Coolstuff Inc. has a "2nd edition" listed for sale. Is there a new version of the game out?

CSI has the original version with the black box listed as out of stock, and the new one has a Red cover (which looks like the Polish artwork going by BGG's entries).

He's looking real sharp in his 1940's fedora. He's got nerves of steel, an iron will, and several other metal-themed attributes. His fur is water tight and he's always up for a fight.

He's a semi-aquatic egg-laying mammal of action. He's a furry little flat-foot who'll never flinch from a fray. He's got more than just mad skills, he's got a beaver tail and a bill.

No, these are two different things.

Old:




New:

My edition (I got a year ago) is the older box, and it had the new plot cards with art. I am sure the new one has them too, but this is not a new change.

My edition (first one) doesn't have the new plot cards, but I bought them from the BGG Store. Maybe this one is just a new printing, nothing exactly new.

I believe things are different, nothing 'new' though.

I believe the "Second Edition" as listed on CSI has updated iconography and more text on the various cards. So, it's not just the Plot Cards that are changed.

I've also heard some of the components are no longer cards, but ... cardboard? I dunno...I haven't gotten my hands on this new edition, just heard things. I am definitely going to order it, regardless.

What the hell were they thinking with that new cover? They went from intriguing cover art to a bad piece of Starbuck wannabe.

Ugh.

I find this thread ironic as I've been looking to get The Resistance for a long time and all I saw available on CSI is the new Second Edition. Well I pulled the trigger and recieved my copy today. So far the voting cards and plot cards are of a nice linen. The Round Tableau is of a nice card stock (it's a nice quality and weight in my opinion) The rest of the game components are cardboard.

I think some of the art has been changed as my Establish Confidence card art does not look like what's above, however Keeping a Close Eye on you does. I can try looking at the gallery to see if any other art has changed but I think the game is pretty much the same.

Thanks for informing us. Is your box the cool charcoal one or the hideous red one with a cheerleader on the cover?

They really should have just used Emily's spy-card.

My box is the new red "Cheerleader" edition.

The Spy Iconography and Resistance Iconography I've noticed is different and Jay just sent me a geekmail with a bunch of other differences that I can confirm

Because its awesome.

I guess I'm in the minority but I think the new box will work better. The previous was a little bit generic, and perhaps 'classier'.

But this will catch your eye a lot better than the previous box. And getting noticed is half the battle.

But making the customer think you are resisting sparkly vampires is half of losing that battle.

Yes, the box is bigger.

There are now double-sided tokens with guns on them to show who's going on the mission, instead of cards.

There are now vote tokens instead of cards.

Mission cards now have 'success' or 'fail' written on them.

Double-sided cardboard markers to show who won each mission instead of the wooden counters.

There are multiple boards for different number of players that show the different number of people for each mission, and they are bigger and have a spot to mark which proposal of the 5 you are on.
