It seems the new Goa has changed not only some rules, but some of the actual components. Is there talk of supplying those of us with the current version of Goa with an upgrade kit?

reading that other post it sounds like the only real component change that can't be changed with a sharpie is....

* New "2 colonist" B tile (this seems weak to me)
* New "exchange colonists for ships/spices" B tile (will allow spending those leftover colonists)
edit, the above is only one tile which allows both +2 colonists and exchange of colonists for ships or spices

?

I also think Eric Martin has a good answer at

Yeah, I'm not much a fan of "Sharpee mods". Bugs me. Actually, I'd probably just continue to play it the old way before I'd do that.

Appreciate the link to the other message. Bummer if there's no supplied upgrade path.yuk

True, but it could be even better.

Yep. No game is perfect (except maybe Go) and game design is an iterative process. I'm glad to see the balance changes that have been supported by the community for a while. Just wish the Puerto Rico deluxe edition had fixed the cost of some buildings.

Re: Upgrade path for current Goa owners?
We're getting onto a Puerto Rico thread but that did occur to me too. I understand why they didn't change the cost, eg. of the University. Doing so would create controversy - now there are two rulesets of PR floating around, and people will debate which is the "right" way to play.

Now for a deluxe edition, they could have issued BOTH - standard rules and optional adjustments - and kept everyone happy.

They did not. My letter was answered by French Z-man CEO Sophie Gravel rather than the Zev we all know and love.


"Hello Jonathan,

Sorry for not replying to your first email.

There are no " upgrade" kits available for Goa and there are no plans to have any.

Thank you for your interest in Zman Games !

Sophie"

Alas, my "interest" in Zman games has declined a bit.

Curses! Z-man could indeed create a very good upgrade kit by including:

4 new mats
This sheet of tiles

I feel as though we ought to petition 'em!

makes no sense for them to do so... they didn't produce original, why should they? want it that bad why not just buy the new edition?

This would provide a partial upgrade, but the expedition cards have also changed, so much so that the entire deck would need to be replaced. Also, some of the original tiles have been modified (Duty tiles are now worth 5 VP, for example).
