Finding Game Instructions (for American games) – from Bruce Whitehill
There are a number of websites through which you may be able to find or purchase instructions for American games. Some sites offer rules for free; most charge a nominal fee anywhere from $1 to $5 for an email copy or hardcopy of game instructions.
Also, some of these sites provide missing parts for games, as well, and most have new and/or used games for sale.
If you have a game that is very recent (within the last five-or-so years), first try to contact the company that produced the game.
For older games, here is a list of some of the websites that offer game instructions:
The Association of Game and Puzzle Collectors (AGPC) archives: www.agpc.org.
Darwins Game Closet and Darwin Beyers Missing Game Parts: www.missinggameparts.com
