Ever since Dutch publisher 999 Games announced the El Grande Big Box in Europe, there has been much speculation as to whether this long-awaited reprint would get U.S. distribution. W. Eric Martin, over on BoardGameGeek, provided the answer to that question today.
“Z-Man Games has confirmed to me that it will release El Grande Big Box in English in 2015.”This confirmation that Z-Man Games will be handing American distribution is wonderful news for many board game fans who view El Grande as the founders of the area control mechanic that’s so prevalent today. The big box edition, which coincides with the games 20th anniversary, purports to contain all official expansion materials including:
- Grand Inquisitor & Colonies
- King & Intrigue
- King & Intrigue: Player's Edition
- King & Intrigue: Special Cards
