I bought the french language version; the english rules are avail;able online and really the game itself is almost language independent - once you learn what a place/event does, the iconography reminds you.

Is it a big problem? All the text is just flavour text, it doesn't tell you what the events/buildings do in any way (that's all outlined in the English part of the rulebook, and usually mostly covered by iconography on the tiles).

As others have said though, the TMG edition is the English-only version.

I also bought the DLP version of everything Orleans so I too live with the German titles on the Place tiles and Event tiles.

While that doesn't bother me much, after buying all the place tile mini expansions (Neue Ortskarten No# Expansions), things get even more complicated as these new tiles have German/English/French titles - Ack!. After a while you have so many tiles and searching for the rules of each tile (if the iconography wasn't good enough for you) becomes a chore as you have multiple sources and the titles don't always make sense. I made a List (with pictures) of all the place tiles with both English and German titles to make it easier to find everything. Check it out here: Orléans Place Tiles Omnibus

This might help the transition to understanding each tile easier and get you past the German titles on some of the tiles. Either way, the game is awesome and soon you won't even notice the different languages. In the end, as mentioned previously, the titles are only titles and don't affect game play at all.

Thank you. What a fantastic community this is. I'm sure I'll get over it (eventually), just hope it doesn't put me off whist trying to learn the game.
