Twilight Struggle is back for another year. Deluxe edition will be used as the default; the FAQ, Q&A, and a list of the changes from 1st to 2nd edition can all be found at, in the Twilight Struggle folder, and on the Boardgame Geek. A list of card changes from 1st to 2nd edition is in the same locations (and included in the FAQ). Players should check the same two locations for changes to the deluxe edition. Incomplete games will use final scoring rules.

If necessary to accommodate even numbers in the next round, a player will get a bye. Past champion gets the first bye. After that, byes will be determined randomly.

Balancing rules will be in effect. We will use the Chinese Civil War option from the deluxe set as the default. Players that do not have the Chinese Civil War variant and do not know it may play 2nd edition rules instead. In either case, players may bid PCs for sides. Both players roll a die. The high roller gets the first bid or side preference (no minimum). From there, simple auction bidding with the high bid taking the preferred side. Losing bidder then receives the amount of the bid in additional influence, placed after all other setup is complete, and only in countries where the player already has influence.
A list of the card changes from 1st to 2nd edition can be seen at:
