I love Arkham Horror, but the first board I ever played on had a green layout. I assume this was a first run of the boards when it was released. I of course own the yellow board edition, but I really preferred the green board. Anyone know where I can get my hands on one of those nifty green boards?

The 'spooky Arkham' was only the first printing. It was lightened up to make it easier to read, after feedback. Some people prefer the older board, some people really want the newer sepia tone board that will match all the expansions.

The artwork is exactly the same, as is all the text, the image was just desaturated in certain color areas.

Thanks for playing,

THAADD!!! Is that a picture of you? I've always wondered what you look like, and love the support you provide for FFG

And just to throw in my 2cents, I also preferred the darker board, and am glad I bought a 1st printing of this game

My only regret is that it doesn't match my expansion boards. Oh well, I still have a cooler, evil Arkham, if not a lighter, fall-toned Kingsport

Thanks for the info Thaadd. I just liked the green color better and definitely acknowledge that there was no difference in flavor, I just liked the color better. Glad to hear from you though .

Yep, that is an (old) picture of me. Not the best, as well, I'm not the man. I'm the woman

Shnar, you're crazy, go back to watching your 3rd ed. SH box and try to peel the shrink-wrap with your mind !

I'm glad I have the newer, lighter board. Put it next to the DH board and the DH board looks like it has been separated at birth, the coloring matches so nicely.

Hey! I love Arkham Horror as well

Hell, I love /most/ of the FFG games. I just wish I could get my Doom dice replaced with engraved dice instead of printed dice.

And in addition to Space Hulk, I'm looking forward to Descent: The Sea of Blood on Christmas morning too!

I have the older darker board and much prefer the look of it to the sepia one, but it's falling to bits from over-use... Some day soon I'm gonna have to invest in a newer edition just to get a decent usable board.
