How to get 2nd edition except for Dominion and Intrigue

Hi, I'm surprised I haven't found anyone asking. I guess it's not possible that I'm the only one wondering, so it must be in here somewhere. I'm probably just terrible at searching.

My question is: How can I get my hands on physical copies of second edition versions of Hinterlands, Prosperity and the promos? According to the wiki, these are the sets currently available in second edition print (in addition to the labeled Dominion and Intrigue).

Amazon can't say if they have the first or the second edition versions (and they've told me to ask RGG!?!), my FLGS currently can't get them, as the distributor doesn't know how to distingush the different versions. I've searched extensively (IMHO) for these online, but I can't find anyone selling these, or knowing that they're selling these. Can anyone please help?

If you're looking in person, the back of the box should say "requires Base game or Base Cards pack to play", whereas the first edition would call Intrigue a standalone set.  You can also check the copyright - 2nd edition should be copyright 2016.

Online, if it costs a normal amount ($30-50), it's probably 2nd edition.  If it costs something exorbitant (~$100), it's probably 1st edition.

Contrary to popular belief, I do not run the wiki all on my own.  There are plenty of other people who are actively editing.  Go bother them!

Thanks a lot for the quick reply. I visited my FLGS the other day and, having read DXV's comment about looking for a reference to the "first edition" of Intrigue, it was clear they didn't get the updated version in their latest shipment.

When it comes to costs online, I'm afraid "probably" isn't going to cut it for me. I have all sets and promo cards. The cards that are translated to Norwegian are included twice in my collection, in both their English and their Norwegian versions, and I also have a Japanese Alchemy. I'm a completist, and risking getting the first edition versions again isn't that appealing, especially because I have to pay loads of money for shipping to Norway in addition to the cost of the game itself.

Does anyone know for sure where I can get the versions I'm looking for? Maybe someone who has already bought them, either online or from a LGS? BGG lists the promos (well, most of them) for sale, but only in their original versions.

BTW, I hope I didn't come across as ungrateful. I really appreciated your reply, but it just wasn't exactly what I was looking for.  :)

I can verify that I have purchased the 2nd editions of Hinterlands and Prosperity from Amazon, which arrived earlier today. They both say "(or the 1st edition of Intrigue)" on the back of the box, which is the giveaway.

Also the Prosperity set has the nice new Platinum and Colonies.
