This game is listed in the preorder page as bilingual Japanese and English, however, looking at the cards the only English I can see is the name of the buildings,whereas I can see a lot of Japanese text with no English translation. Is this Japanese text, flavour text, not necessary for play, or is it important and I would need paste ups?

Many thanks.

That's why I'm working so hard

As a Japanese-English translator of "Ore City", I'm working on translating the rulebook as well as card text.

We are going to print pure English version. In this version, the whole card text will be written in English. The card text is important for playing, but you won't need any paste-ups if you read English language.

Thanks.

I assume that the translation will be ready for Essen then?
If so, I will place my pre-order (three games now!).

No worries
Whole card text was translated and sent to a printing company.
Rulebook was also translated and is going through native speaker's proofreading.

Translation into English is almost done. It will be ready for Essen.

Thanks.

Morio, any chance that adopters of the previous version can get just the English-text cards for a nominal price?

Will the new printing be bilingual Japanese/English or English only?

Thanasis, thank you for supporting our products. I haven't contacted any distribution staff, but my guess is that there won't be any variable prices you mentioned. As a translator, at least I can upload improved English rules to BGG. Please be patient if you are interested in it.

Thanks.

Thank you for showing interest in our product. The new version of "Ore City" will be printed in English only, with French or German rules attached upon request. The original plan was Japanese/English version, but later we decided to print English only version.

Thanks.

I didn't notice but the game designer has already uploaded the English rules.

OreCity(The_City_of_My_Own) Manual

If you have purchased former Japanese/English version, or if you are interested in English version, please take a look at it.

Thanks.
