I see GMT released some sort of collectors edition of this game. Would someone tell me the differences between this and the second edition? (I bought my copy new in 2012; I believe it's the deluxe edition). Obviously, I'm a huge fan of this game. Just wondering if I'm missing out on anything...

I own it and it's rife with problems.

I bought it, there were card errors and broken minis, so I passed it on and kept my perfectly functional and practical deluxe edition.

I own it. GMT has fixed the couple of errors from the printing.\ by sending out free replacements so its perfect now.

Yup, card errors were fixed and freely replaced and mini's were easily fixed with a drop of super glue. I only had to fix one or, If you cried loud enough, GMT would send out replacement minis.

I have since upgraded some of the mini's. Just need to mount them on to spare blocks the game came with and paint them.

CE is the only version to include the 8 Kickstarter promo cards, the Turn Zero expansion along with the alternate Space Race track.

Not quite. I didn't buy the collector's edition, but did get the promo cards, Turn Zero expansion and alternate Space Race via Kickstarting the computer version of the game.

Exactly, you had to back the KS campaign to get them.

Expansion and promos do not come in any other versions of TS.

Hmmmm. Yes, I did have to back the KS campaign. However, the card backs match my deluxe set, not the collectors edition, and therefore do come for other versions of Twilight Struggle.

That was my point. The expansions and promos may be rare for the deluxe edition, but are available if and when any owner wishes to sell. So, the original poster might be able to get hold of them to match his Twilight Struggle set.

I like the board and influence markers. I think the tanks look tacky and cartoonish (they should've used T-54/55 and the M46, or T-72 and M60). The color scheme for the tanks, also, I just didn't like.

Thanks for the responses, all. I think I'll stick with my deluxe edition. Hasn't let me down! I really wish GMT would hurry it up with their release of 1960. They've had more than enough time to polish it up.

More like extreme HYPE Edition from a company that can not seem to get their stuff together these days. As a loyal fan, must say very disappointed as they are one of the few to carry the torch for the masses.

This is a "want to have", not a "need to have" edition. If you're happy with what is already on your shelves, probably not. If you are a completist or want a fancy new version, then probably so.

Can be purchased separately as of today to match any non-KS edition.
