I would like to buy the German version of the game but without the errors from the first edition.
So is there a German version without errors?

Where there errors then?
Only things I know of is the names not being translated to English for the English version. And names using a rather small font.

Only addition (besides translating names and a bigger font) is a number being added on the cards, but they didn't sort them by number in the rulebook so not that handy Imho.

On the backside of one playerboard a wallpaper doesn't match the color of one door.
And some of the emperor tiles are printed upside down as far as I know.

And too "artistic", something less calligraphic and easier to read would be nice

2nd edition is out and that is one of the changes made.

There's no "first edition with errors." Part of the first run - those that were delivered to Essen 2014 - had the board error, which was discovered quickly and was subject to swapouts as much as possible onsite. Those that hit stores were (believed to be) fine; the current printing is fine.

Hmm, I bought my copy months later in a Dutch shop and it has the error.

I asked Lookout about a year ago and they told me that only the German edition was affected by these errors. Other languages didn't have them. And at that time they weren't sure if and when a corrected GERMAN version would be available. So I thought maybe a year later there is new information.
