Where are the rules for Catan: Oil Springs?
Never mind, I found it at http://www.oilsprings.catan.com/
The original print-and-play version is on BoardGameGeek: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/filepage/73304/english-rules
I’ve played it a couple of times with my son. He loved it. It’s interesting, fun to play, and does make you think about oil use. But its not much like Catan any more, it so unbalances the game that it just becomes about oil and what you will do with it, forget all other resources. Which is sort of the point I suppose.
