OK, please forgive me for being behind on this. Here's the link to the rule book:

As I write this, they are a work that's under construction.

But here's the old blog posts that also describe the rules:

You can comment on the Google Doc as I work on it or you can ask questions here.

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 takes a little longer for you to perfect the game rules book, that's perfectly okay. You are doing that on top of making Sponsor cards and Custom cards and preparing for the next order!! And you are just a one man operation with a real job to squeeze in there too!

Thanks for doing this. :)

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 to buy the eevil card. Let's say someone buys the trinket eevil card. At that time does everyone discard a card right then and then the next eevil card is revealed and just sits there until someone decides to buy it? Is the discard pile face up? I've printed the clues from a couple different places & have some duplicates and it's getting kind of confusing. Haven't started playing yet, just trying to understand the rules & get them in my head first. My daughter said she'd play with me, so there will just be 2 of us. I paper-covered & lined my box. It turned out pretty cute.

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 miniature cards?

The little cards are the randomizer deck. You can leave them aside for now.

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 to buy the eevil card.

Someone has to buy the card for the next one to be revealed.

Let's say someone buys the trinket eevil card. At that time does everyone discard a card right then

Nope, they just put it in their discard, finish their turn, and then the next Eevil card is revealed and attacks. Revealing an Eevil card triggers the Eevil Attack ability, but all the other abilities (+3 ink, draw a card, etc.) only take place when they are played.

the next eevil card is revealed and just sits there until someone decides to buy it?

The next card will attack once and then will just sit there. Although, the Eevil card in the expansion will attack more then once -- more to come on that later.

Is the discard pile face up?

Each player has their own discard pile and they are face up.

and it's getting kind of confusing

Sorry, I know it's sub-optimal to have to use an instruction sheet that's still being written but as of a couple nights ago it's almost done. I just need to write up the attack/defend stuff and then go back and double-check everything else. I apologize for the wait.

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

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