NEW 2012 EDITION
Huge Master Rulebook (over 460 pages) includes is all of the "rules" (no scenarios, annexes, SSDs, counters, maps, or ship descriptions) from Basic Set, Advanced Missions, C1, C2, C3, F1, F2, J, J2, K, M, X1, X1R, Y1, and Y2. All rules have been integrated into a single continuous text, all errata have been incorporated, and some new clarifications have been added, The book also includes rules (S1.0) through (S8.0) and the (R0.0) rules..
This is a loose leaf rulebook which comes in a plastic bag.
When you order this Master Rulebook, you will receive the latest revision of the rulebook, so you do not need to also order any updates.
NOTE: This is the RULES, not the rest of the game. If you don't have any other SFB products, you won't be playing anything as you won't have the ship descriptions, ship diagrams, map, annexes, counters, energy forms, impulse charts, or anything else you need to play. If you are just starting, get BASIC SET and do not get the Master Rulebook. It is almost impossible to buy enough spare parts to convert a master rulebook into a playable game. This $50 product is the RULES from many other products and OBVIOUSLY is not the complete version of all those other products. (It would cost much more if it was.)
