I have four copies....all are 11 high except for one that is 11 1/4.  All were bought at the same time from Goodman!  I bought them very early in the ordering stage. Weird.

I have 25 copies at 11 1/4" and 1 copy at 11". I doubt we cal assign Alpha status with any real accuracy. My initial presumption was that the 11" copy was the Alpha have bought my larger copies as soon as NKG listed their stock (I bet they won't make that mistake again). I presumed NKG had the most recent stock, hense my fears at the time that a third printing had occured and not been disclosed.

But Shane's testement conflicts and your order was mixed. Is there a difference in the blue tones of the maps within the bifold between your two different height copies?

No difference in any blue tones.  Is there one between the one you got from me and the others you purchased? Ian, on further examination, the taller one is NOT 11 1/4, but maybe 11 1/8.  The oddball one is just barely taller than the other three.  Perhaps just some minor printing variation???

Yeah and let me correct mine..it is 11" (measured from the 1 inch mark to get a correct measurement and so goofed when I typed that it came to 12 inches yet forgot to subtract the 1")

As for color difference I'd have to see examples as I only have 1 2nd. Course do either of these match a 1st? I should probably check mine, but shall have to be tommorrow.

oh well much more time before the other play off game starts, so it appears that my 2nd print has a much darker blue for the map then the 1st's if that means anything for this disscussion.

I bought 3 copies of 2nd print and 2 of them are the tall boy versions.  The are 11 1/8 inches tall.  My 3rd copy, the shorter one is probably 10.8 inches tall.  The height difference is almost 3/8 of an inch and I don't see any difference in the blue.  I ordered my copies a couple of days before the end of the buying period.

Looking at the cover of my short copy, it looks like a bad cut job - the border is definitely not even going left to right.  On the left, the bottom yellow border is 1/8 thick and at the right it is 1/4.

I'm just wondering how many covers would have been printed on the same sheet?  If the were large sheets then for each tall copy there should be a short copy.

I can confirm mine as the 11 1/8 size (on conversion  :) )

I've got four from the second print all the same size. though these were ordered as soon as John said he was going to reprint it.

Colour inside the cover on the maps is the same as in the originals.

So we have 3 different sizes at least? I reckon they just used more than one press and more than one cutting machine, and what we're looking at is a combination of different batches as they were assembled, cut and boxed.

25 copies!!!  Wow.  I reckon that was a good buy - although you will have to wait a wee while till they hit $200 each.  

I bought 3 and they are all 282mm high - ordered on the last day.  They were delayed in arriving and Joe emailed me with  "We had a hiccup when some of the order arrived in damaged condition from the
printer" so that is some evidence that mine might be the later printing.

*** edited to add that my original 1st prints seem to have a very very slightly darker ink on page 1 than the reprints (or it could be my eyes  :D ).

I've taken your lead, Mike, and dropped the price to under $50.

I think you'll move more that way....$50 seems to be the set price at this point for these items...

OK, the only one I've seen of these selling recently, and it only sold for $17


** expired eBay auction **




Is the any collectibility to these?  Has anyone found a greater market for 1st printing VS 2nd printing?



I've got extras of both 1st & 2nd printings of these I'm looking to sell, but at $17, doesn't look like there's much of a market...

I don't think there is much current collectibility in the 2nd print.  I think most people who wanted a copy bought 5 when Goodman Games offered them for after Gencon sale.  A flooded second print market also limits the 1st print market.

It just depends.  That one kind of slipped under the radar, I've sold quite a few copies at $50 or so.

Well, I guess that answers that then.


** expired eBay auction **




The only 1 that sold was to the 2nd highest bidder of the $17 one from a few weeks earlier.



I think we can say that the 2nd printing of this module has no collector value.



I'm going to relist it at cover price and see if it is still worth that, or if everyone who ever wanted one already has one.
