I have actually considered selling this game because no one will play it :( I was looking at prices and on Amazon and Ebay people are asking for over $1000 for the original version still sealed. I think I may try to sell my used version.
Maybe the rules changes are needed before new races can be added to the game, orcs and dwarves from the rune age card game expansion.
several rules, e.g. Breaking ties, are based on the exact four races that come in the base game.
i'd expect the revised edition to be followed up with a second expansion to make the game 6 players.
i hope that this game get more expansion,
nearly this and twilight imperium is the only game that our gaming group plays :)
