How does one tell from the box cover if the edition is the 2010 deluxe version with the mounted board? Both versions displayed on BGG (2001 and 2010) look absolutely identical on the front cover.

It's good to know when you are buying online.

If you buy from an on-line store or directly from GMT it should be the 2010 Deluxe version. I bought my copy October 2011. On the front cover, in either the lower right hand or left hand corner is a copyright which gives the year - 2010.

Buy from an OLGS that specifies that it's the 2010 version.

GMT products are coded with a 4 digit number. For instance, Here I Stand is 0512.

The deluxe edition of Here I Stand, which came in 2010, has a product code of 0512-10.

If memory serves, the WW reprint should have a -xx in the product code.

I agree with that. In the UK one OLGS does that which means they are more likely to get my custom.

You can also email or call them of course but that does not mean they know themselves.

Does the 2010 edition have the mounted map? If so, the weight might be a give-away.

I can confirm that the 2010 edition does have the mounted map included.
