I favor Euros, but I like pretty much all games.

I've been wanting a copy of Kingsburg for a long time, but haven't been wanting to pay $100+. I gotta say... I might go with the $100+. The original seems prettier still.

On the other hand getting all the modules at once is nice...

I think the new looked just as good as the old and will by far offer more varied game play than the original. The new module alone would sell me regardless of the game's art.

Any details yet on the "Alternate Advisor Rewards"?

I gotta say; those dice look nice.

I wonder if the Alternate Advisor Rewards module can be purchased or faked without buying the second edition.

Since the original unveiling/leak, the game board looks a lot nicer.

The dice look a lot nicer, the player boards look fine.

If I didn't already have the original and the expansion I would be plenty happy to pick this up. Kingsburg was never a very pretty game.

Good points on the variance of gameplay. Ah heck it'll be easier to get this one too.

Indeed. And don't forget the nicely shaped resources. I already own the game and the expansion, but I'm tempted.

I found a copy of the original base game for a reasonable price after it went out of print. I was disappointed when I found out the expansion would be included in the reprint since I didn't want to have to buy the base game again just for the expansion, but the nicer components are making it look like it might be worth it.

Usually that's the first thing people compliment is the art

The new dice are indeed very pretty and reminiscent of the Q-Workshop upgraded ones. I wonder if they were commissioned to manufacture the dice for the edition.

I think I like the art of the original game better. It was very clean, bright and colorful.... this new art is drab and sort of depressing. My buddy has this game and when I heard they were reprinting and with the expansion built in I thought it would be an easy sell for me.... after looking at it...for $60... I'll probably pass on this one.

We, the designers of Kingsburg, explicitely asked that it was possible to purchase the Alternate Advisor Rewards module on its own without buying the second edition of the game, as a way to respect people that purchased the first edition.

So, I truly hope it will be as such...
