Hello,

So we have had lots of questions about the rule book. We have one example posted up on Kickstarter, but just for fun, here’s another!

I know, I know; you want to see the whole thing… us too! The fact of the matter is we’re still editing to make it the best it can be.

For now here’s teaser all about the Zombies!

I play games not to win, it's the gathering that's important - Thanks for the tip Cate108!

Well if this one was out earlier, it would add much help in answering the contest.

p/s I've guessed correctly anyway

Speaking of editing:

"ON NIGHT 3: A success is reduce to just a 6." should read reduced.

The second sentence of 3. is also a bit...sloppy.

Don't mean to nitpick, just noticed it as I read.

Hi Todd,

Your "nickpicks" are most welcome I'll change that in the master copy. Thank you for your feedback!

looks good, but why won't you use your fans to help with the manual? us, that we haven't played the game yet might find rules that are not worded clearly enough or find loopholes that are not intended.

if you post a link (only visible to backers of your game) to a pdf file of the manual, we (the fans) could look through it, check for errors, inconsistencies etc...


inconsistencies on page 18:
- sometimes you use icons, sometimes you do not
-- Defending. Roll [dice] for each Survivor {missing icon} in your Squad.
-- Zombies attacking: [...] 2. The remaining {missing word and icon for Zombies} then each get 1 [dice] {missing word: die}

- missing text (Example 2: If [...]. Drop any {what?})

I'm crossing my fingers I'll be able to hamer out some edits this weekend and send a link out to you all next week in an update. By the way thanks for pointing those things out.

You also have verticle line spacing issues on the left column. It's a classic problem I get all the time in InDesign. (im guessing its InDesign).

P.s. please post draft rules, it would help everyone who is on the edge of pledging make a more informed decision plus you get free proof and QA.

That's weird. After 2.5 hours of research, I was 100% certain about the other 5 questions and completely guessed on this one. According to the rules above, I was correct with my guess... which makes me wonder which of the 5 I was wrong on.
