I just got this game from for Christmas from Amazon and noticed that my box art is different than the product page. It only has the title: The Others. It doesn’t say The Others: 7 sins. Is this an old version of the game? Is there any difference with the new version? Thanks for the help.

None of the physical copies say 7 Sins on the box.

The image you see online with “7 Sins” on the art comes from the original Kickstarter campaign.

I suspect they removed it from the box art and official game name because, during that campaign, so many people complained that the box only included two sins.

I could see how people could be choked about it not including all the sins. I have the KS edition and buddies are still shocked it doesn't include all 7 in base box.

I remember complaining a lot to my friends over here when the kickstarter was launched, how daring were they for calling it "7 sins" and only having 2 sins in the box. Looks like more people complained to the right people and then it was removed from the official name of the game.

Even the KS box doesn't say 7 sins any more - but the KS was quite a ride when people thought we wouldn't even get all 7 sins..

That being said I understand why CMON did what they did.
