other designs/editions of gang of four Sat, 28 October 2006 08:42
i'm new here and glad to find the website, but i hate the new designs of the card game. can anyone tell me where to get the older version? instead of just numbers and a dragon, it was based off of the military ranking. so it had privates and generals for pictures on it. it just made more sense to do it that way because the game is actually based off of that theme. you really can't google the version, so unless you actually have the old version this will be pretty hard to find, but thank you to the person who does help me.

Guess you're in the wrong section of the DoW forums...
Now the question is: when will this message be relocated?

P.S. I'm sorry: I can't answer to your original question!

Hey I know exactly what you're talking about. I played this game many years ago with the deck you're talking about that has the chairman, generals, farmers, etc. I prefer that version by far because it does make more sense since it's the "#1 game in asia" or whatever DOW claims it is and about ranking and the power of the people. Well, without getting into a political discussion, I'll say that I happened on this website looking for another package of the original version several years ago and was ecstatic I could play my favorite game with different people online. I also googled it and turned up nothing. Even the site I originally ordered my game from was no longer in existence. I wound up looking on ebay for several weeks and found someone selling it. I bought several packs so that I would have a lifetime supply Rolling Eyes. I'm afraid that is your best chance of getting what you want. Currently there are none auctioning on ebay but if you really want it, keep checking ebay. Oh and the decks I got weren't even the same colors as the first deck I played with. (red, yellow, and green rather than red, yellow, blue) So any DOW people reading this, please consider making and marketing the original style. We like it better and it makes more sense. The strategy is also different with the ranked phoenixes!! While I'm on a roll, just 'cause it's a chinese game doesn't mean you need to stick a dragon in there.

The version you are referring to is the Dargaud (French) published edition that is no longer in print. I've linked to two sample images from that edition - note the 'S' cards, same as the the "Phoenix" cards, do not have a different color - in the original game design, they didn't have the property of color:

peapicker, that is fantastic! I've never seen that version before. Where can that be found now that it is out of print? Same with the English older version (not made by DoW)? If you know of any place, please post in this thread.
