I've got one of these that I'm planning to put on Ebay.  It's the one with the controversial SEX related chart that classifies homosexuals as evil.  This chart was removed in all later printings.

 Any suggestions for where to let this one go?  Is Ebay a good place or should I save it for Gencon next year?

Ebay is a good place.  They tend to sell very well, probably about $50 but it has potential to go higher.  I'm not sure how it would do at GenCon.

I just picked up a different printing of this title:

The blue-cover appears to be an earlier printing than the brown (product code 8542 vs 8546), but there is no 'sex' reference chart mentioned above...

Does that make my blue-covered copy a second print?

Does the first print cover look any different?  Different page numbers?

Thanks in advance :)

The blue bordered cover is the first edition; the brown is the second.

In the blue one, check chart 649F, page 71, and you'll see homosexuality classified as a Darkside (evil) trait.

If you don't, then yes, you have another printing.
