I've got the version without the wooden ark, and am a bit jealous now ;)
Where did you get it from if I may ask?

On eBay from the US. You can see the difference only on the backside where the wooden ark is shown. But you should always request.
The wooden ark is only contained in the 1st edition of the english game.

Of course, but it is a rare game. The design of the ark is not the best

Only a day short of 2 months later, but worth it! Order from SpielMaterial:



Boats and Blue Dragon (Leviathan) for the various sea fan expansions, and boar resource tokens for the Hunting Forest fan expansion. I didn't realize the boars would be so big...  :o

[Edit]: Perhaps a "Gods of the Forest" Ghibli-esque expansion is in order?  ;)

Is Meeplesource not an option for you?

It is, and I have ordered from them as well. My one complaint about meeplesource is that their bits and meeples aren't sealed in any way. Some of the ones I have gotten already have chipped paint  :-\

One of these days, I will spray them all with some polyurethane.

The same happened to me... It is not precisely cheap and you get chipped pieces or faulty meeples...  :o

Awesome picture Brickmaster, I've been tempted by those boats for quite some time.  I love spielematerials's produce.

Funny you and Meepledrone said about MeepleSource's components:

Over the Easter weekend, I made some meeple art (it's tradition).  You can find them on twitter #meepleart.
I was laying some bright orange meeple, that I got from meeple source, onto a large black fabric mouse mat and noticed the same thing.
There were tiny orange wood splinters that were coming off the edges of the meeple when I moved them over the fabric surface.
You'd probably not notice them in normal use, but adjusting the meeple on the mousemat was difficult.... getting the splinters out was quite hard too because they were so small.

I've not had this issue with Spielematerial or Cundco meeple  :(y)

You can see the defective orange meeple I got from Meeplesource here at the bottom. I also received cracked meeples and cubes. So you have to order extra ones to cope with these issues.
