What are the differences between the two versions? I am looking at acquiring a 1st ed game.

Thanks

I played the 2nd edition and after playing it later checked out the 1st...the 2nd edition is far better..mostly a lot of errata was corrected in the 2nd, and the map is better....and I played it solo 4 times and face-to-face 5 times...great game!

I'm sure others can elucidate the differences far better than I could.

I too have played the new 2nd edition twice and enjoyed more than the 1st, but there are still sum issues and errata.

Here on the geek some of the errata is posted and I will say there are some play balance issues (it is a Richard Borg game) but I still enjoyed playing it.

I thought that the naval invasion rules in the first edition had some problems and were to be addressed in the second edition.
