Hello!

Just received what I think is a copy of the 5th printing (mainly because previous printings sold out so quickly). Nothing on the box indicated edition/printing, but the rule book has on the inside cover "3rd Printing with some modifications."

What are the "modifications"? Is it the player aids with Milestones and Career Paths on them? Anything else? Just curious.

Cheers,
Michael

Just this - nothing was changed in the 5th (or 4th) printing.

Cheers! I'm really impressed how quickly the 5th printing appeared in stores--after the 4th disappeared to preorders, I wasn't sure if I'd be able to get a copy.

Just curious - when did you order your game? I ordered mine in early June and was hoping to make the fifth edition, but I haven't heard anything about shipping.

I'm waiting too, order placed in April. I don't think they send notifications, but I'm encouraged by this from splottershop.com:

I had the fifth edition on email notification at Boardgameguru.co.uk. As soon as I received the email--I was lucky, I checked at just the right time--I placed the order. It sold out pretty quickly...
