I'm going to assume that Jay made a typo and that

Quote:

Is actually referring to 2 player rules for Princes of Florence.

In the german edition, it were the same as in the earlier expansion, which was only available if you bought the Puerto-Rico-PC game.

I sure hope they are some new buildings, since Rio Grande already sells the old "new" buildings as a standalone product.

I'm excited to see that I'll be able to upgrade my Princes of Florence.

Speaking of rio grande selling the expansion. According to thoughthammer it is out of stock, out of print, with no reported plans for a reprint(according to their feb'09 update). Hopefully it gets reprinted soon if its not part of this set as i'd imagine interest in it may be sparked again for those late to the game.

The Puerto Rico Expansion sold with the PC-game included 12 x 2 small buildings and 2 big buildings. The german edition of the 10 Jahre alea - Schatzkiste includes all of these buildings and also different 4 x 2 small buildings and 1 more big building.

These 4x2 small and 1 big buildings are those from the Nobles expansion. They shouldn't be played standalone and do not replace old buildings like the others do.

I sent a note to RGG and was informed that while there is still no print date, November is now the targeted time frame.

I asked a question about the availability of this on the RGG website and received the following answer 3 days ago:

>>Is November looking like a firm date?

>Yes, according to Ravensburger, it will print at the end of October. Jay

I emailed RGG to ask about the latest availability estimate. Note from Jay says they expect to get this in on Monday. Could it be true? Hope so!

Boards & Bits has this listed as in stock (in Ohio).

Update: I just checked again, and B&B has added this remark:
--Condition notes: This has a street date of 12/23 and will not be shipped to arrive before that date.
