Here I Stand 500th Anniversary Upgrade Kit

Price: $35.00

NOTE: Here I Stand was due for a reprint in 2017, but with October 31, 2017 being the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther's posting of his 95 Theses, Ed Beach and his team of Here I Stand enthusiasts have put together a series of enhancements to the original game that transform this reprint into a deluxe 500th anniversary treatment.

Enhancements include:

  • 6 brand new cards added to the deck, including Thomas More, Thomas Cromwell, Rough Wooing, and Imperial Coronation.
  • Revisions to over 15 existing cards including Copernicus, Master of Italy, and Machiavelli to allow for more exciting in-game play and additional possibilities for diplomatic deals.
  • A new Chateau construction table is now used to resolve France's Patron of the Arts home card plays.
  • Several Virgin Queen rule updates are incorporated back into Here I Stand, affecting minor power activation, piracy, space trading, and foreign wars.

    This update kit is designed for owners of the 1st or 2nd printings of Here I Stand who don't want an entire new game, but would like to only update their game with the new components. This upgrade kit includes:

  • new card decks
  • a card of updated charts,
  • six new power cards,
  • a half sheet of new counters
  • the new rules and scenario books.

    We hope you enjoy this cool new edition of Here I Stand via either the full new boxed game or the upgrade kit!

    In general is a good product. However it has an important flaw IMHO. Diplomacy and Turn Tracks should come separated allowing to be placed on top of the original ones. Now you have to cut the card, or look for more room on the table to place them, which is not very convenient.

    Tough forum, James? You rated the wrong product and stated as much! As for me, it's a great update to an already great game, a nice opion for owners of the old editions ... but pricey. 1* due to cost.

    I can't really rate this until I get it into my hands, so the above rating is based on the Second Edition and I will adjust it later. (0 people found your comment helpful, 9 did not)... Tough Forum.
