which Google finds contain those pages.

Is anyone aware of a PDF copy which contains the whole book?

They don't normally post quests at all. So don't expect a PDF of everything.

That is intentional.

The five other CMON-produced PDFs i have include all of the relevant missions. Specifically, Zombicide Seasons 1-3 and its two big-box expansions.

I don't think you'll find one but it's clear that they intentionally left out the quests. Maybe they're learning a lesson. ?

The Z:BP PDF they posted was missing most of the quests. And that's the predecessor for this game. Maybe check Arcadia quest inferno, and see if they did the same.

It's clear that they left the pages out on purpose, but the only lesson to be learned by them doing so is that it agitates e-book users to no end.

In my gaming room i have a TV hooked up to a small Android device, upon which i like to have my e-rulebooks open while i play games.

Some (many?) publishers won't release even the rulebook until years after release, if ever.

So scan the rule book or take a picture of each page. Only take a few minutes.

*cough*A Touch of Evil*cough*

That's not been my experience with CMON, but that experience is admittedly limited to non-BP Zombicide.

Exactly what I was thinking. I had to scan mine so I could have it when I want it.

What I have seen in the past is that they don't post quests in the rules PDFs prior to release (i.e., in the window between final rules being completed/shown to backers and actual retail availability).

At some indeterminate point after retail availability, CMON officially hosts a full PDF of the rules on their website.

That's also my suspicion, based on the fact that the URL listed in the rulebook for downloading printable character class sheets doesn't yet work (it currently redirects to zombicide's site, where there's no mention of MD).

Why they do that, i cannot for the life of me imagine.

For the hype I guess! Me for example I cannot wait to get a glimpse. I even tried reading them by pausing the unboxing videos...

If that's the case (and it may be!) then it's just marketing bull****, which is something i have absolutely zero patience/sympathy for. Grrrr.

Just so you know, PDFs of the class sheets are already up. There's at least two threads about it.

Yes I got all of it but the scenarios are nowhere - but that is OK keeps the tension up a bit...
