My comment was merely facetious Decar, born out of mild frustration (don't believe I'm alone there) and a suspicion that the English language version probably sells more than the Japanese language version.  (Curious business decision is all, nothing to do with entitlement.) I did not feel need to be pedantic with it too.

HiG already get plenty of my money through Cundco.

I am aware of the distribution licences, but know/care little for the details of how they work, however I respectfully disagree that Z-Mans lack of progress is entirely irrelevant to HiG. It's HiG's game, HiG's name is on the box too and I'm fairly certain that, for anybody that gives it any attention, most Carc owners would consider themselves customers of HiG at least as much as customers of the individual publishers..

I seriously doubt that Z-Man pay twice for international shipping and import taxes rather than having products intended for U.K. sent directly to a U.K. (or at least an E.U.) distribution centre.  If they do then more fool them, although that would happen ultimately at our expense of course.  :-\

Anyway just now seen that a limited number of English version of 20th Anniversary Edition now available at Cundco for limited time.  No sign of '21 tile yet though.

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.

I'm slightly surprised, if above is correct, that each regional publisher would have to arrange for all their own printing, shipping etc. Wouldn't it make sense for a single production facility to print the tile sheets for all since they're language independent (maybe apart from a few with different backs)? Then the question is whether they (or someone else) produce and/or collate all the other components.

Just saw that the Z-man website (via the Asmodee link) in the US is now giving 11/12/21 as a date for the English version of the Anniversary Edition.  Hope this isn't pushed back again and that all of us who've been waiting can get one soon!

I'll believe it when I see it but I got a "Your order has been dispatched" from Zatu Games this morning for the order I placed at the end of April this year.   Let's wait and see.

Mine is in a bundle of items for Xmas. I have waited 7 months, no harm adding 1 more and I will see the new tiles after I have had some Turkey.
