I think a lot of people in the US didn't get Roma. Not sure yet what to do about it, but I'm curious to know as well.

Hi Justin,

Yes, I just got a spreadsheet from our distributor. We unfortunately had a clerical error in our inventory and we ran out of Roma we are sending more copes to out distributor in the U.S.We felt it best to get Escape into our backers hands. I will be sending out a email to all backers that did not receive Roma

I am sorry for our mistake.

Thank you for your support.

I got a copy, but it's unfortunately in German, making it pretty unplayable

and what's worse, I traded away my language independant version of Roma months ago because I was getting this copy in with the pre-order.

Colour me very bummed! Justin, do you have an email address for Nikki?

Similar problem here: I received my copy of Escape and Roma. Sadly the copy of Roma is in German (the cards). Note that this is mentioned nowhere on the web and/or box, on the contrary: everything on the box is listed in a number of languages (incl. Dutch/Nederlands which is my mother tongue). A game in German is useless. I do not expect all my games to be in Dutch (although that is a big plus for the children in our family) so most often English is OK (I already mentioned this in the survey) but German is not OK.

Ouch, I hadn't decided if I was going to open this or use it as trade fodder. I would hate to send off a box in shrink to someone and improperly advertise the language! I'll be curious to see how this unfolds.

Can anyone in the US who did get their Roma confirm whether it was in German or not?

ugh same here.

Just opened my copy and the cards are in English.

("i should just be thankful, i should just be thankful, i should just be thankful, i should just be thankful")

And that is all I have to say on the matter.

That's the 2nd comfirmation I've had of those in the US getting an English copy. Looks like it might be just European backers who have gotten the shaft here...

edit: nevermind. apparently it's it's more random than that, as some people in europe who wanted german got english. I don't remember every being able to specify English or German when I did the survey...

Also, it's stated in another thread that Queen has said they'll fix this, though I don't know where they said it or how they offered to...

edit edit: apparently this was stated to someone by Queen through the KS contact system, so anyone else having the problem, definitely go to KS and contact Queen that way!

That was me and I got a reply from "Queen Games"/"Nikki QG-US" saying that the cards should have been in English and that they'd look into it.

I wouldn't want to unshrink my copy. I've played the game and decided it'd be best to trade it away. Is there any way I can tell if I have German or English cards without taking out the shrink? As far as I can tell, I received the 2008 multi-language edition.

Cards in German here. I definitely wanted the English cards. Should just be a matter of QG sending me the deck of English cards.

My copy was luckily English. So thankful not to be involved in this mix up.
