With all the different versions/expansions, maybe someone can help.

I purchased an older version of the game. The components are unused and in pristine shape. The box is a mess (split corners).

1 Rule book says 4th edition
2 Advanced and optional rules say 4th edition
3 Counter sheets say 5th edition (1989)
4 There is a nice color insert titled, 5th Edition Countersheet Notes
5 The Maps have a date of 1989
6 Production chart says 4th edition, copyright 85,86,88
7 Game charts and CRT's say 5th edition, copyright 85,86,88,89
8 Errata sheet is dated 1 August 1990

So is this a fifth edition of the game?

Sounds like 5th edition, yes.

Thanks - bought it on eBay, so I wasn't sure with the mix of 4th and 5th edition labels on the various components.

All 5th edition came with some sort of 4th and 5th component/labels mix, IIRC! Even the box, I think.

Read the rules and finally got into the game components (this was an ebay purchase, counters mostly punched) the game only came with the odd numbered counter sheetsblush

caveat emptor!

Ha - bought another 5th edition copy with all the counters but no maps, but combining the two, I now have a complete 5th edition with duplicate charts. Lets see what this game is all about.
