Same as 2nd edition, but maps are covered by plastic for reuse. Only 3 boards instead of 6 of each map. Corrected by Tipp-Ex in the rules.
Inlay is less deep (because the 3 maps don't need so much space).
May have a sticker on box front:
"7. Platz der Auswahlliste Spiel des Jahres
Spiel des Jahres 1980 Kritikerpreis"
I assume this edition is very rare.
