I just bought Descent 2nd Edition however I have not yet opened the game.

The reason I ask is because on the following page under "upcoming"(about half way down the page)they list the game as a "reprint" on 10/2016.

https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/upcoming/

Anyone aware of an update or change? Should I wait until the next version comes out?

Thanks guys!

Unless otherwise stated, a reprint is just that, another print run of the same game.

Have a look at the bottom of the box towards the right hand side that there is a item that says something like "now includes the Heirs of Blood campaign". This is how to tell the difference between the earlier Descent 2 and the later descent 2 releases.

...and Heirs of Blood is the superior base-box campaign according to most. (I bought in early and got The Shadow Rune in the box.)

They sold out of the core game box (main FFG Descent page) thanks to the unexpected popularity and resulting sales after Road to Legend came out. So they're running another print. No plans on the horizon for Descent 3e that I know of.

Here is what I ordered. Is this the most recent version? I sure hope so!

I'm sorry. Not exactly sure what this means. Is there another version I should have bought instead?

Here's what I picked up:

Give them a couple more years of expansions you can buy, THEN, they will come out with third edition...

Which won't really be compatible with what you have purchased.

Here is a link to "Heirs of Blood" for $25.00.

Does the most recent version of Descent include this $25 campaign?

Yes, FFG replaced the previous campaign (shadow rune) with the heirs of blood campaign.

OK. Got it!

I just hope the Amazon.com sold me the latest version. Sounds like they replaced the campaign a while back so I think my odds are good.

I bought mine back when Shadow Rune was included but only recently began playing it. If I buy the Heirs of Blood Campaign separately will I have everything that is in the new version of Descent?

I believe other than errata (Probably? I don't own errata'd versions) nothing changes for game components between the Shadow Rune box and the Heirs of Blood box. If you buy the HoB campaign book you will have all you need.

Actually you'll have more since there's currently no way for people with the new core box to get a hold of the old campaign.
