How much language dependence is there in this game (aside from the rulebook)? Could a non-Japanese reader play the game as-is, or would you need some sort of crib sheet?

I don't recall any problems, components had English on them and there's really just occupation names on cards. There's one "how to play a turn" board that has the most language but that had English too. It's the board on the top right of this picture.



From my GCL post here:

Item for Geeklist "GCL Phoenix 188: Thinking Up Clever Titles When You Have a Head Cold is Hard (10 August 2014)"

I need to get this game played more. My youngest son really liked it!

Also, rules have English but the translation I recall wasn't perfect or it was weirdly stilted or something. Learning the game there was a minute I stared at some paragraph or other trying to figure out what was meant but eventually worked it out.
