I can get a 2009 edition in a good trade, just wondering if there is any reason to go for the 2012 edition?

Ooh a little higher, now a bit to the left, a little more, a little more, just a bit more. Oooh yes, that's the spot!

Short answer: No

Longer answer:

2009 and 2012 probably no difference. Maybe minor rules rewording.

If you went further back than 2009 there could be:
d10-1 The 29 Power Plant changed from powering 3 cities to 4 cities.
d10-2 Fat nukes versus skinny nukes. The nuclear pieces have changed size at some stage, but I am quite certain that was before 2009.

At some point, early on, naked-wood-colored houses were swapped out and black houses were swapped in.

Is your score positive? You win! (Some players win more than others.)

There exists a printing that has a sentence or two in the rules summary on the back that could be interpreted as "In phase 2, if you're building the first house in a city, it only costs you $10 and you don't have to pay the connection cost" or "The connection cost to build the first house in a city in phase 2 is only $10 regardless of the printed connection cost." So, watch out for that.

Ooh yes, my original set has naked wood houses, although the rules say black. The Mégawatts set purchased in 2009 has black houses.
