Amazon has the deluxe edition right now for $69.99. The original is my favorite board game I own. Is it worth picking this version up or are the improvements and design changes insignificant?
Yes. I have the original with the builders expansion and i would say the builders expansion makes the game better. i would never play the game without the builders and the new capital buildings now. they open the game up and give you more things to think about; more ways of getting points. after many plays of the base game, having more options open to us was definitely refreshing.
