Spotting the Difference i.e. with or without Rivers I,

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Carcassonne Board Game (Toy)
To get the version with The River I (well worth having and no longer possible to buy separately now anyway), you need to purchase the new version by Zman Games (not the old by Rio Grande although their very old versions did include The River I too). The box and artwork is largely the same, the only differences being that Zman's logo replaces Rio Grande's at the bottom of the front of the box, 'Includes The River' is stencilled into the arch entering town and the thief next to the knight on the Rio Grande box has been replaced by a shifty-looking lady, the thief himself having been minimised to hide in the bushes to the left.
Well worth purchasing this game - initially seems expensive for what you get but very resilient and addictive, with plenty of add-ons available and playable at different levels (seriously or idly over a chat) and with very young children as well as adults alone.
