I played a few games at Historicon and liked it a lot. I played before at Cold Wars in 2017 and liked it then too. It seems like a great playable system. Will the printed rules be out soon?

We're working with the artist who is doing the cover art; she's something like 3/4 done, and that's almost the last thing (we need to make a 99th pass on the text to see if everything's good and to spot last micro improvements). Shipping from the printer is not under our control, but we've got our budget set for printing and the printer lined up and all sorts of stuff. We're hoping to have the first glorious rulebooks in our hands (and some distributors, including Amazon) perhaps in September.

Suitably sexy cover art I hope.

Tasteful, yet alluring.

Having purchased an electronic copy of Triumph! is there a discounted price for the hard copy?

Cheers,

Not at this time.

The price of the hard copy of Triumph! will be quite reasonable. Additionally, there will be an update to the electronic copy that will bring the two versions into complete alignment. If you already have the electronic version, having the hard copy is not necessary.

That said, the hard copy is going to look REALLY good, so completely understand wanting both!

Thanks for that. As you say, it is always nice to have a hard copy of the rules.

I assume by 'REALLY good' your taking a relaxed attitude towards word count, a liberal view towards punctuation and a "what the hell let's just add a dozen more lines of text for the sake of clarity", approach?

Could there even be pictures/ internal art work?
