I received this press release from Hans im Glück:
The crowdfunding of Saint Petersburg starts at 21st March 2014. Publisher Hans im Glück dedicates eight cards to outstanding members of the international board game community. Voting starts now.
In three weeks, the new Saint Petersburg project is going to start at the european crowdfunding site Spieleschmiede.de. The game is a re-release of the classic board game with the same name from the publisher Hans im Glück. Based on numerous fan requests the company starts its first crowdfunding project. The new edition will feature components for a fifth player, a new game phase as well as redesigned artwork and rulebook. The fans could already vote the new color of the cover, which will be teal (see picture). Now they can decide the appearance of eight ‘aristocrats’ from the game.
