On the kickstarter there was a update talking about a new edition with new art and some new cards to tie in with the digital edition, or something. Not the kickstarter itself which is a reprint.. but a NEW edition. I was expecting it to be released at essen then that didn't happen.

Dose anyone know what I am talkign about or did I dream it?

You didn't dream it, but I believe CGE said "at soonest, it'll be out for Essen 2015 if all goes well".

I wouldn't wait. The original is absolutely phenomenal. It's a top 3 ranked game for a reason. Who knows what a new edition will bring. Granted I'll be buying it but I'm already a fan .

I already have it from when it was originally published. In the 2014 version did they fix the VP count around the side, or is it still missing 90-99? Thought it pretty hilarious they reprinted it before with out fixing that.

Also the game wouldn't hurt to have better art. I think this "new" version is baddy needed. As there are physical errors on the board and the art looks like standard clip art from goggle image search.

It is a real shame as the game is beyond good, it is just fantastic on all levels, but it is hard to get new players excited for it at a glance.. defiantly needs new art.

I'm thinking of trying this game out, but it's not a high priority because I'm planning to buy some different games with shorter game times. Is it a good idea to get this on sale or wait for the new edition?

That error was only in the first Eagle Games printing. I have their second printing, done in 2008, which fixed the errors from the first printing including the score track, but also introduced some new errors. The third edition in 2009 fixed those errors and as far as I know there have been no errors since. This reprint without fixing errors that you speak of doesn't exist.

regardless of taking 3 print editions to fix all its errors I still think it needs a design overhaul.

According to the head of Eagle Games, the 2014 "Kickstarter version" is just a reprint of the 2009 version, as Kickstarter backers have confirmed.

No need to wait and deprive yourself.

I too am going to wait for a new edition of this game prior to buying. The artwork looks ugly and I'm really hope that a more premium edition will be released now that interest in the game is high once again. The digital version should help them take the artwork in a newer/better direction.

Interest in the game has been high for 8 years, and is no higher now...

Maybe not at the time of this post, but it's certainly getting more interest now as details of the new version start to leak out

True, although I have to say I'm ambivalent about half the changes and dislike the other half based on what I know so far.

I'm certainly not seeing a reason to rebuy a game that's pretty perfect for me as is. I may try and grab one of your demo slots at Expo.

yeah I found it

• New Art
• easier play tactic cards
• Military cards are now discarded at the end of the turn
• Now is possible to upgrade from temples to theatres
• Now Corruption is before production









I really hope the boards are not final they look pretty bad... Also I see this in a lot of games, all they need to do is add a little more space and the cards wouldn't all bunch up like that. , but I like the new cards and stuff.

The boards are not final.

They are also tweaking a lot of cards.

I'd rather have expansions for the current game than another version to buy all over again.
