I need some information for my reviews/shows.

When was the English version of Giants released? 2008, or 2009?

Thanks!

It has only recently been released in the UK.
I saw it advertized and it is on my Wish List.

I'm not sure if you mean available in US or UK because the release date of Giants, in English, is Essen 2008. I know because I own a copy.

I'm simply trying to decide whether to include the game as a "Best of 2008" or "Best of 2009". I always go by when it's available in English. Reports here have now left me more confused than before!

It was technically released at Essen 2008, and a few stores had agents buying quantities there (which is why some stores had it in December) - it didn't hit US distributors until early 2009.

Definitely 2008!

The game was published in English in October 2008. Like Dominion or Le Havre.

This game is language independent (No necessary in-game text) so to me it's clearly a 2008 game. Any english speaking person could have played the game with it's original 2008 edition and have the same exact experience.

Agreed. It's been one of my favorites ever since getting it last spring.
