I don't have 20th anniv yet, but that may well go with the rest of the tiles. I will put them in attic for a while and then make a final decision.

Definitely nothing wrong with the community. I have no issue with HIG. Just me.

HiG don't want your money. They sold the license to Z-Man for exclusive UK distribution.

What Z-Man do with their license isn't really HiGs concern.

If you want to give HiG some money you can buy the German edition from them.


Edit:

And why shouldnt the Japanese have it already?  The regional publisher, Mobius Games, owns the rights for production and distribution in Japan. They did the work, they secured production at a factory, they shipped the products across Japan. They've advertised and marketed it effectively.


Blaming HiG for the issues of Z-Man is unreasonable in my opinion. It's well documented that factory slots, raw materials, international shipping, is expensive and difficult at the moment.

Consider for a minute that the UK receives Z-Man products from the USA, so it's hit twice.  There's little to no incentive for HiG to consider a new UK partner now Brexit has occurred, and from their perspective they won't get more out of it than they already have with Z-Man.
