Hi guys.

Just recieved my preordered copy (translated to spanish).

The spanish distributor told me about "manufacturing delay". Basically the expansion comes with meeples (red, White, yellow and blue player meeples).


The game comes with black meeples instead of White meeples. So they have 2 choices:


Wait to deliver the game.

Send the game, and in some weeks, deliver only the White replacement meeples.

I cant wait to read the rulebook (6 pages). But any question about components, feel free to ask.


I dont know if this is allowed, but im gonna link the spanish distributor:

https://www.masqueoca.com/tienda/producto.asp?item=6604&tit=...

As you can see (in spanish) the official launch date is August 2 2018. Hope this brings good news to all of you wanting this game.

Cheers.

This makes my completionist's soul immeasurably happy.

The expansion gives each player 15 houses to put on top on the new map. You need them to Access the new towns (without names) and stations (new cities to send the cows).

The towns gives you 1 great advantage (random each gameplay).

It can be:
- move train 3 spaces.
- destroy 2 cards from hand for ever.
- Hire a worker with 2 discount.
- Build a building, paying zero for each worker.
- Select 1: 5 coin or a 3 value cow.

Places one of your 15 houses also gets you new possible station master tile.

There is also now ods and even cities (eg: Milwaukee at 11 - Black border disc) There is also cities at 13, 14, 16, 18 and 20)

If you just insert it directly into the comment, it avoids the mod step.

I think a small quantity made it out to Spain - I wouldn't expect global release yet

Yes, they sold some with black player tokens. They say they'll send the white replacements to those that bought it in a month or two.

...maybe...the quote from Michael was not certain (see below).

Great news, that should be resolved soon. That being said, I believe we have shelved this until Essen. I have high hopes that a NA release will follow quickly follow Essen - but we will need to confirm street dates.
