Ok... the original version had over 120 wooden "people". The reprint, according to the blurb in Thoughthammer, has "40 people pieces in 4 colors". Do they mean "40 pieces of each color"? Or is gameplay significantly altered?

I assume it's a typo, but would really like to clarify before committing to a preorder.

Thanks

Antonio.

Hi Antonio,

The orginal version has the following distrubution of colors

Red and Black: 36 each
Yellow: 30
Blue: 25

2 players play red and black
3 players play red black and yellow
4 players play all colors

It sounds as though the new version has an equal number of people.

It's a very good game. Light but still with some strategy.

That's weird. This bit used to mention Shire Games, and tell you all how wonderful we are. But it seems to have got deleted. Let's see what happens this time ....

Mayfair's English edition is ready.

I picked one up in Essen.

The rulebook states that there are 36 people in each of the four player colours, but in actual fact there are the same numbers as in the original version:

Red and Black: 36 each
Yellow: 30
Blue: 25
