Are there two different shaped boxes for the same game or is one revised from the other version?

If there are differences between the two, is there an upgrade pack?

Thanks!

The narrow smaller box is from The Game Crafter. These were used as:

RUSH copies of the game from the kickstarter campaign.
Demo copies of the game shipped to game reviewers.
Beta copies of the game given out to winners of events at cons.

I would encourage you to pick up the larger box! Which is the only one you should find on the market.

Cheers!

Jonathon

I already have the narrow box, hence the question.

There not an upgrade pack.
If you have a rush copy then the only difference in gameplay is you don't have the three custom cards from top tier backers. Other then that the only difference is the quality of the components.

If you have a beta copy then there's a lot of things that had changed and you'd need to pick up the retail version.

Does that answer your question?

Does it say Beta on the box?
-> Beta

Does it have Boss Reward cards like Guardian Headband and no Beta on the cover?
-> Alpha

Does it have a 3 energy cost Caterpillar?
-> Rush
