Hi everyone! I've noticed by looking through the forums for SDE that people make mention of different editions of the game. That is; 1, 1.5 and 2. Is there a way to tell which edition of SDE you have?

Ideally, I'd like to play the most up to date ruleset with the standard SDE box. To aid in this, I've picked up the Forgotten King rulebook and the Forgotten King upgrade deck. Will I be playing as up to date as I can once these items arrive? Currently I am unclear on what edition each box belongs to and want to be sure I'm actually running things from the same edition. Thanks!

Yes you will be as up to date as you can be at the moment. The 'standard box' (with the kobolds and drakes) was 1st edition, Forgotten King updated the rules somewhat and the last kickstarter was for what will be the 2nd edition (remade 'standard box') together with the Legends mode way of playing.

SDE 1,5 is a downloadable pdf update to ruleset 1. v2 the ruleset is the updated rules published with sde:fk boxeset.

The update deck is merely meant so you can use models released before sde:fk in sde:fk it is NOT all you need to play v2 rules as it is missing treasure decks, explore decks, arcade mode ai deck , creeps etc.

Can you mix the different editions? I'm just getting into the game and I have a version 1 copy but some version 1.5 or 2 expansions.

Can I use version 1 stuff in version 2?

As some of the game mechanisms changed, the 1.0 cards aren't compatible with the later (1.5/2.0) forgotten king rules.
To use the older content (old content: http://sodapopminiatures.com/super-dungeon-explore/special-e...) with the new rules you need an upgrade card pack:

Is there still a reason to buy the 1st edition? Are the models or tokens different or anything usable from the 1st to 2nd edition?

The models are all usable as alternate sculpts. Dice are usable as extra dice.
The original heroes and monsters were all re-sculpted and are included in SDE 2.0.

And 2.0 is including cards to play the monsters different ways too.
Kobolds, ice kobolds, nether cobolds.
Fire drakes, ice drakes.

You'd almost be tempted to get another 1.0 box just to mix in all the different sculpts .. especially wehen you are going to paint them!

Absolutely,
The new sculpts and promise of alternate cards are the reason I bought the 2.0 box in the legends kickstarter even though I own 1.0 .
I chose 2.0 over the human/orc war and option because it will give me more unique sculpts to paint and more gameplay material (but mostly because of more unique sculpts).
