awesome, thanks! The card size thing shouldn't be a problem, but out of curiosity, is the character card of similar size to that of Z-Man's?

We need this for German version of the game (by Pegasus Spiele)!

I cannot believe that there is so little love for us here, so many of those promos and mini-expansions are released and all of 'em are for English version only; Trait Cards I & II, Beast Cards, Sailor Character, Beach Cards!

I am feeling somehow penalized and thus sorry for getting it, since with all those extras that are incompatible with German version, it feels like game we have is incomplete.

I believe only the Beast Cards are incompatible with most versions. Everything else is fully compatible as long as your users don't mind English. Everything else works separately and is not mixed in with existing cards in a way that matters...

There is also the Spyglass promo, that is also only available in English.

But the German version has the best rulebook.

English and German are both "Germanic" languages, but no matter "my" understanding of any languages, different ones are incompatible per se.

You can mix languages. I use German promos in Middle-earth that aren't available in English. Not ideal, but it works.

I can, but I can also combine many things but that is not the point...

Good example is this, some of our family members don't understand English, and therefore cannot normally play game with English components that are language dependent (which RC is)...


So please, I don't want to sound impolite, but please stop telling me I could use English and German components together, I know that, but the experience is flawed then (even for me, no matter my understanding).
It is not fair that customers that have purchased non-english versions are cut from those extras for so long. Really I know, it is not the case, but it still feels that game is incomplete seeing/knowing all those extra parts of the game which is unavailable to us.
In the end it seems that sadly the message is; don't buy non-english game versions.

Well we obviously DO mind, since we bought German version of the game and not the English one.

Quick question, you can use the sailor in scenarios 1-6 and with 2-4 players? Or is descarted as the soldier when playing few players (1-3)?
