Congratulations. You have just discovered the secret message.
Please send your answer to Old Pink, care of the Funny Farm, Chalfont.
20 copies just came into my FLGS this week after being off the shelves for months. So there was apparently a reprint. Whether or not the issues have been fixed, I'm unsure. I'm not ready to throw down $30+ until we have a clear answer!
I presume he's referring to the official rule changes for expansion factions "Shapeshifters" and "Riverwalkers". If there indeed has been a reprint, it would be mildly interesting to know whether and how the rule changes are incorporated: 1) board and rules are the same as in the 1st edition 2) extra leaflet with changed rules added 3) rule book contains revised rules and player board is revised
Potentially there could be further combinations between 2) and 3).
Right. I've been reading the forums for other games where there's component issues, but haven't noticed anything when playing fire&ice. (Well the fire/ice buildings are slightly different sizes from base game factions. The difference is really small - someone had to point it out to me.) Have reprints of the base game included cultists errata? If not, it seems unlikely this errata is included.
