What is the difference between the 2nd edition and 3rd edition of the Factions expansion? Both are available online. Just curious if there are any big changes between editions.

3rd edition lacks the tuck boxes.

That's the biggest change.

Yes and it is an unfortunate cheap out. Count me as a very unhappy customer who has tuck boxes for everything except what came in this expansion. It was an unfortunate decision from my perspective.

Sadly I'm in agreement, was very surprised to find no tuckbox

I can live with/without the tuckbox. But is everything else in 2nd edition aesthetically equivalent to AF 5th edition? Notably the bases for the 5th player are the ones with the transparent globe, right?

2nd edition Factions has the transparent colony domes, and is compatible with 4th edition base game. I don't know what changed for the 5th edition base game other than the box art (I have 4th edition), but in terms of colony pieces it should be compatible. I think those and the tuck boxes are the only Factions components that need to match aesthetically, as the faction boards are separate player boards, and the Agenda cards are a new deck to the base game. Did change anything with the iconography or the fuel pieces in 5th edition? That would affect art compatibility if so.
