I'm looking at a used copy of El Grande Decennial edition (2006). What is the difference between this and the Big Box version? If I can get a great deal on Decennial, would that be worth it?

The older edition is more than enough. I found the newer edition to be another case of a needless big box edition.

Do note that the first printing, which seems to have been from 2006, had some minor card issues.

I don't get to play the game enough anyway, but I've never played with the expansions in Decennial.

I second Matt. The Big Box has every expansion ever made, but most of them aren't all that awesome.
