Hi,

The English rules say that there's a special edition of the game which has people coloured wooden figures instead of coloured cubes for the family members. Anyone know any details of where or how this special edition will be available?

Thanks,

Eisley.

Me too.

I had thought it was going to be a special edition for the first people who bought it so I wasn't expecting the extra cost. I was a bit disappointed that it was an extra 5 euros on the game especially when purchasing it direct from Queen at Essen (so they're not paying any margin to retail) but I did it anyway. I just wanted the little meeple and wasn't so fusssed about the special box.

The game's great though.

I didn't know what to do with my UberBadge, so I left it as a GeekBadge.

Comparing the two editions at Essen, I much preferred the cubes. That meant I could wait to find out more information about the game before buying it, rather than having to get it there and then in case the special edition sold out.

I'd read the rules before Essen so I knew I was going to buy it. I think in my mind I'd already decided to get the meeple version too. Great game too - didn't disappoint like ast year's Batavia which sounded good in the rules but the game itself seemed so-so.

I've put my initial thoughts on Colonia on my blog: http://thegameofgaming.wordpress.com
