So here's the thing: My usual online retailer is sold out of this game, but there's another retailer (whom I've used before and also trust) who still has a few copies in stock. I'm thinking of ordering one of these remaining few copies, but then I see on the Treefrog website that a new edition with a "revised" rulebook will be out in march.

I'm not in a terrible rush to get the game, but I'm also not in the mood for waiting longer than I have to, particularly if it isn't necessary. So the question is: are there any problems in the rulebook sufficient to wait for the revised printing? I'm assuming I'll be able to download and print the new rulebook anyway, but if the current version is fine, there'll probably be no need to.

I haven't played before and I managed fine with the rulebook. Didn't even notice any errors. There are some things I missed on the first play, but realised that they were covered in the rules after all when I read them again.

I know there was some confusion about the Shipyards (U.S. map) early on. I'll see if I can dig up the thread...

I'll bet the revised rulebook will clarify this better.

Here it is, and Martin's response:

Not that I can see ( unless you speak Spanish :ninja: ) but really you should read the rather brilliant Pictorial Review by:

It's about the next best thing to a proper video.

You can find it here.

I hope they'll also fix the tile resolution problems in the new edition, so I could finally buy my copy!

"...tile resolution problem..."?? Is this a rules or production graphics issue?

It's a production issue on the tiles you play with, see: http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/534379/why-are-the-images-so...

I have contacted Treefrog about this and will let you know what their response is. I am also keenly interested in this game, but importing to South Africa is expensive, so I want to be sure the the production quality matches the price!

Sounds like the resolution problems will be fixed for the second printing. This is the response I received from Treefrog:
Quote:

Hi Izak,

With the first edition there was a production error at the printers which will not happen again.

All the best
