On the first page of the new Mayfair Games instructions it says there is a deluxe version of Automobile too that includes wooden cars and wooden distributers as well as the standard cardboard cars and distributers. Does anyone know about this version? When it will be available? Will there be an "upgrade" kit for faithful customers who bought the recently available version as a preorder and waited anxiously for so long?

Seeing as it took this long to come out for the game. I don't think we will see anything from mayfair anytime sood. Shell out the moolah to mayday games. Their wooden cars are fantastic.

Except they don't have orange cars, but I'm working on this.

Hopefully an official update will be available from Mayfair. Their new instruction manual says on the first page: "In addition to the standard version of Automobile, we also make a deluxe version. It contains 144 wooden cars and 40 wooden salesmen (in addition to the cardboard cars and salesmen) that may be used alternatively."

Yeah, I hope there is an upgrade kit as well. Kinda stinks that you dont realize about the wooden cars until after the game is purchased and opened.

Sounds like you need to spend more time on BGG -- people have been complaining about that for a while now !

Well, I figured it was mentioned around the site, but I didnt catch it. No biggie though. I am fine with the components. But if an upgrade kit does show up............ninja

Don't the pictures on the box make that clear enough?

Yes. I understood what I was getting in the box. I just didnt realize that Mayfair was releasing another version with the wooden pieces

This in now available for $120 on the Mayfair Site.

If the only thing setting this apart is wooden bits, a pewter turn token and the box.. I will pass on this $80 upgrade.
