I know there's an extra campaign in the box and updated counter and map art.

But I haven't seen anyone talk about what really matters: the updated scenarios of Second Bull Run. Have they made them balanced/better (the confederates had it way too easy in the old version, even with the later amendments from The Skirmisher)?

AND

Is it possible to play the new scenarios with the old components (I assume so. They couldn't have changed the map that much).

Yes, during the playtesting, Chris, Ed, and Mike updated most of the existing 2nd Manassas scenarios to improve the VP awards and the Victory conditions to balance them out, after 20 years of tournament play.

You shouldn't have any issues using the older counters on the new maps. Make sure you get the Skirmisher #1 counter updates, though. The only new terrain addition is the HILL terrain type.

I was planning to use the updated scenarios with the old game, both map and counters.

Now if only I could find someone who'd bother to send me a copy of the scenarios...
