Product Description

Karl-Heinz Schmiel's fast paced game Extrablatt available in an international version as Special Edition. This edition includes all-new hilarious headlines in English, French, German, Dutch, Italian and Spanish and all new artwork by Mike Doyle.

In Special Edition, players take on the role of editors of a major newspaper, choosing stories of various general types (politics, sports, entertainment, etc.) to run in their respective newspapers. Hilarious headlines stream in on the fax machine and it is up to you to decide which ones to run with. How big should the article be? Is it worthy of the front page? Will competing newspapers run the same article? Should you place an advertisement in your competitor's paper to take up valuable space? While making these decisions, the clock is running! The print deadline is drawing near and you have to get your finished paper done in time for printing. Will your newspaper have the largest circulation?

Two factors determine a story's worth: timing and size. The timing is relevant because the later in the game the story is run the more points it's potentially worth. But in this game (as in the real world) size is important, because only the biggest story of any given headline will score.
