If FFG's version is printed in your language, then that's the one to get.

My research seemed to find that the FFG version adds more aliens and options to previous editions but gets rid of the lucre versions with some aliens.

That's what my on-line research seems to show but I've not seen the older versions and so might be mistaken although I don't think I am.

There are a few comparisons. In brief, FFG's version is very close to the original EON version, so much that us old gamers love it and have switched over. The FFG version is missing Lucre and Moons and Reverse Hexes, but has so much more that it's (almost) not noticable.

The biggest thing, FFG's version is still in print, the others aren't. Just get it and you'll be happy

Hi,
i think the FFG version is not available in german.
Should i hope or get an older version?
The other versions are rated way lower then the FGG one...
