Looks like an amazing game.
Will there be an German version at Essen this year?
I only spotted the multilanguage version without German rules.
In the case it will come out later:
The playing material seems more or less language independent. I guess there are only the names of the systems of the ships on the tableaus. So this could be an option (if I am not patient enough^^).

Hello,

German is not yet available, but it's fair to say that the game is not very Language dependent. Our friends at Pegasus Spiele will have few copies with English available for the German Market. We've not been contacted yet by an interested German publisher.

Also the game is selling very fast, much faster than we thought it could, so we expect to be out of stock in Europe within a few weeks.


Have fun playing,
Arnaud.

Means out of stock in a few weeks that there is a good chance for a german publisher to print the german version of the game alongside a reprint of the multilingual version?

Why is the german version only for 4-8 players while the english one is for 2-8?

I think you should be able to play with 2 players ... but I don't think that will make any sense.

Where did you see that?
The Pegasus website is showing '2-8 players'.

http://www.pegasus.de/vertrieb/premium-partner/detailansicht...

EDIT: Nevermind. That's a link to the English language version sold through the Pegasus webstore.
I can see what you mean in this video: https://boardgamegeek.com/video/124856/captain-sonar/captain...

The box does show 4-8. My first guess is that the German version wouldn't include turn-by-turn, which the only way to play it with less than 4 players, but the video includes some of the turn-by-turn maps.

The German edition of the manual also covers turn-by-turn, but the Team Lineup section does stop at 4 players.
In short, I can't answer your question. Maybe email Pegasus?

It is out, bought it yesterday. But it's Flagstore Exclusive so you have to go to the actual Boardgame Store.
