If you're really asking if one prefers the new art over the old, my answer would be "no". I don't prefer it over the original, but I like the new art equally, so I voted "yes".

I like the new art, but I would have preferred if it was reprinted with the old art.

Yeah, same here. The new one still looks good, but I think I like the original better. So, I guess my answer to the poll is yes, I like the new edition art, even though I liked the old one better.

I guess, it happened, because
a) the people at Asmodée thought, it would fir better to their "corporate Identity", say, fit better to the rest of their games,
b) wanted to pay two artists they know, instead of Judi Lamont,
c) didn`t like the cartoonish, but somehow "non-professional" look, cry
d) two of this or all of that. soblue

I like the old art more, because this is a "fun race", wether the new art is more "realistic" and "adventure style", so more serious, so less showing players from the start, that this is a "funny" game.

The "big paws" marker doesn`t fit into this style at all, I think!

No way. The new art is better. The poll seems to confirm that, to a point.

Well, you know, now that I look at it more, I can kind of see it. The tracks are nice in their own way.

Asmodee vs Fragor Edition My Opinion:

- I do like the semi realistic track, and the trees are nice. I miss the animals like the moose, bear, houses, etc. in the Fragor edition.

- I like the original cover (more frisky) better than the Asmodee cover (More straight lined jarring for me).

- Personally, I don't like the new dog number cards. I like the original ones better because the new ones are too dark.

- I like the original sleds for the same reason, brighter. I don't really know how to compare the brakes.

But hey, I guess I just got used to the original edition, and like it better overall.

What?! The poll doesn't confirm that the new art is better. I voted that I did like the new art. But I like the old better. I like cheeseburgers too, but voting that in a poll doesn't mean I like it better than steak.

Due to the responses you are getting - you may want to do a follow up poll on which art fans like better (since more seem to like both but one more than another).

New version all the way.
Granted, the old version was very good as well.

Both are good. I like the look of the new version, but I liked the look of the old version.

I like the look of the dogs on the new cards, but why leave off the tails? The game is named Snow Tails after all!
Yes, I know Asmodee was previously planning on a different name.
But they still look good, so it isn't a serious issue.

I like both versions- the asmodee-version fits, as said, better to their games but alas, somehow I miss the FUN-charakter of the original on the cover.
I'd have bought this game either way! The asmodee-Art will probably make it easier for me to find new players, as mostly younger people will be more attracted by the asmodee-version I suppose

I was extremely disappointed. Specially with the reduction of the cards and box cover.

Dunno about the states but down here it is a huge pain to get sleeves for those small cards.
