There have been a couple of mentions around the forums, including word of an improve 2p game, but nothing detailed.

I think the main details are:

(1) New map (obviously)
(2) New 2p rules, and much improved(yeah!)
(3) Coming at Essen 2014 (?)


And for many people (4) must buy

There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

What's worrying for US gamers is that the base game is now out of print, and last word from Z-Man is that they have no current plans to re-print it. Would they release an English expansion for an OOP base game? Maybe but chances are probably slim.

On the plus side the base and 1st expansion are language independent, so there's always the option of importing German copies.

One has to hope that Z-man do not have the rights to the English language expansions. If they do not, or if they only have territorial rights for North America, then a UK English version should suit us all ..

I have the German edition, and it has rules in both German and English, and some UK retailers have it in stock (e.g. BoardGameGuru in the UK -- don't know if they post to the US, but you could ask).

Although the text on the box of Argentum version is in German the rules are both in English and German so you can easily get that

Which version/translation of the rules? The Z-Man one with the mistakes in? Or the original, somewhat... unidiomatic translation?

That I don't know but I expect it to be the latter. But it doesn't really matter much as you can find other versions online

I don't know the different versions, but my (Argentum Verlag) version has clear rules in English that I had little or no trouble understanding. I suspect it has the same translation as the Z-Man rules.

One distinction that might help is that I've seen people in the forums here talk about "kontors" -- my rules never use that word.


Edit: looking in the forums, I find that Z-Man's version uses the word "office" instead of "kontor" -- so it looks like my edition does use the Z-Man translation.

As someone with the Z-man version, I found it helpful to read the Argentum rules. I clarified a few rules that I either had wrong or was unclear about. Between the two I feel confident I know the official rules.

Nice!

Looks like it keeps the sea-route mechanism that was introduced in the first expansion, for that crossing to Calais.

I dunno how reliable the info is but SpieleOffensive.de lists the game as available from the middle of October.
