    2017 definitely IMO as it includes all of the expansion decks ever released, which is a lot of extra cards.

    Hello Geeks! It's been a while since I last posted, so I guess I owe you an update on the past two months while I was gone.

    I just got into Pokemon in that gap of time. I thought I swore off TCGs for good, but apparently that's not the case. I blame it on a mix of nostalgia and (possibly) endorphin-release, building decks and opening packs. You know how satisfying those can be. Pulling packs are still exciting!

    I'm trying to approach this as casually as I can, so I'm not going to sink everything in just yet. I even put certain restrictions for myself, including avoiding random pack pulls, buying boxes and singles only, and capping the monthly budget to just around P3,000.00 ($60.00).

    My new collection is pretty small and consists of a few things:
    - Custom Golduck Budget Deck (For Expanded)
    - 1x Steel Sun Theme Deck (disassembled)
    - 1x Hidden Moon Theme Deck (disassembled, reconstructed for Standard)
    - 1x Legends of Alola Lunala Tin (includes a Lunala GX promo card and 4 booster packs)
    - 1x Snorlax GX Box (Includes promo Snorlax GX and a box exclusive Snorlax. It also comes with 4 booster packs. Thanks, Gaming Library!)
    - 1x Lugia Legendary Battle Deck (in the editing line, possibly to be combined with a duplicate copy)
    - 1x Shiny Mega Gyarados Playmat

    It looks like a lot, but there aren't that much compared to the others in the community. I'm looking forward to expanding my collection (TO AN EXTENT) and see where this will go.

    As for my collection, I have been trying my best to cut down on games I haven't been playing. I have a few ones up for sale, but it may take a while before I actually get to sell them. (They Who Were 8, anyone? I have an extra copy!)

    The only notable board game related-purchases I have made are for friends and a copy of Adventure Time Card Wars Fionna vs. Cake and a 36-set of d6s from Chessex (for Warhammer, of course.) I also found my way to a copy of the International Tabletop Day Fluxx Expansion Pack, but my copy of Cthulhu Fluxx has yet to come back to me.

    I have spent a lot of time playing app-based board games like Onirim, Jaipur, and this app-only game Age of Rivals. It basically is 7 Wonders if you add a deckbuilding aspect to it. I haven't been using my iPad as much, so my games there are just...there. I will charge it eventually, because I do miss Le Havre (I don't have a physical copy.)

    I'm trying to keep this relatively short because I have a lot to talk about, including a few rounds of freelance guru-ing and a new Pokemon casuals project I'm trying to make into a thing, but those can wait after I catch my breath. Here's something just to announce to the world that I'm still alive.


    ....and I am? Ahaha. See you guys later, DFTBA

    I don't know different about 2 version. Can you tell me some information .

    There doesn't appear to be any reason to buy the older version, unless you can get it substantially cheaper and that is an important factor to you.

    I have the old edition, and it's great. The new edition is great. Buy which ever is cheapest. If it's a tie, get the new one! (More cards, although I think that's unnecessary)

    Edit: For clarification, I have the Lookout Australian edition

    I got this game in a math trade last year. This is the first time i heard of the error on the board lol. I have the grand hameau cards but i was wondering if there is a way to get the extras in the newer edition.

    My only regret with this game is that i didnt discover it back when kt was first released!

    Not that many - and they are only special buildings which you only pick 6 random ones for each game.

    Unless you play Le Havre so many times that you get bored of seeing the special buildings that come with the base game, there isn't really any reason to get it just for the expansion.

    I think I am right in saying the base game has 36 special buildings and the expansions come to a total of 46 special buildings, so if that is not considered "that many", it is still at least "quite a few".

    I agree entirely that you only see a few special buildings each time so would need to play a lot before you need the expansion buildings for variety.

    Given how often the length of the game allows me time to play it, I can see I probably won't ever get bored of the base game buildings. For me though that misses the point, I want the expansion buildings just because they are there.

    For example, I have saw this special building when I was flicking through and would love to grab it, but realise it could be some time ... Worker's Cottages

    You did forget that the new edition also contains all the special buildings from the Le Grand Hameau expansion which weren't included in the first LH editions.

    On Mini podcast, I often hear this game referred to as 'La Havre', with an 'a' instead of an 'e'. Of course the name is fairly hard for English speakers to pronounce, but I often hear people getting the later part, with the strange French are and such, fairly close to correct, while getting the article wrong. Any theories as to why?

    I just call this game "Oswald."

    Well, if you want to get down to nit picky phonetics, I usually pronounce it "L'Hav", so I am using neither the "La" or "Le" in the pronounciation. I suspect the problem is that when you contract Le with an H that it creates something that sounds closer to La than Le, but it really somewhere in the middle of the two. Of course, I got a barely passable C when I took French at university, so I will easily cave in if someone wants to say I'm wrong here.

    Ahh, yes. If the city was founded by the Cobblepot family, it would certainly change the tone of the game.

    I would suspect that many people in the US are more used to pronouncing Spanish words than French, particularly in California, Texas, and the Southwest (Las Vegas, Las Cruces, and really people often pronounce 'Los Angeles' as 'Las Angeles') , so it's pretty easy to slide from "Le" to "La". If the podcasters were from Louisiana or Alabama, I expect they'd be closer.

    Well, possibly correcting my self in my own thread, its interesting to note here: https://forvo.com/word/le_havre/ to me it sounds like they are saying Loo-Avre

    I'm still annoyed that people don't say El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles de Porciúncula any more. I blame twitter.
