I am not currently planning on buying this new edition, but would be interested in applying the new rules to my old edition (which I have never played! despite it being one of the first games I bought when getting back into this hobby...)
How easy is it to play the new streamlined rules with the old set? I'd love a list of quick changes that need to be made.
The original is a masterpiece of back-stabby, double-thinky fun. Folks cry about loosing turns and getting robbed, but that sort of makes the game- the stakes are high! I hope you get to play it soon and have as much fun as I have- this is one of those games that "goes to 11."
