Is there a way to recognize the 3rd printing from the outside of the box? If I went to a store to buy the 3rd version with the corrected ship order on the board & latest rulebook how would I know if it is in the box or not?
Does the UPC code vary? Or maybe there is an item number showing if it is the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd print run?
On the same note, if I were to order one from some of the popular online retailers would you have any way to know what version they are stocking currently? I assume their stock probably rotates even more often but without seeing the box they grab off the shelf how could I make sure I am getting latest version?

Unfortunately, no such distinction has been made on the box.

Our 2nd edition copies sold through months ago and we have stocked distributors with the 3rd edition copies.

Major online retailers should all be selling 3rd edition.
Brick and Mortar stores could have either depending on how long they have had the item in stock. If they ordered it more than 3 months ago, it is probably second edition.

Sorry there isn't a clear way to tell in advance of opening the box.

What are the differences between 2nd and 3rd editions?

From what I understand is 2 things. One is the more updated rulebook which is already available to print from the FILES section on this game. The other was the art on the board for the food to warrior ratios was switched so the locations farthest from the dock required more food making slightly more thematic sense.

Is it possible, if we already have the 2nd printing, to get the new board somewhere ? I'm in Canada.
