I have the 1985 WEG version of [Junta][1] (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][2] - is it just a cleanup, or are there mechanical differences?
