Are there any plans for multi-language editions of this beautiful game? After all, Sierra Madre Games is in the business to produce "educational family boardgames". As a European company, this excludes at the moment all countries where English is not the family language.

I would very much welcome German versions of games like Greenland and Pax Pamir.

This is actually very symbol based unlike most sierra madre games I know so it should be easily playable for germans (though the person learning the game should of course know english). You will miss out on the flavor text though

I guess the symbols aren't educational enough to be of interest to Andreas

Unfortunately, I'm not sure SMG's games have enough appeal to warrant a version in each European language. You could see them as educational in two ways, though: one as a tool to learn English, the other in the intended way.

Indeed, I think the flavor texts are part of the games educationaless :-)

Actually we are playing more Greenland at the moment, and there this is also very much true.
