... to shorten the time until the EN edition will hit the shelves, I promised to give you access to some updates we did for the new print run.

Check lookout-games.de and follow the links in the first article (or go directly to the download section).

One file is the update for the Family game board, the other card is a replacement for the 3-player card "1 Stone" which we felt was a little weak.

(yes, DE version only at the moment. EN version will follow soon.)

(edited for misspelling)

BTW... to also shorten the time, could you please charge us? It makes it feel all special... and gives me something to look at while the month/month and a half pass...

Eager to give interest-free loans, Richard? I can only speak for myself, but being charged prematurely followed by a delay would only make the wait seem longer.

I have been eager to be charged because I figured it would mean everything is a go, but now I'm about $.68 short of what I need in my debit account.

SHHH. They will figure things out if you talk about the "secret plan".

That's Tim Powers' fictional Samuel Coleridge "quoting" John Milton in _The Anubis Gates_.

How has everybody pre-ordered this game. I had a look on the Z-Man and Lookout-games sites and can't see any way to pre-order it. On that subject, if I did pre-order it would I expect to receive my copy before the retail stores here in Australia ? And finally, if I did pre-oreder it would I get the wooden "animeeples" that have been mentioned on the forums here ?

Cheers,

Graeme

@ chomama:

The preorders were an option before 1/1/2008.
We , who were lucky enough to preorder , will (normally) receive our copies before the game hits the stores and alse get some bonus cards and animeeples.
Perhaps you should contact Zev at zman@zmangames.com and ask him if you can still preorder. (but i think it's unlikely)

Question for Hanno and Zev:

Is the release date for the EN version set to be by the time of the GAMA Trade Show on April 21st?

I plan on being at GAMA, and I would love to see the English Version in print when I get there.

We'll do our very best to get the game out to you asap.
Maybe before GAMA, maybe during GAMA, maybe after GAMA.

you can still preorder from a few websites, try

Is this the same as pre-ordering through Z-man ? i.e. do you get the animeeples and would you expect to receive the game any earlier than your FLGS ?

No, it's a native Australian English speaker. Proofread by a native New York State of Mind English speaker.
Shoul dbe a good mix, but still is much debated by Queen Lizzy...
