Does anyone have the new printing with the "Mounted Map" and do you like it?

Does this map differ from the previously offered "Deluxe Map" some people were complaining about?

Also does this printing come with the version 2014 rules set as is available for download?

Thanks,

M

The mounted map is of a piece with the rest of the GMT mounted maps (e.g., the COIN games, the reissues of Wilderness War and Empire of the Sun etc), and is extremely nice, imo. I'm guessing the 'deluxe map' is like some of the other GMT deluxe maps, and is a heavy cardstock map rather than paper.

I would need to check, but I'm almost certain the latest printing comes with the 2014 rules.

It's a very worthwhile edition, with thicker counters along with everything else.

You want the mounted map and the newest edition comes with one. Also includes color player aid charts and thicker counters. Very nice edition.

The 'Deluxe' map isn't. It's just light card stock. The mounted map is what you get in a standard board game, actually a bit thicker with quality printing.

I own the 2015 mounted map version and it is, of course, very high quality. I highly recommend it.
