As copies come up for sale on the BGG Marketplace, it's tempting to buy one and avoid the wait for the RGG version. Besides not having English rules yet, is the game language independent?

I've just received a copy from Germany. Apart from the rules, it is totally language independent (though place names use German spellings).

As an added bonus (for English speakers) the players' reference cards are bilingual - German one side, English the other.

Thanks!

How did you familiarize yourself with the rules? Do you read German? Or do you know of a place where there is an English translation?

I haven't seen any English rules yet, but I saw a brief English description on an Austrian website & decided they wouldn't be too complex for me & my mate babelfish if that was necessary.

If you want to look, see http://www.spielen.at/ then click on Gameflash Nuremberg 2006 under English Edition on the left hand column, then follow your nose.

I've actually been preparing to play Knizia's Great Wall of China, but I'll start looking at T&T soon.
