Hi!

Im very close to press a button and buy Antiquity. I've been searching threads about the new printing but I can't find proper answer for my question..

So what are the changes in the new edition? I heard rumors about some cards as an expansion in addition to some changes in components..?

Thanks!

From the splotter web page..

We have reprinted Antiquity this year with some significant updates to the materials, including:
- A smaller box!; dimensions are the same as the standard Splotter box, but 50% deeper to fit all the materials. The picture still shows the old box!
- The wooden pieces, which were simple cubes in past editions, have been redesigned to fit the theme
- Easy-to-handle plastic chits for pollution instead of cardboard tokens
- Harbours are now hex-sized rather than rectangles
- Some of the goods tokens which were hard to distinguish have been recoloured
- Better quality cardboard
- Better quality cutting

See our facebook page for pictures!

Thanks,

so the idea of exploration cards (expansion) didn't make it to the final version?

I'm curious where you heard about this. There's no cards in the game, and I haven't heard any rumours about any expansion.

The new version includes some more carts and resource chits I believe, in addition to what's mentioned above.

The game has exploration but that's not new. I've never heard of a possible expansion. Splotter doesn't really do expansions so I would be surprised.

I think, these two pictures on the geek give a pretty good impression of the mayor changes: workers (cubes vs. mini-meeple), fisheries (rectangle tiles vs double-hexes) and pollution (red tiles vs. grey plastic chits).

Old version:

If you want to check out the new edition in a live play-through, I would suggest watching the heavy cardboard play-through:

You will get a look at the quality. It looks good to me.

And Cannes has a mini expansion. But yeah thankfully the just release completed good games to begin with.
