Well, this is nice, and all. However, I would really like to see the rules before I "pledge" money to a game the old-fashioned way, to get an idea. So far, we don't know much about the game, other than the meager descriptions and the playtest descriptions, which are either not really helpful, or a puzzle of information all over the place.

To be honest, the game sounded really interesting last year, but the postponing has made me somewhat sceptical, and even more dependent upon first judgement after reading the rules.

So - any news when they will be available? The notice of "soon" during September last year has somehow lost its shine, now...

Latest news from my publisher were that the rules were currently 99% closed. Then, they will be sent for proof-reading in various languages and finally made available in their final format.

As for a date for this happening, current estimation for that is sometime in August, so you would have the rules available before pre-orders open.

Thank you for your interest and support

Do you need a proofreader for the Dutch version of the rules? :P

Hopefully there will be shipping options for those not attending Essen?

My publisher takes care of that. I'll pass your offer to him.

I believe so. Alliance has been in touch with us, but I don't know if there is an agreement yet or not.
The game will be available for purchase from Homoludicus' site soon after Essen, Xmas at the latest.
More information will become available closer to the event.

I kinda assumed there wouldn't be a Dutch version, but please forward my offer - I've done some rulebook translating in the past.

Why did you assume that?
Past games from Homoludicus, like 4 Monkeys have even Chinese and Korean rules. My wife did the Chinese rules laugh

Netherlands isn't a big country, and most games don't include a Dutch rulebook. Fortunately we're pretty proficient in other languages ;-)

Btw: it's great to see your game getting published. It was on my Essen Watch list last year, and I was really curious about it.

I was waiting for the rules to be uploaded, but I'll say it now in a separate thread.

Box size is small, similar (but not the same) to the Carcassonne one. I've been told that the box size is the same as Homoludicus' 4 Monkeys

Superb! It might make it to the Essen bag then.
