PS Now if WOTC wants to make an exact copy of first edition, who am I to complain.
But that shouldn't be a problem. All that would be needed to solve such an issue would be to fold the three game board panels in half. Then stack the eight parts bins in two layers of four. That way you end up with all the goodies of the first edition in a package that is more in line with the boxes of the other A&A editions like Revised and AA42.
Check it out. If you do have a copy of the first edition, take the time to measure it out and see for yourself. It isn't rocket science. But then again, the way WotC/AH/Hasbro seems to do things, you sure get the impression that it is.
This is all just a pipe dream anyway. The "cheap and easy" version of Anniversary is already out there. It's called AA42 second edition. Sad.
Sure, it was limited edition and should stay that way - the reprint just needs a few tweaks to be truly different, while maintaining what makes AA50 the king of all AA games (e.g. change the art work, tinker with the map, dabble with the size...).
There is absolutely no reason not to publish the equivalent of AA50 while keeping the integrity of the limited edition - this happens all the time and is easier than many here seem to realize (think repackaging, marketing...).
What are you waiting for WOC/AH? Please don't piss off your fans - instead, provide supply for this demand and make us go crazy happy all over again

Don't tell people how to do things, tell them what to do and let them surprise you with their results.
