For what its worth, the best summary of changes between the 1st and 2nd Edition I have seen so far has just come out in Wargames, Soldiers and Strategy #99.

Its in an article written by Peter van Dop on pages 70 – 73.

Well worth the read!

The biggest change is the cost of the book, I think.

One other change: at least one important chart is loaded with typos, so maybe wait for the second printing….

In the tutorial, not only does Rick take us through how to play Black Powder, he talks us through the writing process of both the first and second editions. He talks about how he came up with certain rules and what to expect from the latest edition.

Take care
