I'd like to have a close-to-final copy of the rules ready to go up with the Kickstarter on May 30th, and I think we're getting close. Would anyone like to volunteer to read over the rules and provide feedback and other criticisms?

If interested, you can either post here or PM me.

Thanks in advance!

Do you mean proof-read for grammatical and spelling errors, or proof-read for game-play errors?

My sis (the newly minted English teacher) can help you with grammar and spelling...

Warlord beats Troll, Troll beats Elf, Elf beats Water Sprite, and basically everything else beats Enchanted Bunny.

If you do a Russian version it would be spelled "Yarrski."

I have some experience proofreading and I would be happy to help with your rules.

Also, I don't know if you have rules in French, but I could proofread those as well. I would offer to do a translation, but having never played RoboDerby, I don't think it would be a good idea.

Thanks for everyone's support! I'm collating the feedback that I've received so far, and then I will send an updated copy to people (including new volunteers). The changes and criticisms so far have been *excellent* and I really appreciate the help!!!

My grammar sucks... but if you need someone to test the dice I can do that... I can roll 1 dice 100 times in 1 minute... Or 100 dice 1 time in 1 minute... (takes a while to pick up all the dice...)

Who does not love grammar? If you have room for one more, count me in.

The same, you just "roll" the "r" in a german way.
