I was planning to pick up the Z-Man version eventually but now see pictures of a whole new version. So did Z-Man lose the rights or this is Europe version only? Looks like they redid the graphic design and illustrations.

This is a German-only edition from Schmidt Spiele and is independent of the Z-Man Games release.

The ZMan edition is nice except for the front cover art. Everything else about it is well done.

my opinion is that the z-man version could have stood to have some better graphic design but I have seen worse (really, the main game board) and the game is perfectly functional. It is language dependent, both for the spell book and the card functions.

Quote:
In the One Draw and Z-Man versions, the game ends as soon as one player has collected either ten character cards or ten treasure cards; in the Schmidt Spiele version, the game ends after a fixed number of rounds. All players then tally their points, and the player with the highest score wins.

Differences between the versions:

* As noted above, the game ending conditions differ in the 2012 Schmidt Spiele version.
* The Z-Man Games and Schmidt Spiele versions of Grimoire accommodate five players, while the original One Draw release allows only 2-4 players.
* The Schmidt Spiele version contains four new character cards and two new treasure cards, includes hardcover books instead of softcover, changes two spells, and uses a more elaborate game board that depicts the spells and allows players to mark the spells chosen with small figures to track who has played what.

I'm seriously hoping Schmidt Spiele will eventually release an English version of their publication of this game. The little books are hard-cover!

I wonder what the new cards and rule changes do to play? I had two games tonight of the second edition and had a really good time.
