I just opened my copy to happily discover that the back side of the player boards and the Good Deed board are in English. Only things that are in German only are the tiles. I guess this is a second-print edition (?)

I can't really help you with finding a copy, but there is certainly no reason to worry about language when you do discover one...

Tasty Minstrel Games people have dropped by in a few threads here about Orleans, asking/answering questions and just commenting in general. TMG head Michael Mindes tweeted a pic (unrelated to boardgames) with Orleans in the background.

Would anyone want to bet a fake Internet Dollar that TMG will pick this up for U.S. distribution?

I've got my copy coming from Germany . That is, if sitting somewhere in customs or in the untraceable middle of nowhere means it's coming

I have asked my OLGS (Greatboardgames.ca) to order it for me and they did. So maybe you should ask directly to a store.

While I don't know of any stores that have it now, I do know that Boardgamebliss is expecting copies in a couple of weeks. They'd sent me a notification just before I'd located a copy locally...

I have the original Essen version, printed the English rules, and have had zero problems.

I picked up my from Europe copy at BGG.con and the instructions and game are totally playable in English. The only thing you need to be able to read are the instructions anyway.

I checked a couple stores in Canada and UK. They appear to be out of stock.

So you might have to wait for next printing.

In the second printing are the buildings only in German or do they have an English side to?

You can order it directly from the distributor in Germany. I believe it comes with the english rules.

http://www.dlp-games.de/

They ship world wide through DHL and currently runs about $75(ish) including shipping.

This game doesn't have a US distributor yet. So unless that happens there won't be an english version.

That being said, I have played this game at BGG con. I really don't think much will change when/if it gets US distribution, the tiles/building in the game are like Castle of Burgundy. You need the rule book for meaning because there is no text (just icons) for meaning.

there is no English version, but you don't need one...if you have the English rules (avail) that's all you need to play (nothing on the board requires language)...

I think we have been all through that at this point.

I have seen this sort of attitude before and embarrassingly it is almost always by residents in the U.S. soblue

I divide the country in roughly two parts:

d10-1 The United States of America, whose residents are citizens of one of the nations located in North America, who are aware of the planet Earth, and have at least a basic knowledge of humanity's collected knowledge comprised of the sciences and arts.

d10-2 'Merica, whose residents are citizens of their own state of mind, and live in the only important nation of God's earth.

I'd personally have a game where all the information in the game has English in it, not just in the rule book but on all the tiles that have words too. I saw Rahdo's runthrough, and the only thing that had English was the rulebook, and that's not good enough. I want to actually understand everything I see and read and I shouldn't have to go to the rulebook for a translation when there is more than enough space to have both german and English languages on all the tiles and stuff.
