The game looks great and I will probably buy it. I've never played the old version.
I have a concern regarding the rules for this new version. Apparently the Greek was very vulnerable in the old version, due to its position in the map, making them very vulnerable. This is why in the new version authors provide Greece with an extra 2 points when deffending. That look huge.

My main concern is that this could make sense in a 5 players game. However, if the game is played with only 4 or 3 nations, perhaps Greece is now too strong, considering that the disavantage of its initial position is now reduced.

Have the authors think about this?

However, considering the current situation of Greece (sourrounded by the troika), I would be in favour of giving them an extrasupport

What do you think?

My guess is - since I haven't played it yet - that any player would be hard pressed if 2 others ganged up on them. There are also Heros and Wonders that may mitigate the Greek defense bonus. Cheers!
