I contacted Hasbro UK at askhasbro@hasbro.co.uk and asked if they had a digital copy of the English rules.

Within a few days they responded, attaching a .pdf.

I did not ask them if I could post them here, so I won't, but you can get them if you e-mail Hasbro.

Are there any significant differences from those posted here?

I haven't compared them side by side, but the gist of the rules seems to be the same.

The main differences, then seem to be cosmetic. The official rules have all of the fancy color and illustrations that are in the German rules.

FWIW, both sides of the rules are on the same sheet and oriented so that you can't do a duplex print and get them in the same orientation on both sides of the paper (i.e. the back is upside down with relation to the front).

Also, I'm not sure what size paper would be needed to get the rules to print out in the original size. Sized to fit onto a US letter size page, they are quite a bit smaller than the actual rules that come with the game. I don't know if a US legal page would give a larger result or if there is a standard European sized sheet that would do it.

Oh, not in Utica, no. It's an Albany expression.

FWIW, I also requested the rules just the other day and received them; I have also inquired as to if I might be able to get said official English rules uploaded here and am awaiting a response.

[edit] Just heard back from them and am attempting the process that needs to go through their Legal department (see below); I figure I've got a 50/50 chance of getting this approved.
