Arxon's german edition.

There exist at least four different subversions which have slightly different packagings. Some bear the year 1980, others 1981. All were produced in Hungary. Some carry the "Spiel des Jahres"-sticker on the package. Most package carry a label "Arxon" at the top, fewer an "Ideal"-sticker and very few "politoys".

Fascinatingly this version of the package gives a different number compared with the others. "43 billionen" in german equals 43*10^12. The english packages read "3 billions" = 3*10^9. The true number of permutations roughly equals 43*10^18. So the german version is closer but still misses 6 magnitudes.

According to a piece of a contemporary newspaper its original price was 24.80 Deutsche Mark.
