Nope, the sleeves are completely clear.

What you see in the video is the small note with information about the product, it has the War of the Ring logo as well as the logos of Ares Games and Mayday Games.

Just a tad disappointed the eye-gouging red plastic for the Shadow armies hasn't been changed to the lovely brick red of the Expansion game units.
Think I still prefer the old Nazgul; if I ever sell my 1st edition I'll swop those pieces over.
But the board is a big improvement; well worth the upgrade.

Question: do the rules changes have any influence on the time of play (in comparison to the first edition)?

Is the game board smaller than the original or same size?

Its the same size, but redrawn to expand some important areas which tended to get crowded. Its also much cleaner and clearer to see where everything is. Small errors? in Isengard and Mordor, but these don't effect the game.
I'll certainly never play on the old board again.

My FLGS got my copy in today. Too bad I can't open it for a week (wedding anniversary--yes, my wife rules).

I think he is referring to the river with a white border in the middle of the Orthanc region and the black impassable lines insie regions in Mordor.
