I traded for this game years ago, and didn't realize the rules were not present until recently. I had printed files that say "updated rules", but in practice its more of an FAQ with important details still missing.

I contacted Warfrog and they were unable/unwilling to help me. Could someone please provide a scan of the rules or a comparable file? I'll pay 5 gg if that provides any motivation. :)

I own the game but scanning and uploading isn't easy because I have to locate the equipment. Still if no one else can help more quickly and easily, let me know.

Well, no one else has responded. If you can find the means to scan and send a copy of the rules, I'd be very appreciative. I can up the offer to 100 geek gold. :)

No rpomises but I'll see what I can do. Perhaps contact Martin Wallace here on BG by geekmail first?

I wrote to him via Treefrog's email and his colleague replied saying that "they couldn't help". I got the impression they don't have such a file.

Frankly, the RaW are a bit of a mess. I did a quick scan of the files on the site here and think there should be more than enough to guide play. There are a lot of opinions on options to improve the experience - I'm not sure I saw that file specifically but I was scanning pretty quick. GL...

Well, I went through those files about two months ago, printed off several and thought I had the full rules (plus clarifications/FAQ). It wasn't. Our playing session was a disaster with lots of questions that I couldn't answer including some pretty basic stuff. I don't see a file on here (in English) that has a comprehensive rules explanation, and I didn't have much luck trying to piece it together from multiple files.

I'd like to get the rules as written, and then refer to the files here to clean it up. But there were critical details that were absent from the stuff I got here. If I missed a file that provides the clarified rules in full, could you point it out? I looked over everything but its possible one escaped me.

This looks like a good reference to me (it claims to incorporate FAQ info): http://www.boardgamegeek.com/filepage/33503/empires-of-the-a...
What additional info do you need?

Someone emailed a scan of the rules for me. Thanks.

Incidentally, I tried contacting Treefrog / Martin Wallace and was told they could not help me.
