Hey Folks,

I think I have found a grave translation error in the german version.
The card in question is terrorism (Military Event Age II):
The german text says:

"Terrorismus: Die Zivilisation mit den wenigsten Wissenschaftspunkten zerstört 1 Zivilgebäude jeder anderen Zivilisation."

Englisch translation:
"Terrorism: The civilization with the least science-points destroys 1 urban building of each other civilization."

If I get reference sheets here correctly the english version sais "culture points" instead of "science points".
We only found this because we thought it would be a bit strange to have players count their science-POINTS, not their science production (since science points are way more volatile).

Can anybody confirm I'm correct with the real meaning of the card?

If I am, maybe this should be integrated into the german errata file?

Guess I'll contact the producer (Heidelberger)...

Thanks!

I've written an email to the publisher, let's see what they're gonna do about it :-)

They told me they'd put it into the errata-document... But haven't (yet) :-\
And they said there'll be no replacement cards
