I've been wanting to get this game, but it looks like most of the distributors are out of stock. I was able to find the German language version at Funagain Games for $53.95 but another article indicated that there was some inconvenience in dealing with the translation of the components, so I think I might wait. Does anyone know if the english version will be available again, and if so, when?

Thanks! meeple

I scooped up a german version from Funagain several weeks ago. After 1-2 gams, the german text on the cards is pretty easy to deal with. They use pictures and symbols in most places as well, and you can get the translations here.

I think I can be safe in saying that you're very unlikely to find an English copy for a decent price. It's been out of print for almost two years, and Rio Grande isn't going to reprint it because it wouldn't be cost effective for them unless the German edition is reprinted at the same time. Seeing as the game is still fairly common in Germany, this game will (unfortunately) not be reprinted for a very, very long time. If ever.

Good English rules and component translations are available and, as one other respondent said, once you've played a game the cards are easy to deal with and do not present a barrier to enjoy this wonderful game.

I have the German version btw.

Re:availability?
Thanks to everyone who gave me advice. I have decided to go ahead and order a copy. It seems like a very unique game that is exactly what I'm looking for in a "city building" type of game.

At one time, I didn't really like Power Grid so Ted made my piece a Power Grid piece.

I guess it's probably too late for you, but timewellspent.org got 5 copies in, they have it for $44.
