This may be addressed elsewhere. Apologies if I missed it.
With the 2nd printing now on its way to game tables, is the 2017 edition an upgrade worth buying if I've already got the 2014 edition? Or is it a straight reprint?
Sal is one of the most active designers I've seen on these forums and the living rules are constantly kept up to date. (Much appreciated Sal!) So it seems 2nd edition is more for those who missed out the first time.
So what's the verdict?
Thanks.

I'll let others state their opinion on this.

However, I would point out that the Living Rules do need updating as apparently a version control error happened and so the Living Rules aren't up to 2nd edition yet. That said, there are no terrible errors between them that a question couldn't fix.

I pre-ordered the new rulebooks and player charts. But Sal, is it correct that there were no changes to counters or other components? (Apart from the hard-mounted map of course.)

Edit: No, I didn't. modest

I don't see an option on their P500 page to order the new books and charts. Am I just missing it or do you have a connection there?

No, it was a brain-fart by me. I just ordered 2nd edition rules for US Civil War.

All games that start with "U" look the same to me, apparently.

Ok, thanks. It would have been nice to order these too.

I also ordered the ones for the U.S. Civil war.

Kind of surprised as I was expecting my second edition copy to have mounted maps however I can now see that was an additional P500 item.

Wait, have i got this right: The second printing of 2017 does not include mounted maps? they are only available separately?
