Now that backers are receiving there boxes Game Salute is probably gearing up for the 6th edition to follow the trend they had been doing.

Backers get 4th edition...Big Box Launched on KS
Backers get Big Box version...5th Edition Launched on KS

So would assume now...

Backers get 5th edition...6th edition launched on KS.


LOL

I am in a simular position. I can get the Big Box set or wait for the 5th edition. Not sure which is the better choice. The Big Box set has all the expansions I could want, however I heard that there were misprints on the board.
On the other hand I could wait for the 5th edition, the street date varies from Sept 15 to December. The video from GenCon said early in September, but the online store I buy my games have it listed as 4th quarter.

Any advice?

Just take whichever you see in stores. The editions are so frequent and the changes so minor (I'm probably mistaken, but wasn't the big selling point of the 5th a new box cover and no tuck boxes?) it's just ridiculous.

I got the big box at a recent sale and they sent me the missing tile and a couple stickers to add clarification on some boards.
I do miss the tuckboxes though, I thought those were an awesome addition to 4e.
It is an interesting marketing/publication schedule they have.

Got my copy without the tuck boxes and was gutted after seeing them in another version.

I would also have loved the flip side of the game board with extras, I might have to try and source these somewhere.
