Just FYI, I see VPG has made an official announcement on their site about ceasing production of Zeds version 2 on March 16, if you want to pick up a copy.

The announcement says they will launch Zeds 3 later in the year.

Pretty curious to see what a 'mass market' produced game from VPG is going to be like. I think they made a good call using Zeds as their guinea pig for this new line of games.

I imagine Hermann well need a wheelbarrow to cart all the money to the bank.

Ha! It still won't make up for all the years of abuse I've taken from losing Zeds players!

It will look very professional, like a FANTASY FLIGHT game (at least, that is very much our goal).

I just concluded an Alpha test game and know that we're getting the balance adjusted (and we've hammered the heck out of all of the features; they're working like champs). We're down to the tiny tweaking stages this week, and the game will be going to Barry in our graphics to make an awesome beta kit that we will be sending out the the "Z-Team" and start showing on the forums, etc.

Sorry if this has been answered elsewhere but will the new version contain or be compatible with the Directors Cut expansion? And if so, will it contain the same art?

I only ask as I was a participant in the directors cut competition and have my likeness on a few of the cards. I still haven't bought it yet though. Was wondering if I should get it now or wait for the new edition.

The 3rd edition will INCLUDE the material from THE DIRECTOR'S CUT. It will also have all-new art.

You will want to get it now. THE DIRECTOR'S CUT expansion will be sold after 16 March, however, at least for a while as demand lasts.

Alan, can you say the physical size of the new board? I use the smaller sized map now as it fits well in my available space. I could probably use the larger sized Tim Allen map if necessary, though I would probably have to move some components off table.

The 3rd edition map is based on the Tim Allen version, so 17" x 22". It fits all the new components quite comfortably.
