Stoke on Trent
Come on you Seagulls! Sami Hyppia's Blue & White army!
That's weird. This bit used to mention Shire Games, and tell you all how wonderful we are. But it seems to have got deleted. Let's see what happens this time ....
I just received this game and got a box cover which is slightly different than the one I see on this site with the King on the front. Mine does not have a blue border it is just the King without the border. It says 2005 on the back and it has Rio Grande Ystari on the front. Did I get and old version, new version, or maybe a UK version?
I would guess that you have Ystari's third printing (and Rio Grande's second) for the US market.
The third printing in the UK looked as you describe:
But if you look closely, our version says "Esdevium Games" and "Ystari".
It will include the card coins and slightly different colouring for cloth, as well as the improved icons on the lawyer / residences.
Hope that clears it up!
