Slightly agree with Ricardo. There is a lot of fun of having different phases in the game. I'd advice anybody with less than a 100 games to not try to learn conventions from written text. But to just play the games and learn that way. If you somehow are done with that though there is of course interest in learning from a written text (even those who played 10.000 games can still learn from new perspectives). In the game description there is quite an extensive description (too extensive for my taste, also because it introduces some conventions which are stated quite "blunt" but are better to be used slightly different in my opinion). I also have a 10 page guide written up some day, but it's unfinished, have to search to find it.
