Third Edition is a new packaging of Innovation and its expansions. It features new card
illustrations, graphic design, and game balance updates. It comes in smaller packaging than
before and at a lower price point ($20 MSRP from $25), matching the size of Asmadi’s other
small-box games (Red7, Mottainai, Meow, Adorable Pandaring, etc).
Innovation: Artifacts of History brings unique and significant objects from the past to the
table. Artifacts look and behave like normal Innovation cards, but they are significantly
more powerful. Some feature Compel effects that impact opponents who are ahead of you
in icon count. By collecting and using them efficiently, you can swing the balance of the
game in your favor. Instead of Special Achievements, there are also five Relics you can
claim -- lost cards from each of the five Innovation sets. You can take them as achievements
or use them, but be careful: If you put the Relic in your achievements pile, your opponents
may be able to steal it!
