Where can you detect this? Balancing the game would be good .

Blast. Does this mean I have to pick up the 1st edition expansions now or never?

It says they're including some material from the expansions - the most important among them being ports, which fixed the single biggest problem with the base game (IMHO).

Includes ports, 3-6 players from the get-go...

Only sad thing: 138 plastic units

I love the wooden pieces, it's a shame they are replacing them.

Are they the same shapes or are they like minis? I can't tell from the pictures.

Interesting. I wonder if this supersedes the previously reported reprint? Also curious about expansion elements. I don't have any of these yet, but am interested in the main game and expansions - do we have any idea if those are also set to be revised and if not, will they be necessary add-ons with whatever elements are now to be included in this version?

It mentions certain elements from the expansions: the fact that is playable by 3-6 players points out that the map will add the "expanded" south (Dorne, basically). The base game includes only 5 Houses, with the dornishmen coming in the first expansion. Now it will all be there from the get-go.

Ports are another adition from the expansions that is very needed; before that, losing your place in the seas meant that you would basically never get it back again

Siege engines, wildling cards, all from the expansions.

plastic meeples?

now why not just go all the way and use actual minis? make them in the same scale as Battles of Westeros minis so FFG could just port sculpts from one game to the other.

plastic meeples? shake

I told someone who pulled it from an auction to sell, as a reprint was assured. He must be kicking himself.

Looks like they're bringing in a whole new set of house cards for everyone. I still like the original set, but new can be good.

There is a lot of information about the game now already. Will someone create a game entry for it so I can put it into my "Hot 10"?

Crud. I paid retail price for my original game and the Kings expansion. But, had to pay an arm and leg for the Swords expansion. Now I can get them all in a reprint?

I'll probably end up buying the reprint. Maybe with the new house cards, they'll play slightly differently and I won't feel like a sucker.(although, I'm glad I have the wooden figures.)

Is there much interest for this? If there is we will certainly consider it. Anyone else interested in wooden tokens for this? They would be priced around $19.95 for the token set.
