Are there plans by other publishers to bring it Europe?
More particularly, will there be a German language edition?

Or is it too early to ask?

Bezier games has a Spanish partner that did a Spanish-language version.

Maybe. It was offered to multiple German partners who all passed. Very few German publishers are interested in importing games; they would rather publish their own and export them. Bezier Games is continuing to pursue potential German partners.

Thank you, Tom, for your reply.

So, I guess we'll just hold our thumbs and wait and see.
I would certainly hope for a German release!

Is that a literal translation of a German language colloquialism? Or is it a regional English colloquialism that I haven't come across? I *think* I can see what it's trying to convey. Really interesting turn of phrase, thank you for using it.

Hidden trackable information in games sucks!

I play games for fun and pursuing the goal to win the game is fun! :)

Yes. The usual English translation for the German "die Daumen drücken", which literally translates to "squeeze one's thumbs", would be to "keep one's fingers crossed". I am pretty sure that is what meeple1s choice meant.
