Algernon pulls it off rules?

Hi-I came across this in an old Special, and I was wondering if there was a .pdf of the rules being offered anywhere?

Hi Danni,
The original Algernon rules have not been available for some considerable time in any format. Big Rich does mutter occasionally that version 2 of Algy is something he'd like to get around to, but I doubt it will emerge any time soon.

However, the 2009 TFL Summer Special contains an excellent article by Tim Beresford " Algy Pulls a Fast One" which is a fast play version of the original rules which works very well. I would heartily recommend it. You can use them to play the various Algy scenarios which pop up in the early Specials.

I think Version 2 was available as a playtest version, Hexless Algy. I know that because it was announced a couple of weeks after I'd bought a couple of hex mats. :-) It's a stonking good game and deserves to see the light of day once again. So, aim for Easter.
