A question for Donald and the guys and also a warning for another Spanish gamers like me that found out about this by chance.

Dominion intrigue has been sold out for a long time in Spain. Recently, vanilla Dominion went out of stock too.
The base dominion (Spanish) is getting a reprint hitting the stores right now. I've checked with the distributors (Devir) and they confirmed it's just that, a literal reprint. They didn't even change some errata in the cards...

So, are we ever gonna see the revamped Dominion in Cervantes' tongue?
More important: intrigue is supposed to come back in 2017. Will it be the new 2nd ed. Intrigue or a reprint of the first edition (with its errata and everything).

I've been waiting for a year and passing on the original Dominion so I could start my own ollection with Intrigue. Now I'm glad I did. But I'm afraid we may have to wait another couple years or more to see the 2nd. Edition hitting our shores (maybe more if word gets out and they don't run out of the outdated stock).

I'll check with the local distributor. If the devs know something about this or the availability of Spanish update packs, that would be comforting. Thanks.

I think you've done all you can for the moment. It is up to local distributors like devir to decide whether to release the second edition or just reprint the first. Rio Grande has no control over that.

Given the situation as it is, with a batch of first editions reprinted, I just don't think you'll see second edition until the current stock runs out again. You might ask the publisher to publish the upgrade packs, maybe both in one package as a small expansion.

I don't see anything you can do that would not be tilting at windmills.

I don't know anything about non-English versions of the second editions or update packs. I would be surprised if the second editions don't at least come out in German and Japanese, but I don't know if they will.

I see what you did there

Thanks everyone.

Oh, well. I'll wait it out and see. Kinda like giving a job to the local industry. Besides, there's always the chance Spanish editions become collector pieces like the Spanish and Russian editions of rock albums in the 70's with their wacky covers and inline notes that had nothing to do with the originals.

You should see the Spanish Race for the Galaxy artwork. Some "creativity" goind down there. However, if the new TTA lands full of errata I may consider switching to English once and for all.

Also, they used the original base game artwork for the Spanish The Gathering Storm, and they have released the third expansion but not the second one, if I recall it right. In any case, the distributor went bankrupt and yielded the publishing llicense to another one, so...

Anyway, I sort of enjoy having this particular editions, even if it means I may never get a fully upgraded game.
