Hello,

I have juste purchased the game Food Chain Magnate.
I have added it to my "owned" collection on boardgamegeek.

I would now like to precise which version of the game I have. But how do I know ? There are two versions which are both in English & German, on was printed in 2015, one was printed in 2016. How do I tell the difference ? How can I tell which version I own ?

Thank you for your help.

The version page for the third printing says

Quote:
Updated rulebook, infinity symbols added to marketing tokens, updated player aids, orange juice changed to lemonade.


https://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgameversion/294283/first-...

Do you have infinity symbols on all of your marketing tokens? Orange juice or lemonade?

5th Printing = "3rd Printing with modification"?

Do your player aids have Milestones and Career Paths on them?

Quote:
nothing was changed in the 5th (or 4th) printing


So I think either you have an early copy with the minor issues noted above, or one with the third printing fixes/player aid upgrades.

Hi,
Thank you for your answer.
Yes, I have infinity symbols on all of my marketing tokens, and I have lemonade, not orange juice.
My player aids include milestones and career paths.
And I cannot find the mention "3rd Printing with some modifications." in my rulebook.
So I guess it is the third printing that I have.
Thank you for your help !
Best regards,
Benjamin

Can they also change water to wine ?



Sorry, could not resist it.

This is not the cat you're looking for - some other cat maybe?

Look at the bottom of the small print acknowledgements on the lefthand side of the 2nd page (inside cover)

Ah ! There you are. I found it finally. Indeed, so my rulebook has this mention.
So it is the 5th printing that I have.

Thank you so much !
