I contacted Z-man asking about this but still haven't received a response. I'll update when they do.

Hopefully they will spell Beijing correctly this time.

It is called "Dadu" back then, but I will settle for Beijing.

Well they spell it Bejing. It's one of the main cities on the board, still can't believe they spelled it wrong.

Well as I expected ... Useless and
Not helpful but here it is.

"Hi Andrew,

Marco Polo is currently in the middle of a reprint process. Any detail regarding availability will be updated on our social media outlets.

Have a nice day,"

I added a comment to your question on FB. Hopefully it helps to get some additional attention. Perhaps if others also ask similar questions on FB we can get a more clear answer.

judging by the endless comments before mine with people asking questions and getting ignored I don't expect them to answer. It's a shame customers who want to spend money on their products can't even get an estimate on availability. I get that they might not know but hell at least give us an estimate even if it's a broad one at that.

Poor service compared to others! They need to take notes from FFG.

Not sure how much it means, but Z-Man Games just posted a picture of Marco Polo on twitter with the caption "Soon. Very soon!"

ZMan's website shows it as in stock but I haven't seen it at other distrubitors yet. Hopefully it's safe to assume that will happen soon?

Got mine yesterday it's the English edition.

Although the green dice are a different shade than what I was expecting. All the videos and pics I've seen have a really bright shade of neon green, but these are more forest (or maybe lawn?) green.

Not a huge deal, but one of the first things that got my attention about this game was the bright green dice.

That's kind of disappointing. Mine should be in the mail soon from Canada. Just curious, does the back of the box show the color of dice you were expecting? Or is it the same color as what was included in the box?

I'm with you. I really like the color of the original green dice.

Good question, let me check....


No, the box shows the colour I received. I guess they must've changed it for this printing.

Check where the newly printed copies were made. It's possible they switched the manufacturer from the original (which looked like Ludo Fact in Germany) to one in China. That's why the first printing of Terra Mystica had some minor visual differences between releases iirc.

Yep, Beijing is spelled correctly.

Though you can still see the old spelling in the picture on the back of the box.

Ah, here's a pic that shows the new green shade - bottom left corner.

Has anyone heard any updates about US distribution of the reprint? I contacted Miniature Market and they told me they had no idea when the game would be back in stock. I would love to get this game for Christmas but it doesn't look very possible at this point.
