Do we have a date for a US release of Kerala? Coincidentally, my daughter just studied the festival and its elephants in her visual art class! Would love to play this with her!

OK, I got an answer from Kosmos USA. Currently there are no plans for a US/English release, but they are listening to feedback. If enough people express interest, they may change their minds. So please let them know if you're interested! Here's their contact page: http://www.thamesandkosmos.com/index.php/general-inquiries-f...

I was very interested in this as well, and so I decided I couldn't wait and bought it from Amazon.de. I can't tell you how happy I am that I did.

Kerala is a really incredible family game and it will likely become one of the go to abstracts in our house.

I am going to that Kosmos feedback page to let them know that American audiences would be really excited for a challenging family weight tile laying game and I hope you and your daughter get the chance to play it.

Thanks so much! Out of curiosity, was the version you ordered from Amazon.de international or did it only have the rules in German?

Hi!

Yes, it was from Amazon.de International and the rules were only in German.

That said, someone kindly put up a really nice translation in the files section that I found quite helpful. Between that and the scoresheet, we were able to play the game without any trouble at all.

My wife and I play a lot of light to medium games, so this was a great weight for us, and I think it's also a great weight for families that like some interesting decisions without too much brain burning.

Just stumbled on this via someone's blogging on the ton of games they've played lately. This seems perfect for our family. I've sent a note to the makers, asking for US/NA release. Fingers crossed. Amazon.de is always a fallback I suppose.

Yep, I decided to import. Couldn't wait. Great game, hope Kosmos brings it here!

My wife and I played this game at BGG.CON (Spring) 2016 after watching Jeremy Heilman's excellent review.. We loved it. It was the game I was most anxious to order after coming home from the convention. Sadly, it looks like I'll have to go through amazon.de. However, I do plan to contact Kosmos USA.

Awesome! Thanks, Stephen. I checked BoardGamePrices and didn't see it in any US retailers. But it's ordered, and on the way now. Today is our 17th wedding anniversary. So, Nancilynn says it's my gift Thanks again.

W. Eric Martin just tweeted that Thames & Kosmos will be releasing this in the US.
Also, he wants to record a video to share his love of Kerala.
