Just wondering if anyone else had seen the new edition available yet? I was in a Target this morning in Cleveland and to my surprise, they had three copies of the new box. I was under the impression it wasn't out!

Well, Cleveland does rock, apparently.

Also, any sign of On the Brink or In the Lab?

It was selling for $39.99, and I know Target has a nice rotation of putting their products on sale. At some point in the next few months, I'm sure they'll have it for $25-$30. I recently picked up X-Wing there for $30

No, I didn't see either expansion on the shelf. Anyone know if Target plans on carrying these? I can see it happening now that Z-Man is aiming for Pandemic to hit the big time.

I just saw 3 copies of the new game at my Target in MA as well. I missed out on an original printing, so I quickly snatched it up.

Ditto Target in Johnson City, TN. No "On the Brink," just the base game.
Big disappointment: same box size as version 1. Was hoping for a box big enough to fit base game + expansion(s), as that's such an issue with version 1. Maybe "On the Brink" will have a larger box...

If I was a little more media-savvy I'd post a boxing video of my first edition + On the Brink. It all fits very easily.

I'll try to get a picture of my box up one of these days, but with a little effort an creativity with the insert, it all fits nicely!

The official release date for the new version in the US is February 6th. In the Lab is supposed to be released later in 2013.

Just read the previous posts... Went to my local target in Smyrna, TN, and look what was on the shelves (3 copies)...



Thank you all for the watchful eyes, and letting me get my copy a week early!

Yep, just bought a copy at the Target in Dayton, Ohio.
Outside of the art differences, the pawns are much smaller than my original copy, the research centers are bigger, and the cubes are smaller. The board doesn't feel as cluttered thanks to these changes. I'm sure everyone already knows that Toronto has become Montreal, but I was quite shocked to find that the pathway between Sao Paolo and Lagos has been removed. It really segregates Africa and makes the Yellow virus that much harder.

I am supremely disappointed to see that the box is the exact same size as the old version. It was almost impossible to fit "On the Brink" in the old box, and literally will be impossible to fit it and "In the Lab" in the new one. angry

Bought a copy in San Antonio, TX, this morning. The first Target I went to still had a copy of the old printing, but the second one had three copies (now two cool) of the 2013 edition.

Having only seen pictures of the old artwork, the new art doesn't bother me in the slightest and fits the theme for me. It looks better in person, too.

I'm jealous. meeple I've placed pre-order on this, but I doubt that will be shipped early so it will be weeks until I finally get to play this.. It will be my first game of Pandemic too. I really like Forbidden Island so it should be great.

Every Target seems to have three copies. If they added another would it cause an outbreak?

Is this really true? Can someone confirm this on the new edition?
