Ok, perhaps the question about price has more to do with the old edition than with the new one...Why was that one so expensive? It's over $75 in my country and from what I saw internationally there aren't much different prices!

Second of all, I've noticed that the box is smaller. Is the board smaller? Has any component been left out?


Thanks in advance!

I am so looking forward to finally getting my hands on this at a reasonable price! I've seen so many comparisons with Eldritch Horror that I was very sad that I could not afford the old edition

The box is smaller because the way the board is folded.

The board is the same size but it folds in a different way to fit the square box. Grab a piece of paper and try to fit it in boxes of different sizes.

Get it?

This version of the game is an improvement over the original one, especially the rulebook and some of the components. I don't think that something has been removed from the game, despite the price being smaller.
In fact you can check this link from dice tower news, where you can see the differencies from the old and this new edition - http://www.dicetowernews.com/portal-announces-specific-chang...

If something was removed, I think that the publisher would announce this before the game being released next month.
I also want to buy the game next month and hopefully there will be no surprises re board sizes or missing components.

Thanks, I've seen the infographic describing the differences. I was just wondering why the price tag was so different from the older version, if nothing was left out...

Size of print run can affect cost - more copies, lower cost per copy.

It is a different publisher (portal vs z-man), they likely have different price setting algorithms.

MSRP for Portal games edition is 65 usd (link)

Comparision of components between old and new edition - link.

Size of the board is the same, it is folded in 8 instead of 6 parts.

I read in a blog reply that the text on the cards will be updated, but I can find any article saying that. What am I missing?

I don't remember the source (it might be one of the links provided by Ignacy above), but there will be 400 text modifications

They hopefully add a handy overview like this which can thankfully be found in the German version:



I created an English version which can be downloaded ►here.

Preview (210 mm x 240 mm):



There's also a double-sided version (105 mm x 240 mm):

Wow, I missed that. And apparently quite a few other people too. Let's hope it will be included in the new version.
