From what I have read on the forums here, the inn building changes one charcoal into two sand. In my copy of the game though, the inn changes one charcoal into two food. Is this a misprint?

Well, food makes a heck of a lot more sense coming from an Inn than sand. Where did you read it should be sand?

This is a mistranslation in the English rules, which say (at least in the online PDF), "Pay 1 Charcoal to gain 2 Quartz sand (see G2)."

The German rules say, "Tausche 1 Holzkohle gegen 2 Nahrung (siehe G2)."

Translated: "Exchange 1 Charcoal for 2 Food (see G2)."

I saw it in this thread:
https://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/13921622#13921622


and it also says in the rule book, on page 16, under "Appendix 2" where it describes the buildings. It says the Inn changes one charcoal into two Quartz sand.

Ok, that really clears things up. Thank you!

It appears that food is correct, but the appendix in the rule book incorrectly lists it as sand.

I'm a quitter. I come from a long line of quitters. It's amazing I'm here at all.

Nothing like a stay at ye olde inn for a cold pint of ale, a restful night, and then a hot bowl of sand to get you started in the morning.

Food is what appears on the tile, and food is what is named in the original German rules.

The translated English rules say sand.

I take that to imply that food is correct.

And, as you relayed above, the translated English rules also have the "(see G2)" note, which only applies to buildings that provide charcoal or food, not to buildings which provide sand (note G2 is about gaining all of it to a single resource dial).

Ah, it would seem that you, too, are a fan of the Hampton Inn.
