Hans-im-Glück will release a graphically new version, without rule changes, this SPIEL.

Seriously. It is like an April Fool's joke.

Apparently the marketing departments of board game publishers are convinced that tropical color motifs $ell regardless of title and 'theme'. If they can produce some similarity to Tetris or Candy Crush that's straight up bank!

Maybe it's double sided?
One can only hope.

I really like the building components, but yikes, that board is hideous.

Maybe a new title would have been advisable?
How about 'Death of an Ecosystem' ?

Cover art isn't exactly a treat, either. Carries over to the cards as well.

Transparent buildings, that is an area where the garish aesthetics may affect game play - it looks like it may take slightly more visual processing to count the number of floors per player.

I won't be considering an "upgrade" to this from my old Mayfair version, and if I didn't have that one I'd seek out the Hans im Glück version instead.
