I ordered off amazon.

Said it was second edition. But how do I know for sure?

I don't see any indicator on the box. And the rules say "v 1.0" which makes me think it is first edition, but the rules on the website for the game are also "v 1.0"

Thanks!

You said it came in a box. That's the Second Edition (should say "Gold Banner Edition" on the bottom left).
The First Edition came in a polybag.

Another easy way to tell...look at the map. If Detroit is not sitting in the middle of Canada, then you have the latest edition. It was something I lobbied for as a playtester whistle

And FWIW the second edition is available in a cheaper plastic bag edition too. (Which is what I've been binge-playing the last several days since receiving it, yay.)
