The Homeworlds section is NOT simply a reformatting of the
material on the web, nor even of the section from Playing
with Pyramids about the game. I wrote many new sections and
drew lots of diagrams and tried my best to present the rules
in a fresh way based on my years of experience with the game.

Let me tell you all a bit about our plans for this material...

We have a little more than 600 copies of this booklet left,
and sell a little over 100 a month. So we will sell through
them by the time the new boxed set we are working on comes
out hopefully next year.

We will not reprint this booklet when it sells out.

We will start printing the rules to various pyramid games
each as their own tri-fold pamphlet. Most of Andy's games
will fit nicely in this space, others (notably Homeworlds)
will require a lot more than 3 folds, but each will be it's
own pamphlet that folds into the size of a tri-fold.

A bunch of these pamphlets will come in the boxed set, and
each will be available to purchase both as the same paper
pamphlets and as downloadable PDFs.

So we have plans for the content in 3HOUSE being reformatted
into this new style pamphlet, and made available for easy
download - but it isn't going to happen quickly.  We are
NOT going to put a PDF of the existing booklet online, it
does not fit with our plans for the future of printed rules.

If you want these beautiful rules to this wonderful game soon,
buy yourself a copy of 3HOUSE before it goes out of print!

The cost is only $3 ---> http://store.looneylabs.com/3HOUSE

Thanks for all the lively discussion about Binary Homewolds,
who is coming to Origins to challenge Andy for the medallion?
