Dear Targi fans

Kosmos has heard the pleads from the English speaking Targi fans and has decided to put the well loved German artwork on the Targi reprint in the US as well

Brilliant. I know that a lot of closed minds in this country will be frightened by this image (ignorance), but I think it's wonderful artwork.

That's nice, but I was hoping you were going to say, they've decided to release the English version of the expansion this year!

Considering the paste-ups exist, and are free, I am fine with playing thoae for a while.

I got an import the moment it was stocked

Doesn't seem like it (not in 2018, anyway):

Well, let's hope this new edition/reprint sells well! I need that expansion in English some day!

Maybe we can all help promote it on social media when it's released.

Such a bummer. Usually with a reprint you get expansions released alongside and often times included (Kingsburg 2nd Edition). Maybe the expansion didn't sell well overseas? Hard to understand why they wouldn't release it.

Is it just the box art that's changing, or the card art too? I'm wondering if owners of the older editions of this game will find their card art still matches when/if the expansion gets printed in English?

Eric Martin's speculation in that link makes sense to me, so I'm still very hopeful we will get the expansion in English, in 2019 if not this year:

presumably because they want to reintroduce the base game to the market at large; BGGers might know the game, but T&K aims at a wider, more mainstream audience, so you need to have the base game in place before releasing an expansion

Thats kinda crappy. I was looking forward to the release of the expansion in english. Idk why they wouldnt release it asap. Targi will be old news by the time the expansion gets publisbed in English and by then there will only be a small core group who love the base game.

No worries there, only the box art changes because a many people asked for it.

This is great news. The original English box art was fine, but this one is much more striking. I'm sure the new box art will result in more people picking it up from the shelves of local gaming stores.

I actually remember passing up the chance to buy targi a few years ago bc i didnt like the box art. Had i saw this cover i would ha e grabbed it a lot sooner. Thankfully my friend spoke very highly of the game which made me look past the box art!

I love the Japanese box art! It's different from any other box in my game collection. Granted, I have some affinity for anime/manga, so that helps... but it's very unique, regardless.

Perfect, and as other have said now all we need is the expansion in the US... Not sure, but will the expansion work with both the older and this newer edition? I mean is everything compatible? I have a copy of the older version I snagged about 2 years ago so I'm curious.
