In our last game we ran out of tower levels (German: "turmteile/stockwerke") of one colour. We weren't sure they are meant to be limited by 16 as included in the game.
Anyone?

That's an interesting question.

I didn't encounter this in my single 2-player game, but now that you mention it there are 8 towers possible in each colour. If every tower reached it's maximum height of 4, then 32 tower pieces would be required for each colour, but only 16 are provided.

I can only assume that the tower pieces must be deliberately limited, and recognising when the supply is running short is part of what players have to watch out for.

Some sort of official answer would be nice though - or at least could someone point out if something is in the German rules but missing from the unofficial English translation?

I asked Hans im Glück and got a fast answer:

"they are limited. In numbers of levels (up to max. 4) and in the
complete numbers. When they are finished no one can built one..."

That's clear!

I don't think I missed anything in the rules, so its good to get a definite answer.
Our copy of the game has arrived today and unfortunately our tower levels are even more limited - no black tower pieces at all! Hopefully Hans im Glück will again be as quick to respond.

No, you didn't miss it. I learned the game from the original German rules which do not mention it either.

I hope you got your tower pieces since. I bought Wikinger some weeks ago and had one yellow meeple missing. They were not reluctant to send it to me; it arrived just this week.
