Just saw that my neighbourhood dept. store has ramped up their board game selection to include among others, Funkenschlag. The Korea Board Games edition does not have China on the backside, however, but the Germany map.

FYI

It seems just right. If we Italians want to play with the Italy map, we have to buy the Italian edition ('Alta Tensione') AND the Italy/France expansion.

Ok, it needs a separate entry in the database then!

So someone who buys this expansion gets a 2nd Germany map, since they already have the Germany map in the base set? That is ... odd ...

No, I'm pretty sure it means that the Korean base game contains a Korea/Germany board, just like the French base game by Filosofia, Mégawatts, has a Quebec/France map.

If a Korean buys the base game and the Korea/China expansion, they'd have the Korea map twice. I guess the Korean publisher will release a China/U.S. map at some time.

Ah... The original description "The Korea Board Games edition does not have China on the backside, however, but the Germany map." confused me then, as it sounds like describing a change to the Korea/China expansion.

If we're talking about the base game, then I'd have expected "does not have the US on the backside, however, but the Korea map."...!

Yup, my bad for putting this in the expansion's forum. Sorry.
The base game sold here in Korea contains a double sided map, with Korea on one side and Germany on the other.

No. The Korean edition has Korea on the front and Germany on the back. The US edition had USA on the front and German on the back. The German edition has Germany on the front and USA on the back. The French edition has France on the front and Quebec on the back. The Quebecois edition has Quebec on the front and France on the back....
