We have no plans for a printed booklet-only option at this time.
We spoke with many of our industry friends, and debated among ourselves, about having this option available. Ultimately, we want you to have the best experience of this game possible. The Beloved Edition is not just a beautiful boxed set. Yes, you can show it off. But you can also pack it up into one neat package. Take it to your next gaming convention. Bring it to the cottage. Take it on a date. Show it to someone you care about--maybe someone who's never seen a game like this, and will be excited to learn what it's all about.
They won't have to print character sheets, and cut out cards, and find their own tumbling tower of bricks. They can just open the box, and start playing.
We know that the price point is a bit steep for some people; that's why having a $10 PDF option is essential.
But the Beloved Edition? It’s absolutely luxurious. You'll be holding a sturdy box, matte finished to show off Jess Fink's adorable art. Inside you'll find more artwork in the printed rule book, as well as helpful tear-away pads of character sheets for both Lead and Follow roles. The scene cards are index card sized (a story gamer favorite) and you'll have an X Card included in the same envelope. And yes, you'll have a tower. We found one we love. We think you'll love it too, boxed up with everything you need to play this romantic, dramatic game of ill-fated romance.
