anyone know if the recent 2nd printing is any different than the original?

i know the components were a little lack luster in the first edition.

thanks for any info!

I'd ask where you've been but...

The answer is the tiles are thicker in the second printing but that's all.

And for the record, there's nothing at all wrong with the components of the first edition. I know because that's the edition I have.

Didn't they get rid of Comic Sans as well?

I also fixed a single-word typo on page 4 of the rulebook, rewrote a sentence for clarity on the back page, and removed the unnecessary arrows from the Initiative section of the game board.

I was one (of many, no doubt) who wrote a letter to GMT advising a reprint ASAP. It's a great game, Chad. Well done!

Out of pure business curiosity, I would love to know how large both print runs were; if it's confidential, well, never mind!

Better get back to my ailing spiders...

Are the revised rules available on GMT's web site? I seem to only see the original rules.

Ah... cool.. that's the one I had downloaded. I thought it was the first printing since the graphics had the arrows on the initiative track.

This is cool! Is there a picture of the new board with new fonts?

Don't know, I haven't seen a copy yet...

EDIT: UPS just showed up -- it doesn't specifically say "reprint" or "second edition" on the box, but the item number underneath the GMT logo on the sides of the box is appended with "-11". Also, the copyright date on the back of the box is 2011 instead of 2010.

Hope this helps!

Has anyone else experienced any warping in the player board?

I have the 2nd printing which I left out on my table over night. I went to the game this evening and several of the sections have pretty bad cupping to them.

First time I've had this problem with a GMT game.


My board isn't necessarily warping, but it does not like sitting flat.

i received my copy and can say i'm quite happy with the production quality all around.

My board is NOT warped as someone had asked/mentioned about.
