Just saw this today in my Facebook feed:
Was posted by someone who is trying to edit his rules for learnability. He's getting feedback by playtesting the game with newbies (great!).
My only suggestions:
- Test earlier without instructions. It might turn out that simple edits to your board and pieces might help make the game easier to learn and allow you to trim your rule book.
- Develop a "learn as you play" scenario. Quick start to teach the core mechanics.
