I've just tried it and it works for me; so I'm stumped as to how to help.

I just downloaded it again and it opens fine, perhaps the download was corrupted or incomplete

looking at the file properties in Windows
the size is 2.21 MB (2,328,261 bytes)
do you see the same file size ?

the file is Acrobat 5+ type, do you have an older version of Acrobat or a different Acrobat reading program ?

Many thanks. When the file is clicked on, just get message that it cannot connect to the internet, though the rule book opens fine.

However, Tim's Link to the GMT website works fine.

Outcome - will definitely be buying this.

KERCHING!

I now own a copy of Unhappy King Charles. The counters are punched and clipped - all ready to learn the rules.

One reaction - wish you'd printed the tables at the top of the map instead of upside down at the bottom. Would have made it a lot easier for players to sit SW and SE looking up the map.

Not per our testing where we wanted people to play in the middle of the map and we found sidewways looking worked in both directions.

Exactly. In my own testing, and now with the finished game, I find the orientation very good indeed.

As a paid-oop Northener living near the site of the Siege of Lathom House, it's clearly a Parliamentarian plot, especially as my birth-place of Preston gets lumped into the Midlands!!!

I'm from Yorkshire, and I refuse to have Lancashire in the same region. I'll let Cumbria off because one of my sisters-in-law comes from there....

It's also a handy way to separate Stanley and Cavendish circles of influence.

The less cool reason is that I saw Bristol as the gateway to the whole Severn valley economic-system. Lots of the choices could have gone another way. I did wonder about putting Lincolnshire in the North, since the Royalist Northern Army operated there, but in the end I opted for the East.

your will is strong

other than intriguing my Bristolian sensibilities (now that is an oxymoron) it does helps to even out the recruitment areas between the regions.
