I have a chance of buying the KS edition of this game. Is it any worse/better than the standard edition? Thx, John

I just looked into last week and retail has everything but the large wood abolisionists(sorry for spelling , its 430am and I hadnt slept) you can get them for 10 bucks on there website. I just got the teacher edition which comes with teaching book. Was worth the xtra 13$ cause I was given the lg pieces for free. Great company and friendly. I went overboard a little and ordered 100 black meeplez from meeplessource to replace wood squares.

There's also a set of cards that are not in retail edition (but are available from the publisher directly).

Which set would that be exactly? I read all goals would be retail. I will need time to go double check but knowing what to look for would help. Thanks

The KS edition also came with a lantern first player marker.

A very similar lantern is easily found at hobby stores like Michaels.

True. In fact, it's not just very similar. I found the exact same lantern at a Michael's store.

What do you mean we don't have time for another game?

Doesn’t look like there’s still an $85 option for everything (including the teacher’s book)...unless maybe I’m missing it on their website?
