How is the dependence on the language of this game? There is a lot of text? Thank you.

You don't actually need the text to play the game if I recall correctly...all the important info is denoted using icons...but you do lose some of the flavor as all the card names and card section names are written in english.

The game uses icons, so once you understand the rules, you don't really need to understand the language at all (some cards like events, goals and traits have text, but there aren't that many of them)

The rest of the text is flavour, and very little of it - if you can't understand any of it, you could still play, but since the game is heavy on theme, it loses some of its magic.

The Event cards with the KS edition or promos if you order them separately are pretty much all text, but I don't at with them that often.
