Rarer than hen's teeth. You might have to make due with German version, which is unfortunate

I recently bought an English copy to "upgrade" from my German one -- I didn't mind it but the German names were causing problems for some other players -- and was disappointed to find the components of noticeably lower quality.

By comparison with the German copy:

* The colours look washed out
* The tiles are on slightly thinner cardstock
* Where the German edition uses the same typeface as the cover, English copies use a generic serif
* Probably as a consequence, some text is misaligned, e.g. the egregiously positioned "3" seen here on the Duart Castle card

All very minor issues, to be sure, but still, if you're having to "make do" with a German edition, take some comfort in the fact that it's a more polished product.
