This edition features a sumptuously gorgeous graphic design by Italian artist
This edition has everything: board, cards, bits ... even a box.
To ensure you have the complete early American experience, there are
187 cards, including 50 historical statesmen and 67 actual issues of the era, plus action cards, offices, taxes, tariffs and the original states
a full-color 18"x18" board
143 wooden bits
a rules booklet, with many more examples, in full color.
For those familiar with the previous editions,
this one also includes two new scenarios, additional action cards to cause
more mischief and new optional rules.
The Green Edition, also from The Game Crafter, has everything the Game
Crafter edition has with the exception of the
printed rules, player mats and box. We can probably not deliver such
items to you as efficiently as you can for yourself. Which you will
want to do anyway, just to ensure you always have the latest Living
Rules. Indeed you may not even want printed rules at all if you are
able to read them on a mobile device. If this seems strange, think
about it. All "paper" is delivered on-line now: newspapers, magazines,
computer manuals, insurance, banking and tax information, etc. This
isn't a games problem; it's a paper problem. Should games really be
any different? Let's all save a tree.
