This extension eliminates serious bug of uncontrollable first player movement and its impact on final victory. However it seems to be developed in last minute before Essen fair this year. I love this game and will certainly buy it but I'll wait for the second edition where this expansion is integrated with the basic game ;-) The game without this element is significantly worse.

Essential, the base game should have come with it rather than the rotating 1st player.

Must have expansion. It balances the first player advantage in the first round. It is very unfortunate that this rule was not included in the rulebook of the game.

Always play this the order board. Love how this is a resource to manage now. It was slightly imbalanced when you passed the turn marker.

An interesting game. It really was a minor stroke of genius to use so many of the well-used mechanisms of euro action-phase, placement and car-draw games in complete reverse. Basically the designer makes the players do what feels like exactly the opposite of what they usually do - that is play to lose. Strip this away of course, and it still actually the same stuff...you are still deciding what to do to win and having to choose between an array of attractive options and synergies to do so. I guess some people will, as always, state that this is yet another pasted-on euro them only done slightly more cleverly. Well yes, and Dickens was just a writer, and Picasso just another painter. I've never bought that cynical stuff.

The truth is that actually this FEELS very refreshing. The theme does work and it is a game that has enough interaction and detail to offer lots of repartee between the players (especially the hiring of "the ladies" in our group).

I'll see how my thoughts on it progress with play. My only complaint was that the rules hang together very well and are totally coherent, but they were still devilishly difficult to get your head around first time. I wonder whether a brief intro to how things work would have helped for that...something like they have on a player help sheet.

The game is ripe for an proper expansion - more cards and another planning board. I look forward to that.

I consider this part of the base game, and we play it as such (without tracking it as an expansion). It's good. The board matches nicely, the quality is the same, and the only thing that bugs me about it is the absence of a sheet of rules in the little packet; that's kind of annoying.

I always use this. I'm not quite sure why it wasn't in the original box, because in all of my games of Last Will the turn order track is often hotly contested at key points in the game. I wish they had made it out of slightly thicker cardboard, mine arrived folded almost in half...

[ESP] Creo que este pequeño tablerito cambia bastante el juego en 2 aspectos:
1) Ya no es pura suerte que seas primero en escoger la posición en la programación de acciones y de esta manera, por ejemplo, recibir la carta que por azar está en la oferta durante un turno. Debes preocuparte de colocarte en el orden de turno si quieres tener una buena posición para escoger.
2) En la partida que jugamos sin este tablero muchas veces me quedé con un sombrerito y sin más opciones que escoger una carta que sabía debía luego descartar. Ahora siempre habrá opciones interesantes.

Buen aporte por solo USD5

Doesn't get used much in a 2 players game, but the more players, the more it will be used because it is annoying to be the 4-5th to choose.

I like this better with the expansion as there are ways to get 3 hats/errand boys. If you don't get 3 it is really hard for somebody to not keep first a lot.

Not really necessary in a game this quick but since you often run out of meaningful options for the second hat, might be worth a try.

The graphic design is inferior to the base game.

I prefer having it in the game over not having it, as I feel it's better for players to have a choice in their turn order, however I don't think it changed how we play the game very much. It probably should have been included in the game from the very beginning.

People say that this makes the game more strategic, but I disagree. Because the turn order changes less often, whoever happens to be first at the start of the game has an even bigger advantage. Even if someone does take the action, that player is still second. Theoretically, it should be useful for trying to jump on an Old Friend, but in reality it's difficult to predict exactly when they'll turn up. Overall I'd say this detracts from the game instead of adds to it.

This is a mini expansion/promo that I think really changes the game. This is not a bad thing though. Basically you now have a new space to place your errand boys, and this space now lets you choose the turn order in which you place your pieces. It's a good mini expansion/promo that I don't necessarily want to play with all the time, but I will to mix it up from time to time.
