Subject: Should I get 1st Ed or 2nd Ed? rss

I played the 2nd Edition of Evolution a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it.

I managed to find a store selling it but I found the original 1st edition as well, with two expansions (Flight and Continents) and the catch is the 1st Edition + Expansions altogether is much cheaper than what I could get the 2nd Edition (base, no Flight or any expansions) for.

Is it worth getting 2nd Edition over the first edition? What are the differences, other than the art?

As i know, the only difference is in rules and text of cards. For example, HIBERNATION in 2nd edition may not be used in last round, PIRATE may be used while player makes basic action (just once a round) ets. You may take cheaper, but load modern rules.

Expansions were released while the 1st edition was not produced animore.

Great, thanks. I may end up getting 1st Edition then, and just read up online for 2nd Ed rules.

Food values were also tweaked in the second edition, so you'll need to address that. At one point, you could purchase the 2ed cards online from NSG to update a 1ed version. You might check to see if that's still a possibility.

It seems to me you are talking about another game http://i3.bgplanet.ru/1/3368/33674854/afacdb/99-jev-pole-jpg.... But the Thread is dedicated to this one http://s4.cdnproductmain.mosigra.ru/517/288/1-04_800x500.jpg.
