I sent a message to Bézier games and asked if they would consider making a deluxe edition of CoMKL (with different art, too). The answer was that they did not have it in their plans right now, but that "maybe someday enough people will ask for it and it could happen"!

I am not sure how we could express that we would like to see this happen, but I'm trying here (I might also try on Reddit).

If, like me, you think this fantastic game deserves a deluxe edition, I would be happy to hear you suggestions on how to make our voice heard!

What I would like more than a deluxe edition is an expansion that would increase the player count to 5 players. If a deluxe edition included that then I would be all for it!!

Please lets all agree to get rid of the overall grey tone!!

It would be awesome if the castle rooms could be brightly colored! And instead of showing a total top view, may be the art could show an isometric view (like how they do in Sims video game)

That wouldn't work when you rotate rooms.

Have you looked into the Polish edition? I consider it the deluxe version of Castles.

If I could get it with the Polish artwork and English rules, I would do it in a heartbeat. 5-players would be a big plus as well.

You can always just get the Polish version and print out the English rules. The game is 90% language independent.

The Polish edition is out of print and unavailable unless you want to pay big money to get one on ebay. There is no sign of a new print either. Also, yes, the Polish art is nice, but it would be great to have an English version with great art (i.e. without the polish names everywhere).

Definitely change the scoring board: zig zaging is awful!

I have both the English and Polish editions. The Polish one does put the other to shame, and uses all the same iconography.
Worth finding if you play it a lot.

I have confirmation that the Polish edition will not be reprinted. So our only hope is a deluxe edition.
