I'm asking if this new Essential edition will totally replace the 2nd edition Viticulture because right now where I live I can currently find Tuscany to purchase, but I cannot find a version of Viticulture to purchase. Obviously if this Essential edition is the only version I will be able to get, then buying Tuscany seems redundant because the Essential edition includes some of the modules that are already in Tuscany.

Edit: Sorry I guess I didn't phrase this as well as I should have. What I meant is will Stonemaier Games stopping making the 2nd edition of Viticulture and only make the Essential edition in its place.

Correct. VEE is the Second Edition plus a few modules from Tuscany.

Hi Peter. This page on the Stonemaier website explains the differences in detail. http://stonemaiergames.com/games/viticulture/essential-editi...

Also note that only some of the modules from Tuscany will be in the Essential Edition. There are three modules that a lot of people like that they are not including (the extended board, structures, and special workers). And there are four modules from Tuscany that they will never print again.

See this for a good breakdown: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1466205/case-tuscany

Edit: But I should add that they have said that they might print some of the best missing Tuscany modules in an expansion later.

The completist in me wanted it all. I doubt I will be using Tuscany much, but knowing that I can is good enough and worth the investment.
