Board: Rules and Variants
Original rule: Randomly select 14 outing card types (there are only 14 types in the base set) using the mini randomizer deck. Order the full sized outing card stacks (9 identical cards per stack) by ink and mile cost in two rows of 7 stacks each. Place...

OK, please forgive me for being behind on this. Umm... Hehehehe... Seriously, no worries. I had a copy of the game and just used your blog posts and figured it out just fine. :) I'm just glad I got in on the early shipment of the cards. If it tak...

Hey Wolfie now we have two ways to play the game! I guess that answers why we had those other cards we didn't know what to do with.

I guess that answers why we had those other cards we didn't know what to do with. Well, if we hadn't stayed up past Aiphid's bed time we might have been able to pull a Phone-a-Friend. :D But I did find out about the Archeologist Outing card we though...

Keep the tips coming for when I find a playing partner--I'll already know how to play.

Hehehe... I like that too. I usually spend the first game learning rules and strategies from other players. Then the second game I start to really play. ;) I only played once but would like to play again. We ended the game by exhausting 6 stack...

I have set up the board and have 2 cards I don't know what to do with -- The Driver and Boxing Buddy. Also, does the last player to play get the top starting eevil card to discard in his deck and then the next one is turned over, or does someone have...

Oh, and what do I do with the miniature cards?

I have set up the board and have 2 cards I don't know what to do with -- The Driver and Boxing Buddy. Those are starter cards. You can leave them aside unless you are playing with the Team Boxer or the Buddy Boxer. Oh, and what do I do with the miniat...

I'll take a pic. in the morning & try to figure out how to post it. I know how to post, but how do I get the link here?

You could put it in the AQ photo gallery and link it here. Or you can make a Google Doc and link it here.

That turned out great!! And you put in dividers! It's simple, functional, and very nicely done!
by TopcollectorProfileContactLogbookNote

Thank you. The dividers are foam backing. They stand up by themselves.

We played the game last night and had a really fun evening, but we had a few questions: The rules state "Play cards from your hand, one at a time, and fully resolve the effects of each card as they are played." While this probably irrelevant for most...

Board: Rules and Variants
Great questions! I'll have to start saving up some like these for a FAQ :) do you have to "spend" the ink/miles before you draw the card, or can you draw the card and add the ink/miles on the new card to your total? You can interleave buying and playi...

I chuckled when I saw the “tap“ was not explained. Apparently, he thought everyone has played Magic the Gathering. *giggle* You can tell who the geeks are....

"Interleave" - A new word for me. I looked it up & apparently its a computer programming and bookbinding term. Never heard it before.

Thanks Aiphid! I suspected it came from MTG, but I only played that game once, sometime around 1995, with someone else's cards. -TKV

While I only played it once, I never realized that MTG was developed so close to home. I went to college in Walla Walla where Richard Garfield (the designer) was living when the game was released. -TKV

Yeah that card wasn't origin ally part of the game so I didn't define it. I should add a glossary and faq to the rulebook.

actually that card is in the original 2013 version of the game. you weren't going to put it in the 2014 version. but I really love that card!! so I might have begged a little... The quote on the bottom of the card is just freaking awesome! and I love...

No, you have the card because I gave it to you. It wasn't an official card.
by The Wolf FamilyProfileContactLogbookNote
Board: Rules and Variants
Umm... you are the creator of the game. You put it in the 2013 deck that I have and you have. It doesn't get any more official than the creator putting it in the deck!!! It IS official!! It IS!!! And NOW it's in the 2014 deck making it double offi...

My family attempted 5 players (though we know it's not made for 5 players we forced it to work anyway! HA!). There were card storage problems so we modified a few things: 1. There are not enough Starter cards so we subtracted 2 miles and 2 ink off of...

The Attack on an Event card says: Each opponent gains a Missing Box unless they can discard a Missing Box from their hand. So if I get "attacked" and HAVE a missing box my missing box blocks getting another missing box. The kids were trying to wrap t...

The first time I played I didn't realize I was supposed to keep all of the same Outing cards together in piles and shuffled and dealt into piles. The same number of cards were in each pile and it played just fine. When I last played, we really enjoye...
