Just got my copy from Amazon.

How do I determine if I got the 2nd printing without opening the box? Is there something printed on the box to indicate the printing/version? If the seller sent me a 1st printing, I’m returning it.

Very unlikely the seller had any unsold first printings but why would you return it? There is a free replacement card set available for the handful of minor misprints on some of the cards.

I wouldn't return a game I've waited for months because of a typo But to each his own

However, I think it's HIGHLY unlikely that you got a first printing.

You do know the typos are in the second printing too, right? They didn’t get fixed until the third run. You can get corrected cards from MeepleSource for the cost of shipping.

It's listed under the Rules on the Wingspan site.... I just got mine from Amazon as well and it is 2nd printing, 3rd print isn't out yet.

https://stonemaiergames.com/games/wingspan/rules/

How do I know which printing I have?


Look at the number to the left of the panda icon near the bar code on the bottom of your box (English printings only). This is what the first printing code looks like (1712-1764):



This is what the second printing looks like (1812-2078):




This is what the third printing looks like (19003):

Thanks Mike! I just added that to the FAQ the other day (I also typed out the number on the FAQ, as they're pretty small on the boxes).

I just want a version that has no misspellings, nothing that will confuse people. So looks like I got 2nd printing. I’ll keep it. Thanks to all who helped!

Bought a copy today at a brick and mortar store. Lo and behold, 1st edition. Thought those would have all been gone by now!! Meeplesource it is for the upgrade pack...

Same thing happened to me last Friday. They got two copies in from the distributer and I thought it would be 2nd or 3rd printing according to Jamey's comments but it actually was 1st printing. So, I think people need to be aware the there are 1st printing copies being sold at retail right now.

Note that they are all first edition, you got a first printing copy. Printing and Edition refer to two different things.
