I'm confused.

In some posts people talking about 2nd edition, in others about 2nd printing.
Printing means that the game is the same, but if there is a really 2nd edition, what are the differences between the two?
I have a chance to buy 1st one, is it better to wait for a new one then?


Thank you.

2nd printing. A few updates to the rulebook for errata.

It's a 2nd printing. The only difference between the 1st and 2nd printing is the some errata were fixed in the rulebook, and you can download the updated rulebook on the GMT website.

There's a second difference: size of the box. The second edition comes in a 3" box, first one didn't.

Is the intention is that you can fit the expansion in the 2nd printing 3" box but not the 1st print 2" box?

I believe so. I suspect (never owned the 1st edition) the components might fit but you won't be able to organize them very well - the 3" box allows me to use a few G33kboxes to sort certain components e.g.

I just re-boxed my own copy over the weekend, and I fit the base game plus expansion (with all cards sleeved) in the new box without a problem, after I took out the insert. My tokens are just bagged though; not sure you could do it with a tray.

I have my cards sleeved and the tokens in a GMT tray. The base game and the expansion fits comfortably in the bigger box.
