I have the 1985 WEG version of Junta (that I rescued from a second-hand store years ago), and while it's a favorite of mine, I'll easily admit that it's not the clearest game for explanations or text on cards.

I see that Alderac is printing a new edition - is it just a cleanup, or are there mechanical differences?

  • Not to be confused with the 2010 Junta: Viva el Presidente by Z-Man Games. – Thunderforge May 4 '15 at 19:31
  • The 1985 version you're talking about is the 2nd edition of Junta. The 3rd edition is from 2005, here's a list of changes: boardgamegeek.com/thread/198305/… – freekvd Aug 31 '15 at 13:02
  • Short version: 1) First fire has been eliminated, shooting is simultaneous for everyone. 2) minor changes to retreats. 3) unit transfer during Coup Phase. 4) optional rules for longer/shorter games. – freekvd Aug 31 '15 at 13:04
