2017-07-30: Finally, found the CXA version of the Rules used in China in my computer which I had also done when researching the Lexicon last year. For the newcomer, this set of rules is tougher than the AXF rules, and is used mainly in China only. For International events, the AXF rules are followed. Both set of the rules, unofficial, have been translated and presented for all to understand the game more clearly. Have also reformatted the UNOFFICIAL VERSION OF THE AXF RULES to make it more palatable.
2017-07-30: I had done the translation of the AXF rules last year but somehow forgot where I stashed it in my computer. Found it. Please share if you want. But remember, this is the UNOFFICIAL VERSION. For more useful downloads, please visit the Downloads section on the menu bar.
