I'm looking to get either the master set or one of the starter sets. If I order a starter set online or in my local store how do I know if it is the original or the new reprint version?

By the way the box looks. The original starter set boxes had about the same dimensions as a DVD case, but thicker. The new starter set boxes are square.

Old starter set:


New starter set:


That's for Phoenix Elves vs. Tundra Orcs. The Guild Dwarves vs. Cave Goblins are similar: oblong box for the old version, square for the new.

Thanks.

Are the updated available yet? On the website it says preorder.

If I order online say from Amazon I'm not sure if I would get old or new. They show the new artwork.

It's really hard to find the old ones. I assume if they're showing the new artwork on the box, you're getting the new one.

And if it says pre-order it's only because they're waiting for the next batch to come back form the printer. Plaid Hat has said that their goal is to never have things go out of print. They might go out of stock, but not print.

Ok thanks everyone.

I am going to order one of the starter sets on Amazon and see how I like it.

Any recommendations on which one to get?

Just get which ever one has the more appealing factions to you. The game is solidly balanced and all the factions have their own feel, so it's pretty hard to go wrong.
