Probably a good one to wait for the translation on. I have the German one and there is a bit of work to do to get it to a state where it can be easily played in English...

Now I have to race to play it before the English version arrives.

Oh and if anyone from Z-Man games is reading please get some extra rulebooks done up so I can buy one off you

The German version is literally sold out.
That's why we do a bi-lingual edition with Z-man games.

I'm looking forward to this one... Our group played kvn299's well done pasted up version and I enjoyed it quite a bit. I haven't seen much of it since then, though.

I didn't seem to have any trouble with the german version. It IS a bit of work doing the paste-ups though so if you can wait, I'd wait.

The playing material will be the same (bilingual).

Only the cover and the rules are german or english.

Well, no big changes in design, but many ideas posted in this forum (and others) were taken over - let's take tha artifact cards that now show he icon of toad or raven, depending on which one the count for.
All cards are bilingual now, as well as the Sentinels.
You can now identify 6 and 9, and the gemstone symbol is on both sides of the card.
The player boards are printed on both sides now - one in German, one in English. The starting hand size is colored, as is the starting track. We also printed the amount of dust and cards you get at set-up on there.
Also the main board got some more symbols - you should see now what you get if you advance on which track. And so on.

There are 2 main functional changes.
One is to make the Druid mor competitive. That player can get exactly one ruby already at level 3 of his starting track. For rubynumer 2-5, he still needs to get to level 4 first, as do all other players for rubies 1-5.
The other one makes the Knowledge of the 9 Sages a little weaker.
If you advance on this track and get the 2 cards, you have to check if you are able to get cards of that color by any other means (artifacts or gemstones). If not, you have to trade in the cards you just drew for magic dust. So you don't lose any money, but hand size capacity for one turn, thus making it harder to save everything for a big turn.

Both rule changes are printed in italics in the new rulebook. Yoou don't need to play them, though we highly recommend it.

Just letting everyone know that we started shipping Scepter to distributors yesterday. This means it should hit stores around June 22-23.

We will also have them for sale at Origins.

Thanks,
