I just wanted to note for those looking into the game - the English release is different than Steffen-Spiele version.

- In the FoxMind version that are 36 tiles (compared to 48).

- Also FoxMind version players only get a max of 3 red markers (compared to SS - which you divide markers evenly. So in a 2 player game you get 6)

- Another difference - is that in the FoxMind version you can only place a red marker (smartie) when you stack tiles on the actual tile you stack - while in the Steffen-Spiele there is no such restriction (you can place on bottom row).

Just a few things i noticed glancing at rules. Thought I share.

Could someone describe the tiles - or better, send an image?

If I had to guess, I'd say there's only 9 types of tiles (in the FoxMind version at least), each repeating 4 times:
00 00 00 00
01 02 11 22

11 11 11
10 12 22

22 22
20 21

Above 0, 1 and 2 are the different colors.
So no tile has all 3 colors.
What about the SS version?

I am confused about this too.

I have the FoxMind version, and I can't find a reference to scoring the neutral chocolate colour in a two player game.

The description on here (BGG) states the following:

BGG Description wrote:
but with two or four players, the unused color has an additional play element, with surrounded groups of the neutral color scoring for the player or team who touches them most.


Can someone help me understand how this rule works, and why it isn't included in the FoxMind edition?

Thanks in advance :-)

It's quite well explained here (with a picture): http://www.steffen-spiele.de/fileadmin/Spiele/PDFs/Schokoly_...
