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!
