And is the name the only thing that changed?

I remember something about some additional rules for the new edition...?

I changed the name on BGG earlier today, but the name of the product itself changed a while ago. The designer told me that legal issues forced the name change, and he chose "LECTIO" because (1) that's the Latin word from which "Lexio" was first derived and (2) "Lectio" means "choosing" or "selection", which is appropriate for the game.

He didn't mention rule changes – only that the plastic chips from previous editions would not be in this new release.

PLEASE CONSIDER A NAME CHANGE TO Lectio.
There, isn't that better? The game name in all caps is jarring and completely unnecessary.

I prefer mixed case myself, but the designer used all caps each time he wrote the game so that's how I wrote it as well. I ordered a copy and will see how it appears in the rules.

That's because Hangeul doesn't have cases and proper nouns are frequently transliterated entirely in upper case letters. People's names are often written this way in english translations used in Korean documents and newspapers.

That still doesn't make it any less jarring to native English speakers.

Was the legal dispute concerning the name with the original publisher, Dagoy?
n/m, just read the post by T. Jung.

I Recently discovered this game and have been trying to search for it.

Before this name change, did anyone think about the fact that typing "lectio" into a generic search bar will bring up numerous entries for "collection," "reflection," "deflection," "election," etc? Yes, I know that many search functions have characters that you can add to prevent this, but not all do.

For an example, type "lectio" into the search bar on CoolStuffInc. Not helpful.

Given the designer is Korean and English is not his native language, I doubt that was something he considered.
