Just obtained Puzzle Strike with the Upgrade Pack bundle.

Haven't read the rules yet, have not played a single game.

Is it recommended that I play with the original set of chips or should I just put the new ones in (and replace all the character chips)?

Thanks.

Replace all character chips.

The changes are about balance and enjoyment, not complexity.

This is correct. Geiger and Lum are much more fun to play now, for example.

Don't sweat it. If you don't want to buy it, you won't even notice the imbalances until you get really good at the game. The original version is perfectly playable, just not at the tournament level.

I should read more carefully. In that case, use the new ones and only throw the old ones in if you want to do same character matchups.

I agree with the other posters. Replace the character chips with the new ones from the base set, and just use the old ones if you want to do matches of same character vs. same character. You might as well have Geiger being stronger, for example, he's not more complicated or anything. And Lum's gameplay will be more fun, so yeah go for it.

Thanks for all the replies. Initially I was worried that I wouldn't be able to appreciate the updated characters had I not experienced the original set first.
