Does anyone know if this is being released with English rules or if it's going to be released in North America?

The Pillars of the Earth is my favourite novel, and I absolutely have to own this. I'd rather get a North American edition if I can, but if I must, I'll deal with importing it from Germany when it's released.

I too need English rules asap!

I can probably access a copy, so would love to try it.

It's going to be implemented on BSW this weekend, so English rules will probably come out of that sometime.

I've just uploaded a translation of the full game rules (as opposed to the BSW implementation rules) to BGG - not sure how long files take to come up.

The translation isn't quite as polished as I would like, but I know a few people were looking for more than just the BSW game overview.

Please Geekmail me if you have any questions or find anything that is really glaringly horrible.

On checking, I see that files typically take 2-3 weeks to be approved.

So meanwhile:

This might help in the meantime - quick reference translations of what I have seen so far (there may be a card or two missing still)

Melissa, thanks for the post! One thing to add...

On page 7, No. 2 "The Bishop's Seat", you may take any one resource...
add "except for metal"

Whats up wit hthe rules: "Without a mortar mixer players cant score any points with a mason, Without a stonecutter you cant sell stone, without a carpenter you cant buy wood."

That seems SO random!?
Are those the three starting craftsmen, so that if you get rid of them and dont replace them you lose an ability?

yes.

It's a penalty for trading them away - although there seem to be better mortar mixers, carpenters & stonecutters available later in the game.

Edit: From Melissa not Fraser. Oops. I need to check who is logged in. blush

Thanks Melissa!

We just run another game through in BSW with some newcomers and it was really great to see the translations to cards online. Easier for others and less work for me doing the on-the-fly translation.

Good work and Kudos to Lupus Landing!

Most of the rules were translated onBSW. There have been problems with the cookies on the server therefore parts which have been added in German cannot be translated until the tool is fixed. I did manage to get the text for the cards i before the server broke. You will see that currently if you are on an english page and navigate anywhere the cookies get confused and revert back to German. It is hoped this will be fixed after the Essen convention, then the other text can be fixed.

Melissa, please feel free to replace the text in the Wiki

with your version of the complete rules. This page is available for all users to add valuable information.

The initial question is still on the floor. Do we have a future release for North America? Mayfair Games can you help?

According to Kosmos, Mayfair will be doing this in English, but I do not know when.

That's too bad, I was hoping that you would get it..... But I guess all Kosmos "Big Box" games that will sell go to Mayfair.
