This should be a "compilation item", and thus excluded from the ranks!

My understanding is that it doesn't include Tuscany, just some parts of it.

Of course, I realize that people reading this part of the forum, will be Viticulture fans, and probably be conservative about any change about "their" game.

This edition is still a "compilation" of previously released materials. The whole idea of a compilation entry is to address editions like this.

The game in question has nothing to do with it. I just answered a question about expansion vs. integrates with over on Smash Up, and I've never played it. Contains, reimplements, expands, integrates with... these things all have very specific definitions.

If I wanted to buy an expansion, and I saw that it said it was included in XYZ, I would be unhappy if I bought XYZ and the expansion was not included. The same thing here... if I wanted Tuscany, and it showed as contained in the Essential Edition, I would be unhappy if I bought it and it didn't actually contain Tuscany. The description can and does say that some elements of Tuscany are included, but it does not contain Tuscany.

Also, this is the only currently available "base" edition of the game. The fact that it contains parts of the previous expansion (which is no longer in print as such) doesn't change the fact that if you want to buy Viticulture, this is what you're going to get. This reimplements the original base game, and Tuscany Essential (coming out later this year) reimplements the original Tuscany expansion (I don't know if the database reflects that, but it probably should.)

I agree. There is no longer a Viticulture 1st/2nd edition, this is it. I also wondered with the addition of Tuscany Essentials if Jamey will stop having Tuscany "1st" edition printed. I have Viticulture Essentials and Tuscany "original".

Jamey has repeatedly stated that Tuscany as originally formed, with all 11(12?) expansions will never be reprinted.
