I have a soft spot for the original Kickstarter edition, but unless you plan to play a lot of Galapagos games (competitive variation for grownups), I would recommend the Thinkfun version.
So you can't play Galapagos with the ThinkFun version?
I have both copies but have yet to play. Was thinking about parting with one of them. I really like the ThinkFun parts but now I don't know what to do.
