It doesn't seem that "Manege frei!" translates directly into English very well. All of the other Carcassonne games previously released in both German and English have had titles that translated rather easily into English, but this one is a little more difficult. Do you think they'll try to translate it directly word for word or do it more thematically as suggested in the description like "Clear the stage" or "Let the show begin" or do something else entirely by calling it "The Circus" or "The Big Top"? Maybe they've already decided what they're going to call it in English and just haven't told us yet. I think a more thematic translation of the title would be best, but no matter what they call it, I'll still buy it. Anyone else have any thoughts or inside info?

Dutch version will be called "The Circus". Here is a link to the news from 999 Games. http://www.999games.nl/nieuws/nieuws/the-circus-is-in-town.h...
