I've been itching to get this game but want to be sure that I get the newer edition. Does anybody know if the newer edition is indicated on the box?

If you look in the lower right corner of the cover, you'll see "Revised Printing" in small white letters.

The FAQ has been worked into the rulebook and the rulebook over all is supposed to be better.
Also the FAQ has been applied to the investigators and the cards where errors exist.

On the downside (for most) the color of the map has changed. Old one was a horrorish night view. New one is old photograph sepia style.

Personally, I like the new board. I like the old board too.. Good thing I have a copy of both editions.

Is the revised board any easier on the eyes? The earlier board was so dark and busy that I found it hard to focus on and read.

It is very easy on the eyes, you wont have any problems with the new board.

I recently picked up the game and have to say that the new board is nice. Initially, I had some reservations after some of the negative comments and looking at the pics. It looks better in person than it does in some of the pics. The text is clear, the boxes are easily distinguished by the colors, and the old photograph map is nice. Much better than expected. Two thumbs up.
