Just ordered this game on Amazon after seeing it in my local game store (I know, should have just bought from there to support them, but wanted to do more research first). However, the one on Amazon *looks* like it might be an older print from what I saw in the store. Looking now there is an edition to be released "April 2014" and I was wondering if this version has a better cardstock as the flimsy cards were noted in some reviews. I think this is the version I saw in the physical store because of the shape of the box.

Can you link us to the Amazon page for the one you bought? Otherwise I don't think there's enough info to be able to answer your question.

Here it is:

This is clearly the older one, assuming the product that arrives is the product pictured. The question is does the newer reprint have cards that will hold up better without sleeves?

To my knowledge the components inside the box are the same and the cards have the same quality in both editions, the only practical difference being the packaging.

I bought both editions and they appear to be the same. The only difference is the packaging and the rulebook is larger for the boxed edition. I didn't do a side-by-side comparison of the rules, so there may be some rule changes or clarifications, but components look identical.

FWIW, I also got an email from AEG confirming components are the same for the 2014 boxed edition.

Is the velvet bag in the 2014 boxed edition? I can't find that detail anywhere.

So the Boxed Edition IS, in fact, out? I preordered mine from CSI back in February, and they've been holding a whole order of mine until they get it in. They told me a few days ago they were waiting for the publisher to update the release date, and were hoping it would be out by the end of May.
