Video Tutorial & SaltCON
I just finished up both the FAQ/Errata document and a full length video tutorial for the game. Please refer to the links below to access both. I will be posting these links to BoardGameGeek as well. If you are familiar with the game, and have time to check out the video, I was wondering if you could do me a favor? Please let me know if there are any portions in the video that reveal you had previously been playing a portion of the game differently. This will give me a chance to review the section of the rule book that deals with that area.
FAQ/Errata - (Background Removed)
I also wanted to give everyone a heads up that I will be at SaltCON on February 17-18. I am looking forward to meeting with people in the area and getting Dark Horse to the table. If you will be attending SaltCON do not forget to bring your "Property of Dark Horse County" token with you. There could be a little surprise in it for you? :-)
