1st edition.

Needless to say I am extremely happy.

I play San Juan on the iPad all the time -- and this was my first exposure to the game. So I am used to the artwork of the 1st edition. I really like the artwork of the first edition.

I am aware of the change to Guild Hall and Gold Mine in the 2nd edition, and I can just make 4 little reference cards to hand out to each player, with the changes. So that way when they get either of the cards, they'll know to read the updated rules for the card on the ref card.

But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

In your world, I have another name. You must learn to know me by it. That was the very reason why you were brought to Narnia, that by knowing me here for a little, you may know me better there.

Thanks, I was really concerned just before I opened the package, because the ebay seller packaged it in a bag! As I pulled it out my eyes were on the corners and sides looking for wrinkles where it got smashed, but surprisingly it had non at all and was perfect--whew!

One thing that was interesting, the coffee cards are more of a gray, on the iPad, they look more green--anyone else notice this?

The prefecture has also had it's cost changed to 4, instead of 3.

But I really can't understand why you want to change those cards. I've played 350+ games of 1st edition San Juan, and we have never seen the need to change those cards.

Just play the game as designer and there won't be no need for reference cards, that most player will forget about when playing, and not realise until it's to late.

Yeah as I think about it more, I'll just play it as is.. like it is on the iPad. I've only ever played it on the iPad. Used to those rules. And prefecture costing 4.. wow that stinks.. love that card
