That tarotworld.com shop has a lot of different ones.

http://www.tarotworld.com/shop/searchresult.html

From what Wheel has said I would almost wager the Premium one in the orange box is only one with the dried mud backs and no copyrights.

This size, that size, big size, small size. I'm about to go bananas.

It does seem like a strange approach. Usually they'll introduce one thing and test the market, if it's successful they expand on it. This time it seems like they did it in reverse.

I learnt the hard way. My local shop had this one in stock. It looked like the box from the initial post, except it was in English. Good sign (I thought).

I bought it then instantly regretted it. It has a similar box to the Premium Edition, except it says "Deluxe" edition - which I suppose could be "Premium" in English if you see what I mean. Everything else looked the same.

It had the same release date as the one on amazon (April 2016) but it is just the large sized one with the Rosicrucian Cross backs and typeface lettering. Not good...

We need an ISBN - this thread is becoming very confusing. I was trying to check the ISBN with the amazon link in the shop but couldn't find an ISBN listing.

Well fingers crossed! I ordered from the Amazon link I found, it ships from Germany and I've em'd the seller to confirm the dimensions.... hoping for the best!

That was my thinking. Sorry you found out the hard way. It always sucks...

In Amazon US, the ONLY listing with ISBN numbers is the Giant's:

ISBN-10: 3038194395
ISBN-13: 978-3038194392

I haven't checked the Amazon UK or the Amazon Germany listings, though. Maybe there is more data there.

I think the only foolproof way of truly knowing is if Wheel of Fantastic - or somebody who has received it - posts the ISBN. It isn't the pocket version that he/she received, is it?

OK. Amazon.com has one that is orange and one that is white. The white weighs more than the orange and is a few dollars more. But they are the same dimensions. Can we assume the dimensions are wrong and the white one is standard and the orange is pocket size and the white is standard because of the price being more? (Head spinning like Linda Blair)

I'm thinking of getting this version. It's English and 70mm x 120mm. I just have to hope for the right backs.

That's what I wanted to get too but I was unable to place an order. It does not accept my post code. I emailed them
