It's been a while since I played the first printing, but I just got the second today and I don't think they've changed anything... Definitely not anything you would be able to see in a picture, maybe if someone had both printings for a side by side...

I can't believe some one hasn't posted pics to get some easy geek gold.

Not those. I am talking about the changes to the base game with the reprint.

I am told that the components changed. I hear rumors of:

- A tile instead of a card for the 2nd/3rd scoring info

- Improvements to the tile graphics

- Improved pieces

Can someone post side by side photos of the old and new games?

Wouldn't this require someone to have (or have access to) both versions. Considering how difficult it was to get a hold of the first edition - this might be a smaller than expected group of folks.

Sigh. You are right. I have the old edition. Another gamer in my area has the new edition. I asked him to bring it this weekend. With luck I will be able to take some pictures. We will see.

Just pictures of the new version would be nice. Surely someone out there wants some easy GG.

Perhaps they've been declined as too similar to the first edition pics?

But there is a seperate entry with no pics in it. Plus at least some of the components are different so I would hope the geekmods are smarter than that. Though I know that is not always the case.

There isn't a separate entry for Galaxy Trucker 2nd edition. There are entries for the 2 expansion though.

Honestly without a direct side by side comparison I don't think any changes beyond the rules card being a tile would be very obvious... at least they aren't to me.

The two differences I've noticed are that the astronaut figures are now a matte gray rather than a shiny white (accompanied by the appropriate change in the rule book), and the pointy ends of the space ship markers have been blunted a bit. Just as a disclaimer, I've got the new version, and have only played the old once a few months ago, so these are based on distant recollections.

Just got the new edition and played the old edition a long while ago. Their is a thick tile card for the 2nd and 3rd runs. It is not the same size as the deck of cards. The astronauts are now grey. The artwork on the ship parts seems to be the same. The box has a little flag that says "Preis der Wiener Spiele Akademie Spiele Hit mit Freunden 2008". It has a white inlay that might be new, I do not know if the old one had any sort of inlay. The inlay is kinda crappy. My wife says the batteries are flatter in the new edition, maybe to keep them from rolling on the board. No other changes I am aware of... oh and my box was NOT damaged.

What the hell. I just got my copy of GT (had it preordered on Funagain.) The box is damaged so I assumed it was the new edition, but the reference card is a card (same size as the rest of the cards) instead of a tile and the aliens are white. There's no RGG logo on the box either. Did anyone else seemingly get the first edition?

Hi, I'm new to BGG. I picked up this game from my LGS yesterday. I didn't even know it was so new. I've got the version from Rio Grande which is, I assume, the new version. I haven't even played it yet, but I'll try and get some pics up of the pieces this weekend for the easy Geek Gold that I need to change up my profile a bit.

I've been lurking on this site for a couple weeks. It's a pretty good site you've all got here. I really appreciate the reviews, information and pictures there are for all the games out there. So far, all the games I've picked up based off of reviews on this site have been great!


**edit: my box was not damaged in any way. All pieces and the box are in mint condition

Got a chance to compare the two editions today. The most significant change is that the new cards are about 1/4" longer than the old. The other differences are minor; the linen finish on the new boards gives a slightly darker look than the old, the new astronauts are more grey than white, the new aliens are a shade darker purple/brown, the points of the spaceships have been rounded off, the new dice are black as opposed to just plain wood, and the new sandtimer is taller and black with white sand, instead of red with green sand (I didn't check the times between them, but it didn't feel different while playing). Since the adventure cards will go in face down decks that anyone can look at during the building phase anyways, I'm not sure how significant the size difference will be, although it's usually nice when the base and expansion components match...

No, only some of the adventure cards can be looked at.
