This Deluxe edition of the classic game for 2 to 6 players includes both original and updated rules, new hand-painted artwork, an oversized board, 56 wooden playing pieces, 100 fully illustrated cards, a 32-page history book, and unique replicas of artefacts from the prison.

Now it's back. I've got it for my son's christmas present.
I'm not a games player, but this game was fantastic. We'd spend hours each Sunday having a laugh and trying to outwit each other. I'm looking forward to trying to persuade my son that this is better than anything that needs a controller to play with.
Wish me luck.
Thankfully, no. Certain rules have been 'tweeked' but only in order to clarify them, or improve the way they work within the game. A turn counter has been added to the outside edge of the board, but players can ignore this and still play for a set time limit if preferred. In fact the original rules are included in the new rulebook, so players can still use them if they wish. Design wise, the board now has a more modern '3D' look to it, but the layout representing the interior of Colditz is exactly the same. Similarly, the cards used in the game are more photographic in appearance, but otherwise the same. All this has been done in full consultation with Brian Degas, the game's surviving designer. Osprey have retained the same wooden, coloured playing pieces - so much nicer to use than cheap plastic things.Read more ›
