FFG now have revised rules PDF on their support page.

Changes I've noticed:
- The FAQ seems to be incorporated.
- More examples added, a setup diagram and a quick reference on the last page.
- "Locked Dice Icons" are now separated from "Task symbols".

If you notice something else, please share.

Chris, you know it wouldn't be an FFG manual if it didn't have typos...

True. It's like an authentication watermark!

Is there a version of the revised rules online, which scrolls faster? This one goes slowly.

So I assume this is the version of the rulebook you get with the most recent printing of the game?

Looks like it still lacks what every ES player has been waiting for: a play-tested hard level variation.

I just picked up the game yesterday (damn you Wil Wheaton!) It is the Revised Printing (says so on both the box cover and rulebook.) And yes, the updated rulebook is included...

Does it have the errata for Carolyn, Mandy and Vincent on the cards (i.e. does it say "once per day")?

Haha - ditto. Stop spending my money, Wheaton!

I just picked up a copy yesterday and it's apparently the original version. I had been reading the revised rulebook on my iPad, and immediately noticed the printed one was not as thorough. So at least I have the iPad, right?
