As a teacher I take my year 10 pupils (15 years old) out to Cracow in Poland every year in order to visit Auschwitz.

I got back last night and, as usual, the students had a challenging and worthwhile time (many of them bought Primo Levi books whilst out there which pretty much justifies the trip in my opinion!)

On to matters far more mundane - I also picked up a copy of this intriguing-looking game for £13!!!!! AND I didn't have to queue for it!!!

Now all I need to do is to put the English stickers onto the cards in order to Anglicise it for play. Does anyone have any advice on this? At a first glance in the box it all looks rather complicated as to which sticker should go where. All help gratefully received.

No it's actually very simple, although scary looking at first!

There is some teeny text in the sticker sheers with arrows. These are the card names. Sort the cards by type; there will be one I'm each (5?) colour. Then find the respective title/matching image on the sticker sheet and replace top and bottom. Line the stickers up just below the horizontal lines on the card. They come out very well.

Enjoy.

It is a great fun game.
I got some help from this file. The translations are not identical but helpful enough.
Next to that you will find the persons on the sticker sheets to match the cards.
Be aware that the font color, not the background color, matches the card color. I initially made a mistake with yellow and brown.

I used the little pictures next to each set to aid me. Although I didn't look closely enough and mixed up the extra delivery, and short delivery sets. Which makes my set unique if nothing else !!

Apart from having matching pictures, it really doesn't matter where you stick them, as long as everyone has a full set !

Enjoy the game.

Shouldn't the English PnP be helpful as reference? I'm still waiting (not queueing!) for my copy...

Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colours. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving. Pratchett

If you need to consult a Polish native as what goes where, feel welcome to write me. I own the first edition of Kolejka, so all can be checked on the original design.

I hope you will enjoy this wicked game!

Thumbed for the story of the school children buying Primo Levi books.

The game sounds intriguing as well.

I haven't been able to find an English PnP version. Where could I get it?

Sorry, I don't know.

I bought mine in Poland and it came equipped with stickers and rulebooks to facilitate play in about six languages!!

I hope you get hold of a copy - it's a little gem...
