I have this on order and I thought I'd start out on the right foot considering all the hate around here for the 1st edition. However, I can't tell the difference.

Are these the new rules?

Not sure what link you're referring to .. but I don't think the new rules are out yet (so I'm guessing, 'No').

I'm not sure there's 'hate' for the first version either - it's still a great game. I think many people agree that the rule book just needs a little more effort to expand on some of the 'gray' areas and provide some additional explanation.

The link is not to the 2nd edition rules but to the preorder of the 2nd edition of the game on the GMT website.

Cannot be the 2nd edition rules as they are not released, but they are done in layout and the art is submitted and is being finalized. I have a couple folks looking them over for a last check before they go out the door. The free companion campaign is in layout.

Great news!

On the hate issue: I haven't seen any of that for this game. By and large, people admire how this game was designed. They just want an improved rulebook that will make jumping into (or back into) the game a little easier.

Ok....'hate' was a strong word and this place is known for occasional bandwagon whining, I just wanted to make learning this game easier.

That's terrific news! Will they be available for purchase prior to the 2nd edition of the game making its P500 mark, getting produced, shipeed, etc.? Or are we waiting for all that?

Thanks,

Chris

I am definitely waiting for that.

Edit: I have a P500 pre-order and am anxiously waiting for the P500 to climb.

Well yes, I'm waiting for that also. But I'd rather get the new rulebook sooner if possible. If not, I'll be patient.

New rulebook release
If they're smart, and I'm sure they are, they 'll release the revised rulebook before.

It could certainly boost the speed of incoming pre-orders for the reprint.

My copy is screeming on it's shelve to get on the table again

The revised rules and companion campaign will be available for free download from GMT. The revised rules will be included with the P500 reprint AND subsequent FOF releases.

Working on what I hope to be the final round of edits on the 2nd Edition Rules and Heartbreak Ridge Campaign to pass on to GMT Tomorrow evening. Thanks to all those who took the time to read and play test and pass on feedback.
