Are there any significant differences? Thinking about TS, some non-English editions got a different card or so (I think there are 6 total). I wonder if there are any differences like this for 1989?

I did try to find out information about differences in Polish version, but outside some box art / localization obvious and unimportant elements, the only thing people mentioned was retheming of the "Tienanmen Square track" into something European-themed (I am not sure exactly what they mean, since no review discusses this in detail, but at the very least they imply it is just a theme change, not mechanic).

Are there any other differences anyone is aware of?

The Polish version had a set of family rules. I never found out what they were. I would have liked to try them out since no one in my family will play the game. I don't think there were any card changes. We never made any.

The family variant is described as a friendly variant and is described on pages 5-6 of the Polish manual, available here (the TR subsections). Unfortunately, it is lengthy enough translating it would take me half an hour or more, and since I haven't event played the game, nor do I own it, forgive me for not being motivated enough to do it. I would hope another Polish speaker who is fan of the game can help you here.

Google Translate isn't terrible at achieving a rough translation however.

Thanks for the link. I read through the card notes and they did change the Foreign Television card to Radio Free Europe, but the effects are the same.

That's hilarious. You are the designer of the game and nobody from your family wants to play it with you. Never crossed my mind...

Guess you need to design a game with your family in mind!
