Please Read The Rules Thoroughly Before Posting!

Every single person on the team, read the manual, cover to cover, NO skimming. Do not give the task of knowing the rules to a few people. Do not pass go, do not collect $200, READ THE MANUAL.

It is so very important that everyone is sharing valid ideas and using time wisely.

If you have not downloaded the encrypted game manual to some device you own, I highly suggest you do so now!

Please refrain from posting questions about the game until you have read the manual cover to cover. Please try to find the answer to your question in the manual before you ask on CD.

Read the manual. Read the manual. Read the manual. Read the manual. Read the manual. Read the manual. Read the manual. Read the manual. Read the manual. Read the manual. Read the manual.

Re: Please Read The Rules Thoroughly Before Posting!

When I first joined in 2015, I invited one of my friends mid-season. Several weeks in, he did not realize that the green recycling bin in our lab was a game element. I immediately gave him our copy of the manual.

PLEASE read the manual. Read it over, and read it well.

BTW here is the link to the Encrypted Game Manual and Field Drawings(which will be intermittently available for download after the game reveal[and actually able to download many hours later after the server is no longer swamped]).

Re: Please Read The Rules Thoroughly Before Posting!

And, if you "don't wanna" read the manual...



Then at least do everybody a favor and read some CD threads in case somebody ELSE didn't get the memo, and asked if they can use hydraulics to aim their steam cannon (BTW, the answer for the last 25 years has been "No", just so everybody's aware--but that doesn't mean it won't change for 2017). Search is in the orange bar near the top of every page.



On second thought... Maybe it's just easier to read the Manual.

Re: Please Read The Rules Thoroughly Before Posting!

I know that the posts asking for info that is clearly laid forth in the rules will still happen, but if this thread stops at least 2 threads it will have been worth it.

Is there any way that the mods could sticky this or some manner of announcement for the weekend? If they feel it might do any good.
