Default How to tell if I have kickstarter version?

I recently brought Ogre Designer's Edition in sealed shrink warp today. I am not sure if it is a Kickstarter or retail version. On the back of the box, inside the shrink warp, there is an extra counters sheets. Does the retail version have that too? If it may not be the Kickstarter version but happen to have extra counter sheets, what kind of sheets are they? I am not breaking the shrink warp yet. Making it very precious to me. Thank you everyone for your time replying.

All copies of Ogre Designer's Edition have the counter sheets shrinkwrapped outside the box itself; they just won't fit until punched. The Kickstarter edition has a sticker on the front shrinkwrap identifying it. It's a huge black sticker with a red Ogre and "Kickstarter Edition" right on it, usually in the upper-left area of the front of the box, right under "Game Design by Steve Jackson."

There's actually two different stickers that you will see on the Shrink Wrap, either a yellow-on-black or a red-on-black Ogre with the words "kickstarter edition". the retail version has no such sticker. The only difference is one came with a copy of Ogre Pocket Edition, and the other did not.

They look like this:

I can't remember the difference between the red and yellow Kickstarter editions. Was it the inclusion of Ogre Pocket and an extra Targets Go Boom set?

Just Pocket Ed. Both had TGB sheets. The "extra" sheets were part of the $150 pledge level

So if it's already been removed from the shipping carton and the copy of Ogre Pocket gone on walkabout, the color of the sticker doesn't matter?

nope. Pocket Ed was packed outside the shrink-wrap. They are identical inside the plastic.

Alright, thank you everyone who replied. Now I know that I have a retail version, not the Kickstarter version. :( At least I got it at a good deal.

Also, Check out the counter manifest thread. In particular, post #3. It lists what the differences are between the Retail and KS edition contents. The short version is:

1x K1 (Targets Go Boom 1)
1x L1 (Targets Go Boom 2)
1x M1 (KS Exclusive Overlays 1)
1x M2 (KS Exclusive Overlays 2)
1x P1 (Vulcans & Friends 1)
1x Q1 (Vulcans & Friends 2)
You will probably be interested in the Counter Manifest on BGG, too.

Thank you, GP, for your usual astute help.

Yes, those threads are excellent in detailing what should be included in the sets.
