New Bedford Reprint

So I had a question: New Bedford was one of my absolute favorite games. I'm looking at picking up a copy for my class for when they learn about whaling and the northeastern region. 

 

I know there had been some printing issues with the first batch, so much that even some fixed tiles had been sent out (and that even those had an isue or two). There was also some talk on BGG about there being a second printing in possible development to fix these issues. 

 

Just wondering: has that re-print ever been done, and if so, is there a way to tell "V 1.1" boxes from "V1.0"? I would love to use this game as a teaching tool, but worry about misprinted tiles and such.

The second printing is what's out in the market and has been since last summer! The expansion, Rising Tide, is still the first printing and does have errors. We have errata tiles we can send out free of charge as well, though we're out of stock of them until this summer.

So basically, you should feel free to purchase it and if you somehow end up with the first printing, request the errata tiles and we'll get them to you as soon as they're back in stock.

Awesome, thank you so much, GTGAlex!

 

Just to confirm, is there anyrhing on the packaging (even a date in the small print) to denote the different printings? Just in case my FLGS has the older one.

The 2nd Printing has the GTG logo on the barrel on the front of the box, and the "Dice Hate Me Studio" logo on the back (along with the GTG logo).
