and you had both the 3rd (with stickers to correct the 2 errors) and 4th edition maps, which map would you prefer to play the game with (assuming you could use any components you want, from any edition)? and, which map is bigger, and would there be "space issues" with either or both? thanks...

There are no "space issues" worth noting, not like say, in a Columbia Block game, as stacks slide easily. Interestingly, I can find no good pictures of the 4th Ed board. So I cannot really say. However, while I don't exactly like the "lines", that pattern the Phalanx board, everything else about the production of that game is so fantastic, I don't have any qualms about saying which one I would pick.

I own the new edition, and judging from the photos here, I'd say the Mayfair edition map looks like the GDW map, and it uses the Phalanx graphics for the pieces.

2nd Edition was produced by GDW (Game Designers Workshop).

Never be afraid to ask what you may consider a stupid question. I spent years wondering what FUBAR meant !!!

Games are not movies or stories; they're vehicles for creative decision making.
