Amazon is showing this back in stock but how do I ensure that this is the second edition?

What's the difference between first and second edition?

The staff cards will be in English and have numbering to make it easier to look up their abilities.

Well, if you do pay through the nose now, you won't get the revised rulebook or the revised staff cards with English and numbering and stuff.

Wait, did I just say that out loud?...

Oh, that's awesome! It's so hard to read their names in that font sometimes. I'm glad i didn't buy the copy i saw the other day now.

I prefer to think of my first printing copy as more immersively thematic. whistle

While I agree that the font was hard to read, this did not detract me while playing and wouldn't stop me form buying the first printing.

At this point, I'd be REALLY surprised if there are any 1st edition laying around anywhere (especially on Amazon, where new GAHs were commanding a premium). You can tell from the copyright date on the back cover (2015-2016), but I'd buy with confidence.

I agree the difference isn't a big deal. After one game me and my wife didn't need to look anything up, the iconography is very good

Can you post an image from a card, so we can see the chances in layout?

Thanks.

Thanks

Is the rulebook of the second edition available to downloading in some site?

I hoped to have it up, but the basic file is too large for our website. I'm working on getting a reduced-size version (yes, I know there's a setting in Acrobat; we require a more aggressive solution). Sorry for the delay!

Amazon has had it for a week now, but still nothing at OLGS or FLGS. What gives? Did Amazon receive a special arrangement, or are the distributors just slow moving this title down the food chain?

I assume slow is the issue. There was no special consideration for Amazon; they may have put things up with confirmation of distributor shipping, rather than physical receipt of the games. It should be widely available very very soon.

Thanks Alex. I don't mean to be impatient. I am just hoping to get this one to the table with some of my friends before all the fresh Essen games start arriving. Can't wait!

The components in the game are decent quality. The cardboard stock is solid and the cards are good. The box also contains 14 dice. The artwork is well done and the iconography is clear once you learn from the book what all the symbols mean.

I think it is a fair price for a very good game.

Unfortunately you were wrong then and still now, because my newly arrived shoulda-been-a-second-edition from big-mainstream-game-store is a first edition. Frustrating. I wish that Mayfair would at least offer a run of the second edition cards for sale.
