Dear Aliens and Humans,

This is an update because for those of you that preordered or are going to preorder the Ultimate Edition of EFTAIOS!

We at Santa Ragione are partnering with the awesome folks over at Osprey Games (ospreypublishing.com/store/osprey-games) to bring you the highest quality edition you could hope for.

Osprey Games will publish and distribute the game worldwide, while we make sure the contents are the best possible for all of you EFTAIOS fans.

Osprey will also fulfill all of your preorders. No action is required, Osprey Games will ship your preorder to the address you provided as soon as the game is ready, without any extra charge.

NOTE: If you haven't provided us with the desired shipping address yet, please do so! You have received a link following your preorder with instructions: please click on the voucher code contained inside and follow instructions.

The new expected launch date is May 2016. We are very sorry for the delay compared to our original plan (December 2015). We completely understand if you have pre-ordered and would like to request a refund (Instructions here: https://support.humblebundle.com/hc/en-us/articles/203662804...), but if you can wait another five months we'll deliver a much better edition than we'd ever hoped to make when we opened pre-orders (see details below).

As a huge thanks for your patience, we've added to the pre-orderers' download page that comes with each pre-order a free copy of our science fiction video game MirrorMoon EP, including a Steam key to redeem on Steam. By the way, if you didn't know already, on the same page you can find a print and play version of EFTAIOS, to practice your alien-escaping skills until the Ultimate Edition comes out.

And now some more details on the Ultimate Edition:

- The maps will be laminated for reuse and the box will include 8 dry erase markers!

- We are including all five maps from the previous Limited Edition of EFTAIOS (not available anywhere else), a new exclusive map designed by the original authors of the game, plus two more picked from previous expansions, for a total of eight maps.

- The box will contain 98 cards [89mm x 57mm, 300gsm], including all 16 characters, the 2 exclusive items from the Limited Edition (Sensor and Clone), plus 2 completely new items.

- The box will be 279mm x 216mm x 50mm!

- The new edition will include different special powers for all the characters to make every play even more varied and exciting.

- This is our new WIP cover for the game:



We will announce the new items available in the Ultimate edition next month here on BoardGameGeek, so keep an eye on our game page!

If you have any question don't hesitate to write us at info at santaragione.com

Cheers!

Pietro

PS: There are only 100 copies of EFTAIOS ULTIMATE EDITION left for pre-order, and we will only accept preorders until the end of December or until when we run out of copies, whatever comes first!

Just pre-ordered. You're using Humble Bundle's store, so I'm a little confused. Once it's locked in and I get the email, do I have to do anything else...? Did you just pull my shipping address from PayPal?

Will we still get paper copies of the maps? It my sound silly but I vastly prefer writing with a pencil/pen vs trying to use a dry erase marker on a laminated sheet. (Smudging, accidental erasures, etc)

Maybe I'm the only one?

You have to go to the purchase page in Humble and click the link that gives you a voucher code, click the code, and that will bring you to a google form which you put your address into.

Hey! We'll publish the maps online so you can print them if you prefer playing with a pencil!

@Jon Harris Thank you for explaining how to submit the address and sorry for teh confusion everyone.

Hey! Sorry about that the special offer pre-order (35€ inc. shipping) is over for good, but I think Osprey will re-open regular preorders soon on their web. I also saw the Ultimate Edition is now available on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1472817737/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_d...

Hey guys,

very sorry about dropping the ball on the updates! We have been very focused on getting the edition right and to release in time as promised!

You can see a bit of an unboxing in this video here:

https://youtu.be/_b2yKzLMDx4?t=1m35s

The new unannounced special items are:

CAT – lets you declare two noises during your turn!
MUTATION – lets you transform into an alien!

We've also added very handy cheatsheets on the personal map-books to keep track of all the character powers and items <3

Can't wait to hear what you think of the new edition!

Excellent, thanks for the update!

Do you know if the insert piece shown holding the dry erase markers is easily removable? I'll definitely want to sleeve those cards, looks like there should be plenty of room with that marker holder removed.

Should this game have arrived (at a US address)? I haven't received anything or any shipping notification.
