I got an email at 3:07am today stating "Far off Games" has shipped my Xia, legends of a drift system. Here's the thing...I Kickstarted it with the expansion just recently.

WHAT?!?!? Can someone explain what just happened?

The last update said that the base game is shipping separately now due to being economically a better choice.

Ninja myself...just saw Cody's update.

Question: will the second edition printing contain any updates Vs. the one we're receiving now?

EDIT: I do understand the cost of surplus, I just hope what Amazon isn't doing is Shipping unsold U.S. surplus while the updated edition is printed and shipped with the expansion.

LAST KICKSTARTER UPDATE

Hello! This short update is for those of you in the USA who've pledged for a copy of the BASE GAME.

Because of Amazon storage policy, Base Games ordered in the USA shipping out now.
Because of Amazon storage policy, Base Games ordered in the USA shipping out now.


Because Amazon has recently let me know of their long-term storage policy, it has become advantageous for me to ship out your copies of the BASE GAME now, rather than wait until the expansion is ready to ship along with them.

You should receive a shipping notification email from Amazon soon!

This announcement does not affect anyone outside of the United States.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks! -Cody

What second edition printing? There isn't a second edition.

All copies after the first batch from KS have thinner shipmats to combat the warping that some people experience. There are no other differences.

That's what I Kickstarted (thinner mats). Is that what I'm getting?

Unless you find an original KS copy for sale... all copies now have thinner mats. So that's what you're getting.

I see, thought it was a change with the expansion KS. Thanks for the info.

Had I realized that, I probably would've just scooped up the base and did the KS for the expansion. Looks like dumb luck (and the evil Amazon empire) brings me the base game early!

Haha! Yeah, just making it official for anyone reading, yes - the currently shipping version is the exact same as what's going to ship alongside the Expansion for those outside the US.

Cheers, -Cody

Cody specifically said somewhere that the base game will not contain any errata or anything like that in the next printing. He wanted it to keep uniformity between printings. Errata and such will be in the expansion.
