I haven't seen the rules PDF available here or on the Z-Man website yet. Just curious as to whether or not anybody else has seen them?

Hmmmm...pre-orders are available at most retailers, and according to Z-Man the shipment is "on the boat". Hopefully the Rules PDF will be published online soon!

I was reading the Z-Man Facebook page and someone was asking when the rules book would be released.

Z-Man replied on 16 November:

“We'll post the rulebook a little closer to release, so probably sometime in the next couple of weeks. Keep your eyes peeled, it'll be on the product page soon.”

That should be right about now! I’m trying to be patient!

Thanks, I’ve been keeping my eyes open as well.

Zee Garcia from Dice Tower has posted about Rising Tide a few times via Twitter. He first noted that he lost his first 5 games. He finally won and noted his opinion of the game is...RISING. (Bad pun, Zee)

Anyway, I’m really hopeful the rules are published soon. Sounds like the game is a serious challenge, and I’m excited about that!

Well, here we are. It's December 1, and the rules haven't been published yet.

From what I knew, it was due for the PANDEMIC SURVIVAL 2017 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS, which start today. So I guess the waiting should not be long.

The Babylon Project was our last best hope for peace. It failed. In the year of the Shadow War, it became something greater, our last best hope for victory.

So... we're waiting for a game about flooding to reach dry land?

With a release date of just 4-5 days from now, surely we’ll see them soon.

My guess is that the gameplay will be so different that an FAQ thread with Rules questions will pop-up fairly soon.

Finally!

I just got through reading them, they seem pretty easy to understand if you have a good grounding in the Pandemic mechanics. One thing I had forgotten (but did realize I noticed back with the initial teaser images) was that there is no "outbreaks" track or loss condition for floods. As long as you don't run out of water cubes you can have as many floods as you want and still win.

I will give them another read in a week and by then I am assuming that my game will have shipped so then I will have them on hand to reference. Having the map in front of me should hopefully make the Water Flows mechanic easy to understand. In text only it is difficult to know which areas are adjacent to make sure that I would be moving cubes inland appropriately.

This game does share some similarities with how they approached Pandemic Legacy Season 2 (no spoilers in my comment here only details from the initial game state) in that the spread of the disease/water is slowed by resources/dikes which are added before 'infections' and then removed instead of adding cubes.

I initially said I would pass on this until it was a bit cheaper (I only paid $30 for Iberia) but I was ordering Legacy Season 2 and the price was right around $40 so I felt like that was as good a time as any. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like I'll have it in time for Christmas travels but hope to spend lots of early 2018 playing.

A couple important bits I noticed.

--Floods could in theory happen during setup but are exempted.

--I believe it is also possible to pump water from a region only to have it flow back into that region on the same turn.

--Just with the small deck of Objective cards, the number of possible combinations and variety for the game is huge.

--Last, am I correct in thinking that you could have a 'chain reaction' water flow? If I place 3 cubes from a Flood card to a region and there is an un-diked adjacent region and then there is another un-diked region adjacent to that one, this would create a 3-2-1 scenario during the Water Flows phase.
