Is there a particular reason that Queen Games don't have any (that I've been able to find, anyway) of the rules for their games available in PDF form on their website? I find reading the rules to be indispensable in determining if a game might be something worth pursuing as a purchase, so much so that I won't even consider buying a game unless I can do so.

I see they have a couple of "Video Rules" available, but as I mostly print the rules to be read when I'm waiting to do something else at work, that doesn't do me a whole lot of good (that, and there aren't many games with said "Video Rules").

I've contacted Queen Games directly (both here on BGG and via a couple of different company e-mail addresses) about possibly getting the rules for a specific game that I expressed interest in, but I heard nothing back.

Is there any specific game you're not finding rules for? I have managed to find PDFs of all the recent releases on their website.

Don't go to the Download section, which seems dreadfully out of date. You can find links to the rules from the game pages.

Specifically, New York and Alhambra: The Card Game. I get that they each should be just rethemes of Alhambra and Alhambra: The Card Game, but that's not something I really would want to count on for my determining if a game is for me.

I play with RED. Anything else is misery. And I don't want an old fat lady crushing my ankles with a hammer.

Also the rules for Kingdom Builder are nowhere to be found... the are links, yeah, but there's no PDF, only a 404 Page not Found error!

Queen Games is one of the few companies that are unwilling to post the rules of their new games online.

Add to that their new pricing policy of many small and VERY expensive expansions, and it went quickly from being one of my favorite game companies, to one that i will avoid at all costs...

Pitty!

I think it's more the case that they don't have anyone that updates their website reliably. They've been posting rules for new games on BGG at least (or at least having me post the rules for them).
