Hello everyone. With new people receiving the game from the retail sale I’ve started to see some more questions coming in again. I would just like to let everyone who may have missed it know that we have a new reworked rulebook well in development. You can download it here.

To answer a couple questions about this in advance:

This will be the rulebook in the 2nd print run of the game.

Yes, we are making a printed version of this available during the 2nd Kickstarter campaign. The upgrade pack will have its own pledge level and will also be available as an add-on for people who want the expansion.

We are still waiting on the manufacturing price of the upgrade pack but we expect to be able to offer it for $10 or less.

If you have any comments or questions about the new rulebook feel free to send them to info@ninthhaven.com.

Thanks for the link; for the upgrade pack are you able to include a sticker (or some other fix, though I think sticker is easiest?) for Dinogenics IOM, to fix the typo on the game board? It probably shouldn't bother me, but it really does seem to stick out like a sore thumb.

I just want to shout out that the new rule book is like night and day compared to the old.

Really great job!

Are you just fixing typos, or adding rules clarifications or actually changing some rules? What is the scope of the new manual?

Does your religion have lightsabers? Nope? Didn't think so.

This entire method of handling it shows how much respect you have for your customers and exactly how to run a game company. I wish other companies would take note.

Awesome, great news. You mentioned "working on" a new rulebook. When do you expect it to be final? I'd print out a "final" version.

Stickers are under consideration. In my experience a lot of people don’t like the idea of putting stickers on their components but in this case it is really the only cost effective option. It would be two, one for the Main Board and one for the Visitor Board. The Visitor Board itself is not a typo, just a change in how we are referring to seasons in the new rulebook. (Pre-season is no longer referenced)

It’s mostly clarifications. There are a few edge case rules that were needlessly complex that we have simply streamlined. Most of this is covered in the new “Proper Habitats” section.

Very soon. By the end of the month most likely. The version posted above is already 95% of the way there. It is just a couple sentences that need a touch up.

I noticed that the DNA Archive tile has been errata'ed or clarified so that it scores 1VP per unique card in the boneyard, rather than 1VP per card.

Oh that's a welcome change.
