Please don't change anything. Not anything. No changes at all to the rules and ideally no changes to the art and components either.

I'll be the contrarian. Please, please, please change the art. Fantastic game that really deserves a reprint AND a fresh coat of paint.

Really baffled that I'll be able to pick this up, and possibly at a FLGS AND new, of all things.

While the original art was less than great this new box isnโ€™t much of an improvement Iโ€™m afraid.

Edward said in the beginning of the video that the _game_ was not going to change.
The art will change however.

Thanks. Though the art as presented does look to be in the same vein as some of Capestoneโ€™s other recent covers ala Estates.

I suppose this reveals something about myself, but I will probably buy this even though I have 2 separate, perfectly functional, PnP copies already.

No change to the art? Do you really think that in that game there is some sort of illustration that could be really called art?
come on...

leave the rules that are ok, and change everything about visual!

I agree.

I also think Capstone Games actually wants to SELL copies of the game.

That artwork was weak in 1999... figures today.

For what it's worth my vote is for keeping the art as similar as possible to the original. But I'm also in the camp who likes the art in Cannes.

It is the same artist as Capstone used in The Estates that is doing Bus as well

I'd be happy to see an update to the board art to add a little more functionality to the game, but I quite like the original box cover art (original art sleeve Promo, anyone?), and agree that the rules are perfect as the are and need no work whatsoever.

Regrardless, looking forward to getting a copy of this reprint of the game as soon as it becomes available, so as to finally retire my PnP copy.

Amazing! I did my own published-quality PnP of Bus by redrawing a redraw but Iโ€™ll definitely buy this! Iโ€™ll just alternate which one I play.

Iโ€™m a bit shocked itโ€™s not Splotter publishing it though!

You mean the same one where it's nearly impossible to tell which squares can only be a height of one. In the original Neue Heimat it was clearly marked. The Estates I only know which spaces are limited because I've played the other so many times.

Once the cube is on there, you have to look for the rounded corners, which isn't always easy from the other side. At least the obvious white box you couldn't miss.

Itโ€™s not impossible, they have a thick solid white outline and theyโ€™re a different shape and they have sand on the bottom.

Wow, awesome. I've never played it, but I am very interested in playing a Splotter game with components that aren't PnP-tier.

(Though it's a shame Roads and Boats wasn't the first one selected for this treatment.)
