So, I'm a little confused about all the different versions.
Are the components the same in every version? I mean of course the numbers and the values on the cards / tokens, not the artwork.
Are there any differences there or it's just the rules that have minor changes every once in a while.

I'm most curious about the difference between the IELLO and the older versions, but I've heard that the older version also had a couple of different variants.

The difference that I've heard of is that some versions have you round up and some have you round down when taking back your losing bid.

Artwork varies but I still prefer the old one better.

The old one has coins with value 1000, 2000.
The new version has only 1000 coins.

In Fred/Gypron edition, the $1K and $2K coins were the same size
In Uberplay edition, $2K was larger.


I don't know if these were in the rules or just variants, but I've heard of some editions where the next player could call/match the previous bid, as opposed to beat it (like in Poker).

Another one had players take back half the number of tokens (rounded up or down), so you could do some odd things with the $2K token to your favor.
