I noticed this game's description mentions the set containing 40 cards, yet the online rule book on the Repos site, as well as images here suggest it's actually 41; with 4 guilds instead of 3.

Is the 41-card pack a second edition?

How can I tell the difference between the two on the shelf?

(For example: Does the back of the box indicate "41 cards" or show an image of the 4th guild? Does the box have awards on the cover as do the subsequent editions of the base game?)

I plan on buying both the base game and the expansion later this week and I'd obviously like to try and get the one with more cards.

EDIT: I found an image of the back of the box, which shows the 4th guild. I'll keep an eye out for that.

There are 36 leaders and 4 guilds. However, there is also a "blank" leader that you can add your own abilities. How this card is counted probably determines whether they advertise the 40 or 41 cards.

But I believe all editions have 41 cards, though only 40 are playable as printed.

You're forgetting about the new Wonder card however:



The back of the box lists 36 Leader cards, 4 Guild cards, 1 Wonder card, and 1 blank Leader card. 42 in total.

So it's actually 42. All I know, is I have 4 guilds. I also don't know of a 2nd edition or 2nd printing on these. So I think it I safe to assume the description that was typed in the database was in error.

Could it be that you are counting the Stevie Wonder promo card that was a Spielbox magazine freebie?

No, that just adds to the mix making it 43 total cards for the expansion.
