"Handbook" vs "Complete" game version?

Post by SerBaldur » 17 May 2019, 13:49

this is one of the game setup options and i can't find anywhere where it is defined. Searching for handbook on the internet only brings back link to the game's handbook.

If "handbook" is the intro game and "complete" is the standard game, then i suggest renaming handbook to something else. Also, "handbook" is the default, and i would imagine almost everyone wants to play complete except the very first time. A lot of handbook games are being set up.

Try to check the 'how to play?' button, and then rule session. There are two rule book and one is called 'handbook' and another is 'code of law'(which is the full game) I guess

I agree that handbook should not be the default. "Simple" is the default for the original game, and almost every time I started a game, I had to abandon and restart because it was a simple game... :O

New players will usually start with the default. If the default is not the learning version they might get problems...

However, Handbook is not really a good learning version; the tactics are very different from the real version.
