Do I need to be concerned about which version I get? What are the differences between the versions? And, if I get a "foreign" version, do I need to worry about cards not being in English?

I can't speak to the various differences that may exist, but I can say that the cards have no words on them, just numbers.

You asked the question before I could! I've decided to get this game but can't decide which version to get...

Category 5 has rules in English. Looks like flimsy packaging. Art on the cards is a little overproduced, but is clear and easy to read. $10 Cdn online.

6 Nimmt! has rules in German, but of course you can print out the English rules. Nice tin case. Art is clean, but a little chaotic and some people I've shown pictures to find it hard to read. $13 Cdn online.

I like the look of the 6 Nimmt! cards myself, but other people I've shown images to all prefer the look of Cat5.

How does the card size and quality compare? Are they equivalent, or is one of higher quality than the other, does anyone know?

well i have both version. you can definitely get german version w/o any language problem, it is a card game so all you need is english rules which you can get on bgg, so no problem there whatsoever. and it is so easy you play it once you know the rules, no need to read it over and over again while learning.

quality qise, of course tin can is better than paper box. and i do like the amigo tin can version much better too. in US cat 5 is 1/2 the price as 6nimmit, but i think for the box it is worth it. also i think the german version card quality is better too. it's softwer but still coated so it is easy to shuffle and lasting.

The expansion cards from Amigo are only compatible with the Amigo tin can version (just in case you want to get them too!)

I've only personally seen the English version called Category 5.
The cards are nice linen finish, but the tuck-box seems cheap.

If I had my druthers, I'd get the one that comes in a tin.

I like the card art on the Category 5 edition. The colors really help distinguish the different values at a glance.

I bought the Amigo german version this summer in the Jubilee edition tin box. Card quality is very good and the box is luxurious! I found the rules here when I came back and really enjoy the game. Get the tin if you can.
