Hello, I'd like to know if text is present only on milestone tiles or also on tiles that you draft, and if there are enough icons to understand their effect once explained, without reading the relative text again (I'm planning to play it mainly with non-gamers with low or no knowledge of English, i.e. my family).
Thank you for your replies.

Hello Matia. Thanks for your question. Except milestones there are 14 tiles in the game with some text on. So I guess for people who does not speak english at all it would be playable only if you make some kind of player aid for them.

Thank you Filip. Could you tell me if you're planning to release the game outside Poland and translate it into Italian? The language barrier here in Italy is pretty strong unfortunately.
Thanks again for your reply. I'm really looking forward to play your game!

Just get the polish version. The text on the English version of the buildings is in some cases so wrong that you need a cheat sheet anyway, and if you know ahead of time you have to look everything up, it'll make it easier for you.

For example, there's a building that says it gives points for the #of tiles in your park, but when you check the tile glossary, it says that it only counts park tiles in a straight line.

This is information that the player will have missed during the draft of tiles, if they didn't know to look it up in the back of the book before making their selection.
