Hi there, I'm considering buying the Pegasus Spiele edition of this game, but I'm trying to confirm that the text on the cattle cards is NOT German. I wrote to Pegasus to confirm that the text on the cards is English but it's taking for them AGES to reply...snore

The box says german/english but I d like to make sure the cards are in english before I buy it.

Can anybody who owns the Pegasus edition please tell help me or maybe post a picture of the cards?

Thanks!

Yep, I can vouch for Soren. All card text is in English.

OP beware, don't fall for this false information! You better not buy the game as the yellow cattle card has Holstein printed on it, which clearly is a German word.

There may be those who'll argue that the cattle species (which are the only text on the game material) is just flavor and the color would suffice, but it seems that the game would be rendered totally unplayable if the cattle species were not named in English! whistle

Soren, do you find that the Pegasus Spiele version is better quality than is being described in the Stronghold version? Hoping to find it is better and would spend a little more on Spiele. Did it come with any extras or different items?
Thanks!!

Hi Robert, ehehe, I know it's flavour text, but if I have the choice, I'd rather have it in a language I can read

Just to clarify, so I don't look like a jerk, aleve01 also sent me a PM with this question and I answered him there.

For others who are interested, I believe the components are identical in both versions. It was stated somewhere that they were all done in the same print run.

If you can read English, you can read German too (as both languages use the same alphabet).
Understanding what you read is another matter ... devil
