This looks cool, but I don’t think casual viewers would necessarily want/like to read 4 pages of block text. Making it more concise and adding pictures would help.


Nice work @ThunderChief !

I agree with @Knight421 that adding pictures would make your guide even better.

I did one of these in 2018 for my team to hand out. The best thing I can suggest is to try and condense it down to one page - casual viewers just need to know the basics to understand the game.

This is absolutely awesome as a comprehensive guide though - you couldn’t ask for much more, and this gives you about as much info as you could get without reading the rulebook.
