@Phil: They're updated versions. That means different things for different cards. A few of the cards are completely revamped, like Nakagawa the Tribute. Most of the cards just have a small change, though (i.e., a cost of +2 knowledge was decreased to +1 knowledge). It just depends on the card and how we determined it was over or under powered.
OK Jamey, now I'm more confused than I was before these hit the BGG Marketplace. Are these corrected versions or just alternate versions? In the side-by-side comparison you linked to, many of the cards have been totally changed and some have different costs for the actions. Apologies if this is answered on some BGG thread, but I thought you'd have a quicker response here. Thanks, -Phil.
There is only one edition of Euphoria, and there are two printings of it. We clarified the text of that tile in the second printing, but the meaning is unchanged.
The first printing says: You may not place workers on occupied construction sites.
The second printing says: You may not place workers on construction sites occupied by other players' workers.
There is such thing as asking for too much. I cherish my Euphoria backers, and I've sacrificed a lot for all of you. I destroyed the moulds of the original resource tokens for you. I printed 10,000 sets of updated recruit cards for you and included them for free in every Treasure Chest (and we don't make any money off the units sold through the BGG store--we incurred those costs). Asking for us to reprint a tile that is slightly reworded for clarification isn't fair to us or to the expansion itself. These tiles are printed on punchboards. We're not going to have an old tile take the spot on one of those punchboards in the expansion--those spots are for new tiles. We will not be printing that tile again.
The text of the Lounge of the Opulent Frugality in the first edition is wrong, and it has been corrected in the second edition. Is it too much asking for a reprint of that tile to be available to all the backers of the first edition?
@Aymaro: There's no change on that tile, just a clarification.
Thanks for the new cards, but we backers of the first edition still have a tile that needs to be corrected: the Lounge of the Opulent Frugality. Would you please include the updated version of this tile in the expansion?
Thanks for the notice, just completed the purchase :)
Also, I completely forgot to mention that Euphoria was featured on a recent article in The Campaigner!
@Benjamin: That's a great question, and I've updated the post to reflect that. No, the expansion will not include the updated cards because we've already printed more than enough to cover all first-edition copies. Plus, they would arrive so far in the future from now (it wouldn't be until fall '16 at the earliest that the new expansion would arrive).
Quick Question. Do you think the Kickstarter for the expansion for Euphoria will include the updated recruit cards? I am just curious as I may wait to pick up the recruits if so.
