So I just found out that the petri dishes from the 1st Edition of OTB are a different size than the 2nd Edition, and don't fit in the ITL insert. Is there a way to get petri dishes that would fit? Thanks in advance.

I'm confused. Didn't you just answer your own questions: The 2nd Edition of On The Brink comes with new petri dishes.

Valid point. What I meant was, is there a way to get the new petri dishes without buying the new OTB? I don't know why they didn't come with the OTB replacement deck.

Probably for the same reason the base game replacement deck didn't come with pawns for the new roles.

I ran into the same problem and have purchased the petri dishes at the above link. After measuring and doing some searching, this looked right, and the first comment on the product reassured me. I expect them to fit perfectly when they arrive.

Good luck, fellow upgrader.

Yea, I learned the hard way that the replacement DECK is just that. It is essentially just the cards from the respective games. No petridishes, pawns, stickers, etc. The base game replacement deck seemed a touch expensive for not getting those pawns, particularly after shipping from Canada.

Good luck, fellow upgrader.

Since posting I've figured out how to get everything, including the old petridishes, into the base game box, and the lid sticks up about as much as it would if I used the new insert and petridishes. Plus, the dishes won't get the cool stickers on them if I get new ones. Thanks anyway though. I'm sure someone else will be looking for this in the future.

These appear to be the same dishes that are not available on Amazon any more http://www.lcmlab.com/Plastic_Petri_Dishes_60x15mm_3_Vents_S...

Someone uploaded a PDF of the stickers you can reprint here

I think I might try this since I didn't realize the old edition petri dishes were larger.

EDIT: Ordered. Will report back once they arrive.

Follow up if anyone's watching... the dishes are the right diameter, thought I suspect they're a bit taller than the ones that come with the 2nd edition. However, I was able to fit everything in one box with these.

The one other thing I would point out is that these are medical dishes, so the lids to not lock or snap shut, they just sit freely on top of the bottom. If you grab them by just the lid or knock them off the table, they will come apart.

Thanks for letting us know!

Hello all!

I'm from Canada and found replacement Petri dishes for cheap on Amazon.ca

Here's the link:

Any update on those, do they lock like the pandemic ones, and how are they in terms of height?
