Inca Empire is essentially the same game as Tahuantinsuyu. Changes that have been made include language independent artwork, corrections or clarifications of rules, a slight alteration to the 4-player board, and the inclusion of a different 3-player board. The sticks have simply replaced the crayon aspect of the game. There will be some new Sun Event cards given out at Essen.
italic part added by the editor to clarify, as the original qoute was a reaction to that same statement.
It's in the db now as Funfair I don't get this, it's only published as Rummelplatz, so why is it listed under Funfair? edit: I submitted a correction and it has been fixed!

We would like to celebrate our 15th anniversary together with YOU at SPIEL´10 in Essen. As a reknown publisher of highly acclaimed games we will celebrate this event with a special game. Starting with the Nuremberg Toy Fair we will furnish you with tasty bits of information in our blog:
Ask a question and you sometimes get a great answer.
How do you do a give away for a trick taking game?
Sean Ross (I), designer of Haggis, suggested that we do a limited edition of special face cards for Haggis. For those not in the know, Haggis gives each player 3 face cards that can be used as normal (ranked cards), as wild cards or as bombs. This really makes every hand very tense, as you are always at risk of being bombed and potentially losing control.
because every player gets a face card, they are kept face up (and in fact are double sided to help seperate them after a hand is done).
So for Essen I'll commission a special edition of the face cards, and give away one set with each game so the owner gets to play with these special face cards.
Asmodee will offer 777 limited editions of 7 Wonders. These specials will come with a Goodie, the 8th world wonder Manneken Pis at Brussels and its wonder card + 1 ex-ludis by Antoine Bauza and Miguel Coimbra.
Free promo cards at the fair that feature the eight characters.
This new edition of Junkyard Races is far better than the original. It is now for up to 8 Players, It has two race tracks one on ether side of the board, Collecting parts is no longer done by luck, you now buy the parts when stopped in the pit stops. The parts have been revised and some cards have two abilities. You now have limited storage on your Kart so you must use the traps, fuel and weapons you find if you what to collect any more. And best of all the production values are very nice, in keeping with what you would expect from Gen42 Games.
We will be giving out free promo cards at the fair that feature the eight characters.
