I want it right now!

But no... I don't know when it will actually be out. Sorry.

*edit* I got curious and started poking around. The official site says Q2.

http://us.asmodee.com/ressources/jeux_versions/the-builders-...

It's not overly reassuring that the contents appear to be identical to The Middle Ages. Hopefully this isn't just a retheme with mummies and slaves. So more research...

http://islaythedragon.com/featured/dragons-peak-february-201...

"This standalone offering expands the original game by adding in features appropriate to the new setting: slaves, tools, loans, and training (university)."

Hmm... I'm still not reassured.

The release date should be September. Asmodee and Bombyx plan to debut the game at Gencon 2015 in August.

The French version is out now in Q2. The Q2 listing from Asmodee US is most likely a typo or copy-paste error.

Asmodee US also appears to have used the information from the original. "Antiquity" should include plastic overlay cards for the new university (training) feature.

Here is the listing on Bombyx's site.
http://www.studiobombyx.com/batantique.html

ENGLISH
37 rectangular cards (18 workers, 6 Slave 4 Tools 4 Loans, 4 universities and 1 First Player)
33 building cards (with 4 machines)
17 pieces plastic gold
23 plastic parts (silver)

"Antiquity" was demo'ed at Gencon 2014. The demonstrator mentioned the university cards would be clear plastic (like Gloom) to be placed over the trained worker changing his stats. Since they list 4, these are most likely an increase of 2 in each one of the four skills.

As far as being a retheme with mummies - it's not. No mummies. I relate Middle Ages/Antiquity to King of Tokyo/King of New York.

In both cases, the former is lighter and faster with few choices - while the later is slightly heavier and slower with many new choices.

"Antiquity" definitely doesn't reinvent The Builders, but it does take it to the next level.
