One of the best expansions I can think of. It adds so much, without really complicating the game. New wonders, new civilizations, more tiles, more techs, the great persons are a lot more interesting, and it adds investments. If you have the base game, don't hesitate, and get this expansion!

This expansion brings almost everything that we were hoping to see to the base game. We have more stuff - civs, wonders, techs, etc - but we also have excellent new options. Infrastructural investment, thematically rich great people, relics, and more. Add a 5th player to the mix, and it is a home run. On a minor downside: Many of the new additions heavily favor cultural victory paths, sometimes so much so that the culture track takes undue spotlight in some games. This has been rebalanced with the latest W&W expansion, and barring that there are many house rules to compensate if you dislike the flavor of the culture-rich game. These are not necessary to enjoy the game, and many players really enjoy the environment that F&F brings to the table. In either event, this expansion adds some excellent content to the game that you are free to integrate to taste.

The new civilizations are ridiculous! This is exactly what an expansion should be--more of all the stuff that was awesome about the original plus some new rules and mechanics to keep it fresh. The investment mechanic makes a culture victory attainable and competitive as opposed to the long shot it used to be.

Great expansion! Economic victories get so much more interesting because of the Investments. The Great Person cards make the cultural victories more fun (although also more random, but that's what makes the cultural victory unique). Definitely get it if you like the base game!

First time I played Civ we used these rules and it was too much to all take in (as the only new player in a 4 player game) but I remember looking forward to it.

Now I need to play it more to test investments (which seem culture focused?) But it does change the game a lot - for better or worse I've yet to decide, but we'd out played the core game. So a welcome change!

Edit: Great people cards more fun (if some over-powered) so more incentive to get them. More cards helping culture.

I was a bit dissapointed in the Culture Victory track in the base game. It wasn't bad or broken, just lacking something for me. The technologies, culture cards, and new loot rules pushed this game over the top for me (in a good way). It is GREAT! The other additions to the gaame are nice and I am undecided in how often I will use them, but the new cards made this game for me. Highly recommend!

Strictly speaking not an essential expansion, but now that I own it, I will never play without. And that's with all parts of it. The expansion in every aspect is easy to integrate, even when the game is introduced to new players.

4 new civilizations that provide their own unique starting positions, some extra wonders for variability, a few extra tech cards, a few fixes, and two new additions that mainly redress some balance issues with the victory paths.

For me an example of how an expansion should be done: Cool new stuff, easily integrated, and nothing overdone or gamechanging. Excellent.

The great people cards is a really nice touch. Don't like the new "wonder" tiles, it adds too much luck to the game.

The investment cards are really good, although I still think the economic victory can be obtained easily.

This expansion takes the base game from an 8 to a 9. It adds a few new elements that just "make" the game. It adds a few more steps but they greatly enhance the game. With that said the expansion is not a "must have" as the base game is very good on its own. But once having played with the expansion you will not want to play without it.

Adds quite a bit to the base game shifting the strategies, and making culture a far more viable option - in fact, a little too viable. It's now almost essential to get a little culture, and often culture is the preferred win condition.

A very good expansion indeed. It changes the game a lot, not in a bad way though. It balances the overpowered coin victory with slowed culture victory. With added elements such as Investment, 5th player components, new techs, new culture cards, new wonders and four new civilizations! What's not to like?

This is usually what I want out of expansions- a couple of new simple rules and more content for the base game. Culture and economy get help, more incentive to explore aggressively, and expanding available civs to twice the maximum players all make me think I'll be enjoying this game for years yet.

Only played expansion once, but can't find anything wrong yet. The new civilizations are very strong and we had a problem with one doing a culture victory very easily, but he also had some techs and other things going right for him. Overall the improvements far outweigh any concerns. Improvements include adding a 5th & 6th player (including the color PURPLE!!!). Changing the Great Person and some new huts/villages. I'm sure there was more, but that's what I remember off the top of my head.

This makes the game so much better. Not only does it add a 5th player but it makes cultural victories much more viable and it also gives rules to hinder someone going for an economic victory.

The additions of a Metropolis and Great People cards really make the game better. The new huts and variety to exploring and the ruins on the maps give people a reason to travel and not just turtle up.

I love Civ but now I really love it with this expansion.

Can always use more races. Great idea of incorporating actual abilities for Great People, something the computer version has not done, at least as far as Civ IV is concerned.
