I've been on the lookout for the Dutch version of Stone Age (named Stenen Tijdperk). Sadly, it's out of print and the online shops that still carry it charge a bit much for my taste.

So I looked online if there's any news for a reprint. And see what I found. There will be a reprint, and a localization of the expansion.

Now, this was to be expected. But the good news is...

It's not named "Style is the Goal" or "Stijl is het Doel"! It simply called "Talisman" (or that's what the rumours say, at least).


www.bordspel.com, look for header titled 10-01-12: nieuws van 999 Games

Lucky you! It would seem English versions are stuck with the horrible horrid insipid name...

Indeed it is – I've uploaded the cover here.

As noted on the 999 Games news page, the expansion is due out March 2012, along with a reprint of the base game. I've added the release date for all the new upcoming titles from 999 Games to Gone Cardboard.

Does anyone know if there will be a reprint of the Dutch version?

I seem to remember I read something about a reprint, but can't find any info anymore.

I have the Dutch base game, but can't find the Dutch expansion anywhere.

If I would purchase the German or English edition, are there any components (cards/tiles/etc) with German or English text on them?

I bought the German edition. There is no text whatsoever. Only the title on the box is German, the rest is perfectly compatible.

Except for the rules. Are the Dutch rules available online, perhaps as a PDF? My German is horrible. laugh
