For those of you who have heard of Freebooter’s Fate but would like to get a bit more insight into the rules before committing themselves, we have just published the quickstart rules for free download from our website. These are the same rules which come with the crew starter boxes. Please note that you will still need a set of reasonably-priced Freebooter’s Fate game cards to use these rules.
