Just wondering, is anyone working on a combined rulebook for the base game + expansions? I got the one for BSG a few years ago and I'm now a fan.

Not something I’ve really thought about, to be honest. Unsure of how much demand there would be for one.

I'm precisely the sort of person that usually asks this question, thinking it would be a good idea — and I agree: I don't see the need for that in this case.

After reading both expansion rulebooks, I realised that it would be somewhat of a challenge to keep all the rules in all players heads at one time (at least until we're familiar). I came here to see if anyone else had made up a rules summary or player aid file, and when I saw that no-one had, I considered doing so myself.

However, now I think I'm just going to put together a quick player aid with iconography and a brief "on your turn" guide, but it wouldn't be a full combined rulebook. I think the player aid cards that come with the expansions are good for setup and end of game, but I reckon a quick reminder of the iconography (similar to Page 3 of the main game rule book, but with other stuff added) plus a reminder of how Raiding, Quests/Reputation and Jarls work on a single page could be useful for players. Given that both expansions modify the Raid action a little, it may be handy.

It might take me a little while to put this together, but I'll share it here when I'm done.

This is what I was thinking when I was putting everything in the Collectors box. It would be cool to have one rulebook as I will never play this game with out everything from all expansions.

However I am just very happy to have more goodness for this game and really looking forward to teaching the whole collection to my game group tonight.
