More boards for Castles of Burgundy with some alternate rules. All things considered not a bad addition to the game.

These board are awesome and the new rule kicks butt. Actually made me increase my rating of the base game to a 9 with this being implemented. I can't see ever going back to the basic boards/rule.

These are amazing value if you can track down an old copy of Speilbox. The quality of the boards matches the originals and the new placement rule really adds a new dimension.

A good game gets better. One of the very minor weakness of the original castles is that you could basically do anything you want, so every players end up with only a few slots unfilled by the end of the game. This addition adds challenge!

I think the new boards give the game a good new twist. The initial placement of castles seems super important. Perhaps I was pleased with these maps, as it was my first victory after four defeats.

The new placement rule (only possible with these new boards) introduces new difficulties, requiring you to develop your estates in a more constrained sequence of tile placements.

More variety in player boards is great, but they are definitely not balanced, so it's best to use the same player board or determine boards which are close to balanced to ensure fair, competitive games.

Several plays at Boiteajeux.net, new boards with old rules. Haven't yet played with the new rules yet.

Same game, a whole new set of boards. Not sure how balanced they are, but certainly a nice change of pace.

New boards are all pretty symmetric. We have not played with the new rules that came with it (build radiating from castles only), but I think this might really be necessary.

These add two extra challenges, but one thing to ease the pressure; however, in order to use that pressure release, you must fight more fiercely for the castles as they come out….

I like the new rules for these boards, but it is problematic to play a mix of these and the normal boards with new players: Consistency is a good thing. So, we tend to find ourselves all playing these or all playing the others.

4 double-sided player boards.

These boards are part of the Spielbox magazine issue Rules:
In the original game, you have to lay all tiles in the princedom next to at least one already laid-out tile. Now, not only do you have to place them as just described, but in addition, the tiles always need to be connected - directly or indirectly (i.e. by the same color) with at least one castle.
In other words: If you add a new tile, it must lie either directly next to a castle - or at least be connected with a castle by the same color (as the tile); a different color is not allowed.
This rule doesn't apply to new castles; they may be added as before.
At any time, for the cost of 2 dice actions and 5 victory points, a player may retrieve a previously set-aside (that was unclaimed/purchased from the main board in a previous round) Castle tile (Green or Black-backed) and place it in their reserve.

If you LOVE Castles of Burgundy and have played it a lot, sure, these 4 player boards with their 8 different layouts might be a good addition. However, for the rest of us who haven't played CoB to death, there really isn't any need to own them. I bought them but sold them again as the replayability is good enough in the base game with the 6 double-sided boards. The new rule doesn't do that much to me, though I think it's a nice rule for experienced players who want a tougher game.
