A mixtures of informed speculation and observations based on the image of the game.



There are 80 moves to home rather than 64. This is not surprising considering the new theme!

Cards:

Carrots = Coins
Lettuces = Police News

It looks like there are still 3 Police News to get rid of.

Squares:
Coin = Carrot
Lettuces = Police News
Position squares are different: 1/5/6,2,3,4 vs 1,2,3,4/5/6
Red places = Tortoise (assuming based on distribution)
Passepartout = Hare (assuming based on distribution). These look like they are resolved by drawing a card (which happened in some editions of H&T).

First Police News is 15 squares from the start rather than 10 so unless the starting money is at least 120 then it would not be possible to reach it first turn. I count five Police News squares vs four Lettuce Squares.

Money distribution 1,3,5,10,15,30
Starting money - unknown but appears to be made up of 6 cards so likely to be different to H&T's 65 (probably higher due to the longer board)

The numbering on the board shows the number of squares you have travelled to reach this point (rather than the number of squares to go), various editions of H&T had different numbering.

(There is a bit of rules reminder text visible, which appears to refer to "chewing a coin"* or "chewing a police news" it's French and some text is obscured.

* I'm guessing it's not called that

Dear John,

the english rules will be available soon.

So, In this version of the David Parlett's game, The first lady or gentleman to return to London wins the game. However, since you left the
British capital suspected of stealing from Her Majesty’s bank, you will have to return to London without any Rumor cards and 10£ or less in your pocket (or rather, in your hand) in order to prove your innocence in the eyes of the world!

You need Pounds (carrots) to move and you have to discard your 3 Rumor cards (Police News) before back to London.

When you land on a Passepartout space (Hare), events that are more-or-less positive can happen. If you are furthest ahead on the track, draw 1 Passepartout card and apply the effect.
If you are not furthest ahead on the track, draw 2 Passepartout cards and apply the effect of one of these two cards (the other is immediately discarded).
There are 2 types of Passepartout cards:
◆ Events with effects that happen as soon as you draw the card,
◆ Characters with effects that happen later, when you choose to play them.

You can only land on a Police space (Lettuce) if you have at least one Rumor card. When you land on a Police space, you must turn your Hat pawn over to present your respects to the authorities.
On your next turn, turn your pawn back over and discard a Rumor card. In exchange for your collaboration with the Police services, take as many £ as your position × 10.
You must spend a turn discarding a Rumor card and you must take as many £ as you earned. On the turn after that, you must leave the Police space by moving forwards or backwards.

Starting money is 80£.
