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?

Also one of my favourite games so I chose to get the deluxe upgrade. Components are superb - the coins alone make it worthwhile in my opinion. Some people don't like the map as much but I personally find it much clearer. Rules changes are fairly minimal - but that's a good thing when the original is so finely tuned.
All in all it's definitely not something you have to get if you already have the first edition - but if it's really your favourite game then you will definitely get your money's worth!

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.
