Sorry to correct you, Hardy. But Stronghold will publish the english edition. Just english rules and gaming material. Where they will sell the game I do not know. But "International Edtion" sounds like it would be multilingual. That is not the case. Just english. But english can be understood in many countries worldwide...

The first edition of La Granja was considered "english/german edition" because it had rules in both languages...

Best...ode. (happy to read all that stuff online!!! yeay!!!)

Stronghold Games Announces Release of Age of Reason and La Granja
Stronghold Games and Spielworxx create a strategic partnership for these and other games

New Jersey, USA and Billerbeck, Germany – December 17, 2014 -- FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Stronghold Games and Spielworxx are proud to announce jointly the first English language editions of Age of Reason and La Granja, both to be published by Stronghold Games. These two games previously were published in German by Spielworxx. With the Stronghold Games global distribution network, this will provide gamers worldwide with access to these great games.

Age of Reason is for 3 to 7 players and is set in the latter half of the 18th century. Players take on the roles of regents for Great Britain, the Netherlands, France, Spain, Prussia, Austria and Russia, who want to increase their home country's power in Europe while simultaneously establishing colonial empires in Africa, India and the Western Hemisphere. One country working on its own will not be able to achieve its goals, so players must take part in ever-shifting alliances, with whose help they hope to achieve their plans, or at least stave off direct conflict with a potential enemy.

Stronghold Games will release Age of Reason as the first game in its new “Great Designer Series”, which will highlight games from the best game designers in the world. This first game in the series, designed by renowned game designer Martin Wallace, reimplements and streamlines Wallace’s classic game Struggle of Empires. Additional titles in the “Great Designer Series” will be released over time.

La Granja is for 1 to 4 players who control small farms by the Alpich Pond near the Village of Esporles on Mallorca. During the course of the game, the players try to steadily expand their farms into the mighty country estate, La Granja, while also seeking to deliver goods to the village. In this game, speed is critical to success. La Granja is a game that requires careful planning, while learning to cope with the uncertainty of some card play. The player who has earned the most victory points at the end of the game is the winner and new owner of the La Granja estate.

The release of La Granja strengthens the commitment of Stronghold Games to partner with publishers globally, bringing their great games to North America and the rest of the world, as well as to continue to publish great euro-game designs. La Granja follows the success of two smash-hit 2014 euro-games from Stronghold Games, Panamax and Kanban: Automotive Revolution.

Stronghold Games will print Age of Reason and La Granja at Ludofact Germany, the leading printer of hobby games in the world. Age of Reason has a tentative release date of June 2015, and will have an MSRP of $59.95. La Granja has a tentative release date of June 2015, and it will have an MSRP of $59.95. Stronghold Games may have advanced copies available to demo or purchase at the Origins Game Fair in Columbus, Ohio in June 3-7, 2015.

As with all of its new game releases, Stronghold Games will offer Age of Reason and La Granja to its North American customers via their industry-leading Preorder Program. The Stronghold Games Preorder Program offers preorder customers 30% off MSRP, and the guarantee that the games will ship to them before any other customers, including Distributors and Retailers. Stronghold Games’ preorders for these games are tentatively scheduled to open in April 2015 with preorders shipping tentatively in May 2015.

Stronghold Games and Spielworxx expect to collaborate on future projects, thus creating a strategic partnership to co-publish additional games in the future. Further products and timelines will be announced as the information becomes available.

“We will continue to bring great games from Europe to North America and the rest of the world, as well as support our existing internal game lines”, said Stephen Buonocore, President of Stronghold Games. “We are excited to be working on these first two projects with the excellent company, Spielworxx.”

”We are very excited to be working with a great company such as Stronghold Games”, said Uli Blennanman, President of Spielworxx. “Such an alliance will bring greater exposure to our games, and make them available in a much wider market.”

I rarely see a crash in the market until the new edition actually comes out. I'm curious to see Stronghold's production - what box size they use, etc.

I do hope the change the art on the box to make the villa pop. As it stands, the cover looks old and faded IMHO.

Sry... No change of cover illustrations. All responsible people involved think that the cover is beyond awesome! So why change it?
