Hey everyone,

a lot of people were asking for the English rules for the Mini-Expansion sold at Essen 2015 and since I have the English version, that also contains the French rules, I decided to upload them to the file section of BGG... but since I didn't ask for any authorization from Z-Man to do this the files weren't approved...

Decided to make Images of it and put them in my gallery so the ones that come here looking can find them, so here they are and I hope this will help some of you fine people

Cheers

ENGLISH





FRENCH

I had much fun testing them and each of them presents you with a new twist. These gifts can also come handy...

Thanks for the rules!

What happens, if a player draws a gift, that doesn't help him, because he already has the same character ability? (e.g. Rashid ad-Din Sinan gets the gift "dice with x")

Just bad luck???

I would just allow them to take a mulligan...set that tile aside, draw a new one, and reshuffle the mulliganed tile back into the pile.

Exactly, that is bad luck, OTOH when you get the tile nobody else can get it...

Not allowing others to get a particular tile is pretty meaningless since all other tiles confer a benefit.

To me, this is an unacceptable level of bad luck and I would absolutely allow another draw.

There are other instances when you won´t have any benefit by getting a gift. However I am at the Hans im Glück offices tommorrow and will inform you what the official word will be in regard to this fact

See this text? It's a gratuitous waste of GeekGold.

The game itself isn't important. Spending time intellectually jousting with likeminded folks is the real reason to game.

Will there be a way to get this outside of Essen?

Okay, the official word, should get into a FAQ is that in instances when you draw a gift which has the function identical to your characters ability, you discard the gift and draw a new one.

Hope that helps and everybody is happy now

Thanks for the Rules.
But, on French Rules, there is an error on Gunj KöKöchin. On the Actions Spaces, the sentences are reversed ("Déplacez votre pion ... "<=>"Prenez 2 chameaux ...").

WOW! Cool stuff. Wouldn't it be great for these to show up on Yucata?

If I may be so bold as to ask, how does one pronounce "Knechtskern"?

I need to know so that when someone asks where I got it that you can mulligan a gift, I can yell "Klaus Knechtskern said so!!!"

I think they will show up on yucata one day.

Regarding the pronounciation, that is difficult as I am not that much into phonetic transcription. Just say Klaus said so
