You should follow the 2017 rules with the errata posted both here at BGG and at CSW.

Best,
Ricky

The website guy made some changes at the FoF page at GMT's site. Brought the info much more in line with the current edition. Thanks for the suggestion.

Best,
Ricky

Thanks

The living rules section still has the 2011 link.

The game page has lost all the component links , the link to Chris's video tutorial is missing although mentioned and links to other resources has gone. I am sure he kept a backup so it can probably be rescued.

Personally apart from old rules and old FAQ/errata I would have kept the other links to game material under a heading of 1st Edition Online Resources.

The 2nd vol looks a lot cleaner and has Chris's video link.

Sounds like a checklist for new version releases/updates would be useful.
Input from Designer / Developer then check :-All old versions, living rules , multi-lingual (PDF,mobile...etc), hyper links, CSW, BGG. Finally developer sign off whistle

Hm. I'm looking at it right now. It links to the 2017 rules and the errata from 9/13/17

That was my decision. It was out of date.

Looking at it right now and linked straight to Chris's videos. Not sure why it isn't there for you.

[And now 2 minutes later the link is gone for me, too. Weird. We'll get that fixed]

Best,
Ricky

Must be very minor as not mentioned in errata.

It may be an idea to list in the latest living rules (2017) any changes not in these rules for those who have 1st Edition and do not purchase update kit and mark any of those changes that are not incorporated into the update kit
