The rules PDFs in different languages are now available. Since the files are too big for the BGG file system (ca. 17 megabytes each), they can be downloaded here:

Sweet!
You know, the rulebook is much easier to follow at a glance with the proper backgrounds when compared to the "lite" version. Really good looking! Kudos, good sir, kudos.
These files have made the waiting of my preorder to arrive even more unbearable

Is the English version different from the one that is already in the file section on BGG?

The errors (eg. regarding the amount of Orbital/Monolith tiles) have been fixed. The updated "light" version has been uploaded and waits for approval.

Hi Sampo!

Thank you! This is a great idea! I hope it is just me but I've tried both the English and French versions and most of the diagrams appear as grey figures. For example I cannot see the details for the reputation tiles of even the space hex tiles.

At least I was able to download the rules from another source without any glitch.

Fantastic game BTW. I've ordered my copy some time ago and I am anxiously waiting for its arrival. And every day I review its standings on BGG...

In the German version on p. 22-23, on the border it is still saying "Combat Phase" instead of "Kampfphase" - if it is of interest.

This link is being blocked now -- is this hosted anywhere else? Playing a game this week, and want the new person to get familiar with the rules before we play.

He's looking real sharp in his 1940's fedora. He's got nerves of steel, an iron will, and several other metal-themed attributes. His fur is water tight and he's always up for a fight.

He's a semi-aquatic egg-laying mammal of action. He's a furry little flat-foot who'll never flinch from a fray. He's got more than just mad skills, he's got a beaver tail and a bill.

Thanks for the link, didn't spot it.

Also as a sidenote: There wasn't an issue with the site, realized it was just the DNS server blocking it (labeled it at risk for the Conficker virus or something.. shrug)

Hello,

I've checked a rule point both in the second print French and English rulebooks (the PDF from the links), and I have to say that the french version lacks precision.

On page 19, English rules state that "the dice should be assigned to inflict as much damage to your Ships as possible, the largest possible first". Which is really precise, and leaves no question.

On page 19, French rules state that "les dés sont assignés pour infliger le maximum de dommage à un vaisseau". Which means "the dice are assigned to inflict as much damage as possible to one ship". As you can see, the meaning clearly ain't the same, and prompted me to ask some (stupid) questions, in the light of the English rules.

Might I suggest updating the offending bad sentence by the correct, precise translation that would be "les dés doivent être assignés pour infliger le maximum de dommages à vos vaisseaux, en ciblant les plus gros en premier" ?



Oh, and thanks for this great game, by the way

The publisher does not want to release the Spanish rules online.
