Hi,

we just noticed, that my copy of the game came with the reference sheets. My friend does not have those sheets, and they are neither listed on the back of his box.
Upon closer examination we discovered a "-2" at the end of my product code, so we assumed, that my copy is the 2nd edition.

Does anybody know if there are further differences between editions?

I don't. I do know that the reference sheets were a response to complaints that the text on the location boards could be hard to read from across the table. I hadn't heard about other changes (I have the same version you do) but I think it's more of a 2nd printing with reference sheets included rather than a 2nd edition with significant changes.

Yup, pretty sure the only change was the inclusion of the reference sheets.

Does anybody know why the reference sheets have the perforations?

Yeah, that was a weird choice. I think so you could make a tiny stack of separate reference sheets. Then you could just pull out the ones that corresponded to the locations currently in play to save table space. I have never separated mine.

You could be right there, but I don’t know why they just didn’t amend the card art to have a more solid background behind the text.
