Just checking to see if anyone has ordered Tzolk'in from CoolStuffInc lately, and it their stock is the new edition with the 6-piece board and the matte finish. I just spoke with CSI on the phone, and they weren't sure, since the latest edition still says it has the older 4-piece board on the back.

Thanks in advance,
Dave

Can anyone do that? I also bought my copy in the Spring (April or May, maybe) but I'm just wondering what the terms of the offer are.

What is better about the 6 piece board?

I would imagine it's that there are no folds so nothing to possibly tear/split.

Yes, only 1 piece folds, and the board is a matte finish.

With regard to the foregoing, I thought I'd issue a polite warning about Moderators' growing intolerance for Tzolk'in threads that deliberatly exclude the subject of gear painting.

Interesting, I didn't know there were board differences. I bought Tzolkin two months ago (the German version) and it had six board pieces.

I had previously played an English edition (in May), and though I don't remember how many pieces the board had, I do remember other differences. The gold cubes in my edition are yellow instead of metallic gold, and the player pieces seem to be brighter in colour, almost neon.

Do painted gears look better on the 4 or 6 board layout?

Also curious. Got the game a few months ago, but just played it for the first time last night.

Everything seemed fine, but now I'm worried!

To answer my original question: I received my copy of Tzolk'in today from CSI, and it was the newer printing with the 6-piece board, with the matte finish, and has yellow cubes instead of the gold. The printing on the back was still the original one, which indicates a 4-piece player board.
