Signing up for Conclave
There's no extra cost to starting up in Conclave: just make a payment to cover at least your first two turns (GBP 9.00, or GBP 10.00 if you want to receive turns by post), and you're in the game. You can download the rules as text here, or pay an extra GBP 1.00 to have a printout posted to you (UK only).
Although most people joined the game at the beginning, you haven't missed out if you join later (although some of the best positions will have gone...). Keep an eye on this site for news of its progress and development.
