Over on the thread "Lowering Defcon and War Event Question," four changes in the second edition were identified:

Korean War does not lower DEFCON

Red Scare/Purge is 4 OP, not 2

NATO forbids Brush War in US controlled Eureopean countries

Arab-Israeli War subtracts 1 from the roll if the US controlls Israel



However, a friend of mine tells me that on Consimworld the list of changes includes one other item:

UN Intervention can't be played as a Headline



Just FYI.

This is not a change from 1st edition. You can only play one card in the headline phase, and the UN event requires you to play 2.

There are a number of other changes that are in the rulebook, which can be downloaded. This includes some optional rules. The list above is only about the cards that were changed.

Where can you download that? Is there a new FAQ?

There's nothing in the most recent FAQ I have (the one that's here on BGG) about not being able to use UN Intervention as a Headline. I mean, the ruling makes sense, I just wasn't aware of it.

Thanks for mentioning this, I thought there was some sort of printing error on my cards (Korean War and Red Scare/Purge). Had these changes been expected? What do others think about this?
