Menagerie rule book is up!

Get the rules here: http://riograndegames.com/getFile.php?id=2220

This set looks awesome.  Particular highlights not yet revealed: Way of the Seal gives you the effect of Royal Seal! And Cavalry: it's like Villa on gain, but for Cards rather than Actions. I'm sure it will be similarly mind-bending (and hopefully just as fun). Thanks, Donald, for helping us to get through these quarantined times.

Huh, interesting. All vanilla cards (even Pouch, the one card with purely vanilla effects released since Adventures) got a FAQ entry in the rulebook, but apparently not so for all of the Ways:

Some of the Ways are very simple. Here are notes for the others.

Can anyone confirm that the rulebook has all the Kingdom cards listed? I'm eager to start reorganizing my binders!

Just noticed that there's two Marx Brothers references and one Lovecraft reference in the names of the recommended kingdoms.   8)

Here are the 7 Ways that aren't in the rulebook and haven't been previewed, in text form.

Way of the Camel: Way Exile a Gold from the Supply.

Way of the Frog: Way +1 Action When you discard this from play this turn, put it onto your deck.

Way of the Goat: Way Trash a card from your hand.

Way of the Monkey: Way +1 Buy +$1

Way of the Mule: Way +1 Action +$1

Way of the Otter: Way +2 Cards

Way of the Worm: Way Exile an Estate from the Supply.

Takeaway from first game: gamble is an absurdly high skill card.

Hmm. I wonder how much mileage there is on a 3/4 split in buying an important $3-cost, then Gamble+Gamble(+a third Gamble if the first two find Coppers)?

Ambassador, for example?

Even if you don't manage to play it on T2, it guarantees you'll draw it for T3.

Sad to me that there's no card to get Stockpiles un-exiled after the pile is out :'(. Transport is the closest, but only works on actions....

Maybe the next expansion will have a way to turn Treasures into Actions. Communism?

Trash a Stockpile from your hand.  Then, use a Graverobber or Treasurer to gain that Stockpile from the trash.  Since that's a gain, you can un-exile all the Stockpiles on your Exile mat
