I was considering picking up this game, and saw a copy in my local game store. Here's the question:

Do all of the versions of this game ship with German pieces/text on the counters, etc? The box I saw had English on the back (ie, the promotional stuff), but the picture showed the foreign components.

I just want to make sure I'm buying the right thing for English/American players. Thanks guys!

Joel

Rio Grande used a photo of the German components on the back. Just check the box. If it's a Rio Grande game, you're safe.

I haven't noticed that before, but Chris is right - the Rio Grande box has the photo on the bottom in German, but the game itself is all English.

Don't worry, a lot of Eurogames actually have pictures of German components on the back of the box but actually have English components inside. You should definitely go ahead and get it

Yeah San Juan's the same. I had to check twice before purchasing.

Ditto on the Rio Grande comment.

I recently bought Thurn and Taxis. After opening up the game, I had a panic attack as I looked at the turn summary cards - in German!

Fortunately, I happened to flip one over and notice that the reverse side was in English. Whew!
