Anyone could tell me what is the difference between the 2nd edition and the 3rd edition?

THX a lot.

The third printing (which I own) comes with slightly larger dice than the 2nd edition (which I've played). Otherwise they are identical (as far as I know).

Third edition, aka Twilight Struggle: Deluxe Edition will have a mounted mapboard, deluxe counters, and six new cards (which have not been made public yet).

As far as I know, there will be some card tweaks too.

Roger, the Deluxe Edition will actually be the 4th printing of the game. I think we changed the tournament rule from 2nd to 3rd, but whatever we did, it was not a big deal. The only major changes came in 1st to 2nd, and then there will be several extras in the Deluxe edition.

Any news on the sneak peak of the cards? Is GMT worried about people complaining about them before the next edition is released and not buy the new version? I think the new cards are the main selling point for me to get the upgrade as I never had a problem with the map. Will they replace original cards or will they be added into the deck seperately? Thanks.

The work for the preview is done. I think they were going to roll the cards out 1 per week until the game comes out. I am not sure we have hit that deadline yet.

7 of the cards are new, and optional additions. 1 card is a redo of Aldrich Ames, which would optionally replace the original card.

THX to all. And another question, if I purchase a second edition Twilight Struggle upgrade kit, what I would be purchasing? I would be able to play with it only with this stuff?

Carlos go to the Gmt website.

This update kit includes the Mounted Map, New Card Deck, and Rules & Charts included in the 2009 Deluxe Edition of Twilight Struggle, but not the countersheet.

Jason, thanks for the update. Just excited about all the new variations possible with the new cards. We plan on sorting the cards per each War and maybe picking one or two at random out of the 6 so that way neither player knows exactly what cards got placed in the deck.

I'm sure the Aldrich Ames will save a good 10 minutues of playing time as well and help the US a little as well.

Just paid for my pre-order from USA ($86.70 which approximates £58). I just hope it is worthwhile

Really looking forward to this game

Regards.

I just traded for the third printing of the 2nd edition. I owned this game before, but traded it away because I didn't have anyone to play it with, but I'm going to actually make new friends if I have to, or wait for my 12-year-old to grow up so I can play this.

The upgrade kit mentioned above is $27. The deluxe edition counters are on sale for $7.00. The mounted map by itself is $14.

I already have the 3rd printing and have pre-ordered the deluxe upgrade. What makes the new counters better? Are they the same size and just thicker?
