Will there also be a Dutch translation of the Update Pack?

I asked 999games yesterday and they replied the following:

"Wij hebben dit ook sinds kort vernomen. We zijn bezig met het uitzoeken e.d. Wij kunnen dit dus nog niet met zekerheid zeggen. Houd onze website hiervoor in de gaten."

The response I got from 999games today was pretty short: "Daar is op dit moment nog niets over bekend." (This moment no information is available about this yet). I also sent a mail to 999 games whether they could confirm they were joining in or not. Did this because the English upgrade packs will not be available forever (This reply from DonaldX) and if 999games decides to skip these upgrade packs I will get the English versions instead.

Jay had already included a response that the Dutch had already asked but had no further details to share. (This reply from Jay). So then I decided to ask 999games if they could confirm if they were joining in or not, but above reply was it.

Hopefully though they will join in, either through two individual packs, or combined into a small expansion. Both upgrades combined include 14 new cards (in total 160 cards) and that is roughly the same amount of cards the small expansions come with as well.

I think I'll get the English ones anyway and then later see whether they're also available in Dutch. We play with the Dutch version, but have some English promo-cards included, (if we're lucky also some German ones soon XD) and have never had an issue with it.

Hey David,

The differences between 1st and 2nd editions can be seen in the Dominion Second Edition Review - with Tom Vasel on youtube goo

For dominion: https://youtu.be/5AvdO9zNGfA
For intrigue: https://youtu.be/D85rIfWjM7k

Nice to see a fellow dedicated collector. I also have every expansion up to Empires, and one Dutch promo-card (Prins e.g. Prince) cool The only thing that bothers me a LOT, is that I recently bought the basic game, (owned intrigue first), and that the artwork on the money, VP and curse cards is VERY different from the original (now antique) collection with only the coin and VP shields on it soblue

shake It certainly is an improvement, since it helps you to sort the cards visualy much easier, but now I'm stuck with 2 different versions of these cards, and since they're not certain they will come out with a Dutch version, I have the choice to either:

A) Keep on playing with the mixed graphic versions (which as I said frustrates me a lot)
B) Buy an English upgrade pack (which I rather don't, since although my graphics would be uniform, I end up with mixed languages)
C) Buy a full set of the (Dutch) second edition when available (which I economically don't like, since except for the new art cards and the 6 cards they replaced with more balanced ones, the rest of the package would be useless)
D) Keep on waiting forever (maybe only to hear that a Dutch version will never hit the market, and all my previous investments devaluate, since I'm still stuck with one of the first three choices)

Dominion is a great game, but I would like to see more uniformity here. If they bring out a Dutch 1st edition version with the new art included, they have to make sure that the Dutch-speaking player gets a chance to get his hands on the Dutch improved graphics for the rest of the collection too cry

After all, it is quite an investment we made, and, since I see this as a combination of collection/game/investment, they're simply downgrading my precious collection by making only partial changes available for us yuk

As I said, I really like the new artwork a lot, but if there are no plans for proper updates in Dutch, they will be losing a lot of respect in their integrity, and I might consider to stop further collecting. arrrh arrrh arrrh
