Now it looks like the second edition is being pushed back until January, is it worth picking up a 1st edition second hand, or waiting for the second edition?

I realize the differences (wooden meeples, fancy dice, interrogation deck, etc..) but I’m interested if first edition owners think the changes are worth waiting for.

Thanks for your opinions! cool

I have the first edition and backed the campaign for the upgrade kit. The new interrogation cards and modified board will outdate it for sure. New dice and meeples are meh, I bought minis for Hitler and deputies.

I think the question is simply exactly how desperate you are to get it. I play ASL, thus I am used to waiting literally years for reprints and so waiting a few months is no big deal from my perspective. That said, while I have ordered the upgrade kit because I'm a completist, the first edition is really perfectly serviceable as is, so if you want to get it right away, I would say that you won't have many regrets about buying a first edition copy.

I just ordered it from Miniature Market rather than buy a 1st edition. I now reserve right to start complaining about the wait.
