It is not a 1st edition thing. It is a Kickstarter edition thing. Many IB&C have a blinged out KS edition.

"The Grifters (1st Ed) was first released via Kickstarter with the following backer exclusives:"

This sentence confuses me then. : /

As a special reward for our early adopters, all the games sent as rewards to backers of this project will include promo items that won't be included in the retail release of the game.


Quote:
Each copy of Grifters backed on this project will feature upgraded player tableaus. A thick chipboard tableau with linen finish will replace the cardstock tableaus found in the base game. This is a nice extra touch to show everyone that you supported this great new game from the beginning.

I can see why this confuses you, it's a complicated sentence.

It's saying two things.

1. The 1st edition was released via Kickstarter
2. Kickstarter backers received the following exclusives

It does not say that the first edition is KS exclusive, nor that the exclusives are part of 1st edition.

FWIW, IB&C has always had trouble with communication, but I don't think they were trying to be intentionally misleading here. It's just unfortunately worded.
