I recently acquired a copy of the 1st edition, and I was wondering if the 2nd edition rule changes improve the game. I'm not looking to start another discussion about the HH or whether the rules changes are or are not effective at neutralizing it - I think there has already been enough written about that. Assuming the HH is not being pursued, what effect do the 2nd edition rules have on the game, for better or worse?

The French 'bateaux' card gets taken out and I believe Fort Beausejour receives a ship symbol. Both would aid the French somewhat.

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars, where you will be forced to drift aimlessly farther into the vast, empty abyss of space until a lack of food, water and oxygen causes you to succumb to Death's cold embrace.

Not being able to reserve locations is a bit less thematic, but mechanically seems to be for the best. Obviously that's a trivial thing to house rule in either direction though.

They don't make the game worse, if that's what you are asking, but they don't make much of a difference. But Given it's costless to use the2nd edition rules, then I would. Mike
