BGG link: Port Royal

Lowest Amazon according to CCC. About a $1 more at other online sites.

Caveats:
- SJG regrets producing this version: Discussion here- https://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/1941842/steve-jackson-g...

So price might drop further if they cut bait and unload inventory. Also, don't expect expansions to be ported to SJG version and the SJG version is apparently incompatible with the original expansions.

And one can get the original version for not much more than the current price of the SJG version.

I am kind of bummed I bought the SJG version as they do not plan on adding the expansions (I guess never say never). I bit the bullet and ordered the expansion and the Pegasus Spiele version. Probably drop the SJG edition off at HPB

I traded all my PR content to a friend who will get more use out of it. Not an entirely dynamic game with only 2P, which is what I play. Good family game, though.

Received my Pegasus Spiele version a week ago, from overseas, through Amazon. Much prefer the cover, the ships without flags (easier to distinguish) and compatible with expansions.

Yeah, I played the SJG version at GenCon last year and then bought a copy. I was so excited to later find that the game had at least one expansion (I believe there are two and a standalone version that's a bit different). Anyway, I ordered the expansion and then found that it is not at all comparable with the new version. So, I ordered the original version so I could play with the expansion. I've looked at the newer expansion, but it seems very language dependent and I don't know much German.

Bummer that the expansions won't be available for the SJG version. At least it wasn't pricey.

Pegasus Spiele is planning on printing the last expansion in English soon (form what I have seen)

That's great news. It looked interesting.

Pegasus spiel box is half the size of the Steve Jackson box? Steve Jackson box is 3x bigger than it needs to be.

The versions I had were dual language. The only thin you would be missing is an english title on the box.
