I don't think there is a difference. It's probably just additional shipping costs... Germany is a lot closer than the U.S.

We get the opposite over here. I paid $70 for an imported At the Gates of Loyang, which will soon be selling for $40 with the upcoming U.S. release.

I think the German edition has boats. They're pictured in the rules, but the US edition has pawns instead of boats.

English edition has the boats as well. Boats are used in the canals for the maiden voyage. Pawns are used in the Main rondel.

Sorry, but my RGG edition came with THREE pawns. Two for a 2 player game or one for more and one to use fas a boat.
No boats though, unless my copy is messed up.

The two-player game uses all three pawns. Your RGG copy should have also had a single boat in each player colour - mine did.

To answer the OP, there are no differences between english and german version except the language of the rulebook and the box. And rules are available here on BGG for download in both languages.

Both version should include three wooden pawns, one boat and one round score marker for each colour. Plus five white pawns for rondels and turn track.

Well, in the German rules under the setup part in paragraphs 14 and 15, it clarifies that they are talking about the dark brown cards whereas this was omitted in the English.

This is the reply I got from Jay when I asked for boat tokens:

Quote:
Thanks, Rik I have just read the rules and see no boat tokens listed. Jay

So either the people claiming to get boat tokens are crazy or Jay is being dishonest.
I have no idea which.
I DO know I only received a scoring marker and 3 pawns in my copy.

I bought my copy from a German retailer. It has both RGG and CGE on the box and came only with English rules. It also came with 1 "ship" token for each player. The rules say:

4x5 playing pieces - 3 figures for choosing actions, 1 counter for keeping score, 1 ship figure for sailing in the Shipping canals.

However, I may still be crazy

I looked in my rule book and it says I should have ship tokens for each player. My copy obviously did not have them.

I'm not sure why Jay seems to believe they don't exist.

Maybe he's confused because of the word "tokens", which are usually cardboard. The rules calls them "ship figures", listed under the "
4 × 5 Player Pieces" section:
Quote:
4 × 5 Player Pieces – 3 figures for choosing actions, 1 counter for keeping score, 1 ship figure for sailing in the Shipping Canals.


These are the ships, they're wooden:


Point Jay to the image.

To make this faster and easier for everybody (normally Jay is handling US customers). Go to http://czechgames.com/en/contact/, fill out the form and describe what you are missing. We will handle it.
