I am a player who has played the Norwegian expansion many times offline, and I would love to be involved in the testing!
https://boardgamearena.com/forum/viewto ... 02#p171702 but it has pretty steep requirements. I think a bit too steep. I was somehow a guru til like a week ago. And I still couldn't.

the link only semi works. it's second from the bottom page 5.

I asked about this in the other thread, but probably should have done it here: What about the new rule about no longer drawing a single occupation card but drawing two and selecting one? Can this also be an option for the base game only? (Unless I'm remember completely wrong, Uwe did say that's how it should have been from the very beginning, so shouldn't it be treated as a rules errata? In the very least as an option that can be enabled or disabled?)

This would need a BGG citation and consultation with the publisher, since that is a very major change.

You are likely misremembering this. All I can find on BGG is this collection of house rules under variants: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/252213 ... luck-based

No, it was from a Rahdo run-through of the Norwegians expansion, I remember that much. But it seems that I was misunderstanding what Rahdo was saying, that the rule correction was only applying for the expansion (but it missed the rulebook printing)...

(the other part that I was misremembering and mixing up with it was the ability to jettison occupation cards for points: https://www.youtube.com/embed/k18Fb8UfB ... 2&end=1009 )

...but that being said, his source was from designer Gernot Köpke comment in a BGG thread:

https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/184307 ... 1#38628011

where the draw 2, keep 1 errata is apparently supposed to become official for all versions by the time of the even-then-upcoming (2021) "Danes" expansion, which we'll hopefully see by 2025, I guess.
