This is a strange hybrid from 2000.
It has no KOSMOS blue logo on the front cover, but the rules have the logo exactly as the 2000 Kosmos box looks. On this box cover instead there is merely a circled R for registered trademark. On the back there is a description in German and English, although the only rules inside are in English. Also on the back is the logo of Abacusspiele which otherwise does not seem to appear on other versions of this game.
