    I agree. The original release is better. Why are we doing horizontal releases again?

    This one is supposed to be an exact depiction of the game board shown in the movie not a rehash of zavvis old design.

    Zavvis was based off the game board also but the image was changed to accommodate the orientation of the steelbook case.

    New release is superior imo as it is right out of the movie

    Proper orientation + much better embossing on this release + 4k, I'm thinking this is the one to have.

    I didn’t think the original steel would be beat but it always annoyed me the middle part was blank.
    This looks so much better

    The same reason that Lawrence of Arabia is better 2.35:1 than it is 1.33:1
    Some things need the widescreen.
    It feels more appropriately like the game box than the Zavvi version.

    Its a little different talking about the AR of a film rather than the horizontal vs vertical of a steelbook. Majority of people don't like horizontal steelbooks including myself.

    It's made to look like a board game box which is ....HORIZONTAL.
    This is one of the times where it makes perfect sense.

    I'm keeping watch on the listing to do a small group buy.

    If any folks happen to see it come back, please tag me in a post so I'll get the alert, I'll order some as soon as they are back.

    @apsmith21 Andy, at least I can add it to cart and go to the checkout page (for me, two copies max per order).

    Yeah, it's for in store pickup only right now - my local store had one copy and that was it.

    Given the volume that's being asked for I'll need to do an online order

    Store pick-up option is available but it does not give me the $1.00 off for choosing that option.:(

    Correct, they start mailing out 1/14/18 and can be used until 2/3/18. It doesn't mention it when you complete your order, i guess you just have to trust it. But i think it will be all good, might just screenshot it to be safe.
