I already own the AH edition and the Columbia Games 3rd edition. I would like to play the 4th edition. The terrain blocks and rules look pretty cool.

Does anyone know if Columbia games is offering an upgrade kit for folk like me? It should have the terrain blocks and stickers and the new rules. I'd be willing to pay for an upgrade, but my wife will murder me if I get yet another copy of this game. She will not understand the fine points of difference between each edition. All she will see is yet another game coming into the house to clutter it up...and worst of all for her...its a game I already have 2 copies of.

So please...is there an upgrade kit?

Pack 3rd edition in a box in front of your wife, say you have sold the copy to some German bloke and order 4th edition (send box to a hidden corner of the attic or make someone happy with it).

That's the spirit!

No upgrades... go for the full-Monty!

They play differently enough to be different games altogether, and yes there has been a thread on the merging of editions on BGG.

You won't regret having both, and anyway...THE BOX HAS A TOTALLY DIFFERENT DESIGN SO THE WIFE WILL NEVER KNOW ITS THE SAME GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!

There are no components in common between the different editions, so an upgrade kit would not make sense. There's nothing left of the old farmer's hammer if your replace the handle and the head.
