All,

I just found out about this game and am really looking forward to it.

Should I buy the current version now or is it worth it to wait for the RGG version?

Thx

I'd buy it now. I don't see any eason to wait unless cost is an issue. I bought it from Germany a couple of months ago along with Die Dolmengotter.

I think funagaingames.com has it for more than you might find it at, say, ThoughtHammer, but look at the pieces.

Do you want military units that look like tall, plumed individuals?

Or do you want military units who are waving meeples?

I would have (and did) pay an extra $20 just to get the waving meeples. And I do not regret this decision for a second.

The pieces are going to be different?

Also, should I wait for the english version or it doesnt really matter?

Yes, the bits are differnent, and for the better in my opinion. Having generic meeples and Seafarers bits is boring. You can see what the new bits look like in the image section here on BGG.

I really, really hope this RGG edition isn't made in China. It is the final game on my wishlist.

For the better?!

You, sir, have gone too far.

Meeples > everything

Waving meeples > regular meeples

It's called math.

The game has shipped from Germany and will arrive before the end of the month.

So, aside from the pieces (which I don't care about), is there any reason to wait for the new reason?

Is the game playable right now with the German version?

Thx

Both versions come with printed english rules.

The new RGG version has two english maps. In the old version it was two maps, one in english, and one in german. But once you know how to play, this should not matter much if you play the german side.

The rules have been re-written, with some additional examples and pictures explaining how to fight and conquer.

Excellent! You'll be much happier with the waving meeples.

They fight better, complain less, do yardwork for you, massage your feet after a long day's work, and cook you dinner.

At least that's what I'm expecting. The game arrives in about... 3 hours

Eh, I'd rather not feel like I am playing a homemade version thrown together with spare parts from Seafarers of Catan and Hunters & Gatherers.

I got the 3 new edition of the game from germany today.

The rules state that you only play to 10 ancient personalities, in a 3 player game, but the board still have 12 places in the scoring track and a 3 in the 10 spot. what is the extra spaces for? And is this also changed in the new edition?
