While do some Xmas shopping last Wednesday, I discovered one the local game stores in my area had twelves copies instock. Six where English Editions and the other six where Collectors Edition (with the Collector's being $9 more). When I asked the clerk what more you got from the Collector's edition, he wasn't aware of any differences other than having instructions in other languages.

Anyone know if the Collectors Edition includes anything more than the instructions in other languages?

From this thread:

Quote:
...they have two versions available, one is 10$ US more. The only difference is a movie poster inside, a foil glossy cover, and rules in 6 languages. Since the cheaper two language edition contains an english rulebook I personally was all set.

I was told by our store clerk that there was no difference other than the cover and the rulebooks, as told to him by the distributor. They obtained copies for sale of the 'foil' edition at no extra cost but could command more for them, of course.

Since this was the edition given to kickstarter backers, I know that there was also a movie poster contained in the box. KS supporters of escape can chime in and correct me if I am wrong but I read one of them saying this elsewhere.

The collector's ed. (at least, the oes from Kickstarter) was supposed to be singed & numbered by the designer...

Then we were told that this would be done through a sticker because some people didn't want their box damaged which was still ok

And finally we never got it as Queen games LIED about it and mislead game collectors (like me) with their project on Kickstarter

But besides that, it shouldn't have any difference at all besides the poster & box cover

so yes, movie poster is in the box as well. There are pictures of it in a backer update on the game's KS page.

I actually have signed one thousand stickers! So they do exist, somewhere. Unfortunately I do not know when they were sent out, but at least Queen games have no interest in holding on to them, even though they are really awesome

Now if they would only quit holding on to the U.S. copies of the game.

Bought the cheaper version, thanx for the info. I would have been upset paying an extra $9 for a poster and a possible limited number.

Second that. Bought mine in the States last week: no poster (unless it's hiding under the insert...)

Thx for the reply!!

That's very nice of you!!

Any chance that i can send you money to cover the shipping fees and you send me one of those?

Great game! but when it takes the designer himself to answer a very simple question that QG should have answered... i rest my case

I would if I had them I believe they arrived at the publisher a little late. The printing of the games had already been delayed, and the Kickstarter games were therefore sent out without the stickers to avoid further delay of the games. I believe Queen's plan was to send the stickers out to the Kickstarter preorders afterwards, but obviously there has been a problem with the logistics.

About the "Collector's edition": I think the main difference is the gold foiled box.
