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.

Thanks!

There's no rules change, the changes all come with the new character and district cards.

Don't you think the original rules are streamlined enough? Why would you want to use different rules for a game that has been played millions of times over the past 16 years?

For the same reason changes were made in the new edition?

That said, if the only change is to go to 7 buildings, that's easy enough to implement!


Thanks

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."

This was in the old version too. It is listed as a variant for a shorter game.

Thanks to everybody for the feedbacks.

As far as I have understood the game is a bit faster since it use the 7 districts variant and because there are more possibilities to build more than one district in a turn.

In our group the main issue was usually that the characters' selection took ages but I suppose maybe a 6 (or even 5) district variant applied to the old edition would make it more or less equivalent, in term of time lenght, to the new edition. Has somebody already tried ??

Yes, I've seen threads in the variants forum. Though if people take ages selecting characters then I doubt anything will make the game fun. We had the same with the old edition, after not playing for a couple of years then playing the new version people were quicker. I don't really know why.
