I'm a quitter. I come from a long line of quitters. It's amazing I'm here at all.

Delighted so many people are enjoying their original iPad. I guess I just have to live with my faster sleeker next gen model.

Well, I must say I really like the idea of a streamlined second edition, as much as I love the first edition I think it was in need of a bit of simplification on some aspects, and I like the new art too!
Looking forward to try this and see if it can put my 1st edition copy in retirement (and with retirement I mean ebay )

Is it too late to chime in and say that I am glad I have the vastly...ahem.....vastly superior 1st Edition copy?? No??
OkaY....Well, I am glad that I do. I hope the 2nd edition does well though. Looks interesting.

The one with fewer features, like a touch-screen... Yeah, okay.

The wholesale changes in the "second edition" make it a completely different game. Removing the double-agents is like removing the rondel from Imperial, basically eliminating half the game.

I hear ya! Some people prefer games when they are in beta and are rough and bloated. It's kinda like how some people prefer 6 hour directors cuts of 2 hour movies.

I am so glad I was alteady reading The Sandman before it was finished and Neil Gaiman started licensing petty games from his rich, postmodern, interetextual work. I for one am sticking with my graphic novels and books which offer a more intellectually challenging time than moving cubes and cards around a board.

Spoiler (click to reveal)
Oh sorry, is this boardgamihg snobbery? I was looking for general cultural snobbery. Off to the opera now.

I had the first edition, tried to play it once and sold it.

Two weeks ago I had a chance to buy a signed copy of the 2nd edition. Already played four games so far and I am in love.

One of the best, underrated games of 2015.
