Sorry if this has already been posted. I know that the games came with different promos, but did the 2nd edition change anything? Are the components the same?

Thanks!

Everything is that same component wise except for the card backs. 2nd ed. and moving forward all have a slightly purple back.

Except for the 2nd printing boxes that had them attached in a small plastic bag - don't know what proportion had them, but mine was one.

The Alien Ship die is clear in 1st edition and frosted in later editions.

... and the Alien Artifact now has >=8 printed on the board rather than >7 with the first edition (and there was much rejoicing).

Second edition smells a bit less fruity than the first; more of a melange. The after taste reminds me, not unfavorably, of first edition Merchant of Venus.

The box fart seems weightier somehow — stolid. Less of a tinny whine.

I recommend a light Chardonnay and a slab of Tomme Vaudoise.

Happy gaming!
