Redemption Player's Guide...

Anybody heard of it?
Just came across a book called "Redemption Player's Guide" by David Easterling... I did not know such a thing existed, but it will fit in nicely with my collection... Does anyone else know any history about this book? I would estimate it was published within the time frame of the first 5-6 sets... There is one more available at ThriftBooks.com for $6.59 if any others are interested...


Godspeed,
Mike

I saw a copy years ago and found it to be an outdated piece of nostalgia. Probably a cool piece of the games history for a collector but that’s about it.
Have you visited the Land of Redemption today?

It has rules for redemption solitaire.  I highly recommend.

It was published post Prophets if I recall correctly.
May you prosper greatly!

Game history and nostalgia are the exact reasons it is being added to my collection. I am just checking to see if anyone has any additional history about it. *hmmm, I wonder if I could get it signed by David Easterling?*

  It'd be a minimum of 100,000 pages.

I think it should include these, for a start:

https://www.cactusgamedesign.com/history/
https://www.yourturngames.biz/pages/redemption-history
much of the info here: https://redemptionccgfl.weebly.com/card-lists.html
http://landofredemption.com/?page_id=2741 (at least listing the resources with links)
Also a brief overview of each brigade (main themes): http://landofredemption.com/?p=9415 + http://landofredemption.com/?p=9352 + http://landofredemption.com/?p=9281 + http://landofredemption.com/?p=9215

I think this info is the makings of 2 books. One book being a Redemption Player's Guide and the other being a Guide to Redemption. We have our work cut out for us.

What's the difference between a player's guide and a regular guide?

In my mind it shakes out like this -

A Player's Guide deals with strategy, descriptions, interactions, card play, brigade overviews, game styles and such.

A Guide to Redemption is about the origin of, history, artwork, collecting, personal stories and so on.

Combining all this in to one book could make for one very large book. Even as two books they both have the potential to be large books.
