So, I have finally migrated the pdf chapters to the blog. Enjoy!


Don't be overwhelmed....you definitely don't need all this to have fun. Start with the first 3 sections if you are a beginner.
And if you are still interested in more and want to dig deeper, carry on with the rest.

    Hey Fourth Wall, this is great and all, but honestly if I were a new player I would find this very overwhelming and discouraging. I definitely appreciate the effort you've gone through with this, but perhaps with this kind of thing less is more?

    I get your point Ari. Imo there are two type of beginners though. Those wanting to crack the game asap and the more casual players.
    I think this is more for the first cztegory. But chapters 1-3 are useful for the casual player as well.

    Agreed. This would be great for new players who want to jump right into the game (like yours truly).


    Also, shoutout to these 5 players who helped me out the most when I was just starting up FML: Furiosa, BSW, 4W's alt Cassandra, Phil, and Bane (yes, seriously). Without y'all I would probably still suck at this game.
