Agreed, I hit a roadblock reading that example as well, and going back to the First Edition rulebook, it doesn't quite make sense there either.
- Multiple Suitors If there are multiple courting hunters, each rolls for success in player order, with the last successful suitor as the new husband and the others going home unrequited.
So in the first edition rules, only one player actually succeeds, and the rest go home. Just like the Second Edition rules. But in the example...
First Edition Example:
...Archaic goes first, and rolls a "2" which knocks the yellow husband cube into green's unassigned hunters (as a wanderlust hunter). But Cro-Magnon also rolls successfully, becoming the new husband which sends the frustrated Archaic newlywed into green's bachelor pool of unassigned hunters as well.
If I'm reading the rules right, the Archaic should have gone home, not replaced the husband and become a wanderlust hunter. The example seems like it's left over from a pre-First Edition ruleset so I'd go with the rules as written, not the example.
How do we summon someone with edit access to the Living Rules? I can see this screwing up a lot of new people if it comes that way in the printed Second Edition rulebook.
Update: I mentioned it in the comments of the Kickstarter and they're fixing it.
