Does anyone know if the new edition includes any of the cards from the Spanish, Czech or two Polish expansions? They offered quite a bit of variety to the Wonders and Leaders.

It does not, but they haven't ruled out such additions in future expansions.

There are reasons for this, Vlaada discussed it somewhere, I cant remember.

So much time was needed in development and balancing of just the core leaders and wonders, if we had included any of the expansions, the game would not have been ready in time. But yes, not ruled out in future.

Turns out Esseb did touch the flag. Don't tell him I said so though.

Were there ever different "nation" expansions? Now that we have a new edition I would love to see different starting player boards for different nations.

Nope. Your nation becomes different once you start taking cards. Other games do this, but it's not been done in TTA. Not sure it would work, but maybe.

I feel like part of what makes TTA so wonderful is how quickly and meaningfully nations become asymmetric just by playing the game.

Nations don't feel vanilla and samey after like turn 3. They feel like the nation that built the Colossus under the leadership of Hammurabi very quickly.
