Are the components just the difference or is the actual game completely redesigned?

Also, will the game be available at online retailers?

I have preordered the new edition while I still own the first. I was very impressed the time I discovered the game back in 2013.

Wait. What?

Above Rolf notes only esthetic and rules changes.

Please clarify what you mean by "completely different" Clay.

There are no actual added gameplay elements requiring physical components like there was with Arkwright and Lignum are there?

Hi All,

Here is a brief synopsis of the major gameplay changes:
The game now plays 2 - 4 players. There are rules for each player count.
There is no longer a scoring for majority for each of the 4 shares.
Money has been replaced with workers.
Area cards have been fine-tuned.
The Wildcatters and Refinery scoring has been tweaked.
There is no 5th round of scoring.
Paying back loans is only possible in the 5th round and at the end of the game.
The shares are now used to purchase Consolidation Chips which give you a benefit at the beginning of every round + end game victory points.

The rules will be uploaded shortly -- I'm excited for you all to see these exciting changes!
The game plays very smoothly and at a solid pace. The experience provides for tense moments throughout the game. Hope you enjoy

Thanks for the additional details Clay. So will first edition owners be able to adopt all of the gameplay changes just by downloading the rulebook, or are some of these component dependent, and if so which?

I'm curious, do the rule changes have any impact on game length?

The rulebook should suffice, except for the Consolidation Chips.

Is is possible to get a list with the front and back values of the Consolidation Chips, so that I can use them with my first edition?
