Hello all. This might be a stupid question, but is it possible to order just a new copy of the physical manual? My tiny (but thick) original boxed version copy is kind of deteriorating and I was hoping it might be possible to score a fresh copy somehow. I'm not holding my breath, but I just thought I'd ask. Thanks!

I have found that the pdf version is easier to use than the printed one. I have a dual monitor set up so it is easy to bring it up
during a turn. I also have it on my Kindle so I can peruse it at time when I am not home or playing.

Right on, thanks guys. Yes, I know that practically speaking, the digital version is all I need. For some reason though, I just love having the glossy paged, physical version heh. Thanks for your responses!

As someone who ordered the deluxe version years ago that included a printed manual I will say this:
While nice to have a physical manual, in practice it isn't a great loss to not have one.
1. It was designed to fit in the small game boxes back in the early 2000's, so it only measures 7" tall by 4.75" wide; not exactly the most convenient to read or hold open as it is 5/8" thick.
So, I tend to use my pdf version on a larger screen (iPad) to read it.
2. It is the release manual, so some errors are in it and you need to see the file with the changes to the rules to know the latest.

Ultimately, it is up to the individual, but while I like having it, I am not sure it was worth the extra $$ to get it.

Well, I'm just going to be real with y'all, and this is probably too much info, but that small size makes it really easy for reading whilst, uh...indisposed. haha. I know I could just use my phone for that. I just love having my pint sized reading material

Wow. I really have said too much. Haha. Oh well, it's on the internet now. I could edit it, but...eh whatever.

But it is the wrong kind of paper, it is too expensive to use for that purpose, and when you flush it releases stuff from the bowl into the air . . .
