Yes. The game system is unchanged. The primary changes ( that necessitate a 2nd ed. moniker ) are change in box size (smaller), revised rulebook ( revised editing ), minor graphic design changes to game board and layout of Achievement cards. Character mats include an (optional) re-roll track, that may or may not be used by players. ( Important: The re-roll track is not a new mechanic, and not required to play the game, but included for optional book-keeping.) Beyond that, the 2nd edition is the same game found in the 1st edition box.
