    Very happy to see this! Already pre-ordered, can’t wait!

    I’m surprised you didn’t post pictures of the train cards too — that’s where the gorgeous art really shines. Beautiful snow-covered winter trains! I own this game (import, non-English version) and I love the art and I love how it plays too.

    That is great news. I already have one of the previous editions, so would there be a way to order just the english rules (I know they are available elsewhere, I just like it when things match)

    Not that I care one way or the other, but didn’t DOW assure everyone they would never print this in English or make it available outside the regions represented on the board?

    It seems to me that a lot of people that thought they were getting an exclusive copy of their home nation, and those who paid a lot of money to get this imported, might be upset.

    I am just curious to know why DOW changed their mind on this one. (Besides the obvious answer of they have a game and can make money on it).

    Yes, they did say that the game would not ever be made available in the US and so loads of people spent huge gobs of cash buying imported copies via ebay.

    extremely dissapointed in this decision, as one of the few how paid more for this upon their statement never to be released. They should at least retheme, remake not just a language difference, extremely dissapointed and an absoultely boneheaded decision sure to alienate more than please.

    In a DOW blog, they left open the possibility of a worldwide release. See this link…


    In this same link, DOW also explained that one reason for limiting the release of Nordic involved the fact that Nordic’s gameplay was too close to the Swiss expansion (which was about to be released at the time), and they feared that having both maps at the same time would saturate the market.

    I don’t think there was ill intent here by DOW. I am just glad they are providing the english version.

  8. ColtsFan76 says:

    Funny how the comments at the time made it sound like this was an exclusive and would remain so. But seeing the old blog post proves otherwise.

    I wish that DOW would release these as expansion packs as well similar to the Switzerland map. I have no need for a complete game that is fairly similar to the ones I have. But if it was a reduced price for just the board, the destination tickets, and any additional pieces (for Europe and Maklin), I would buy the rest of them. I don’t need the revised art on the train cards or the new train colors; I’d rather just reuse what I can of the base game and have the new boards for variety.
