So I don't own any versions of Viticulture or Tuscany but I am able to get the 2nd edition and tuscany seperate at my local FLGS.I don't want to be missing parts of tuscany that don't come in the VEE. Should I wait to get the essential edition, and buy tuscany seperate? Or do I buy the 2nd edition and Tuscany and the upgrade pack? Either way seems like if I want the entire experience there's going to be some overlapping.

If you want everything you'll be sorted buying the second edition and Tuscany. There is nothing offered in the Essential Edition which will not be in there.

The Essential Edition replaces the 2nd ed., so there's no problem there. But it would be better because some things are upgraded from the 2nd ed. Check out the details: VEE Details on Stonemaier Games Website.

I think I'm going to start with the essential edition and hope that there is a revised tuscany that follows it later. That should give me time to explore the few expansions that it includes.

Keep in mind that if they do a revised Tuscany, it will be missing 4 small expansions. So it will not be complete.

But if he buys the Essential Edition, he will already have those.

The one thing I'd try to track down right now are the metal coins. They are fantastic!

If you are a completionist, you'll be interested to know that there are four expansions that Stonemaier games has confirmed that they have no intention of re-printing:
• Arboriculture
• Formaggio
• Mafia
• Patronage

Keep in mind that a revised Tuscany is still an "if" and not for sure.

Nothing is final at this point, but if we do a new Tuscany, then those four will most likely be left out.

If the Tuscany "4 season board" simply would have come with Essential Edition... it would have really been all that was essential!
