5-23-12-FINALLY GOT IT! Played 1st game w/2 of the new cards and also used the Capitol exp. 2 of the new special tiles were also drawn. Made the game fresh and new, very exciting! It was just Miles and I so can't wait to play it w/Casey. Will record all plays w/main game, and that is game # 103.

Pre-ordered from Boardsandbits.com.

See Kingdom Builder. I do really like all of the additions. Really kicks up the decisions a full notch. Also rocket camels are awesome.

My only annoyance with the expansion is that the tiles are a brighter color than the previous tiles. You can tell the difference when putting them out. It's not a huge problem, but it is annoying.

It adds some good features to an already great game, but I feel it's too expensive for what you receive. You're mostly paying for the included foreign language components. It should have been about $10-15 cheaper.

More variety to the game with new boards and locations. Also the new scoring cards are a good chance as the scoring happens immediately. The Nomad spaces bonuses that can be used only once can sometimes get you out of a tight spot, cause havoc among other players by removing 1 settlement (and cause them to lose a location tile! hhah!) or just score some instant points.

Very good expansion.

The additional kingdom builder cards with there in-game scoring mechanics mix-up play styles in interesting ways. The nomad places add a little chaos to the game, but in doing so create additional incentives to build settlements in otherwise atypical fashion. The new landscape boards and their abilities are a nice addition. Some of the abilities tend to be more interesting than others, but all have there uses.

The option to now play with five players is also good.

this expansion really adds more depth to the game with real time scoring rather than just end of game. The nomads are kind of random as it's a bit hard to predict what you are going to use them for but still adds a race to get them because you fear your opponent may get them. The new boards and special ability locations really make this expansion shine.

This expansion has few new rules but adds many more options to think about. My brain actually hurt a bit after using the many options in this expansion set. It changes the game into a heavier thinking game and one really needs to decide before hand if you want to use this expansion for a heavier, longer game of play just the original which is shorter and has less heavy pondering but still has interesting decisions. I don't think this expansion makes the game better just different on the same level. Great game with or without.

Nomads is excellent, and integrates easily with the base game. The new scoring options are quite in tune with the originals, and the maps are a good addition too. The new Nomad tiles are a good change-up: rarely worth getting early on, they are still powerful and you want to stop them falling into the wrong hands. We have found several games were deeper than with the base set alone.

I am not sure about 5-player Kingdom Builder: never a fan of added downtime, and the board gets remarkably crowded. I doubt it will be a regular 5-p item.

I like that they added the ability to play with 5. I also like the new boards, new bonus tiles, and in-game scoring cards.

Like it quite a bit. Great to just shuffle in with the basic set and see what comes up. Have yet to try all of the locations and scoring conditions.

For KB lovers. Those not liking KB won't get fond of the game, because of this expansion.

My thoughts on the components:
- 3 new goal cards -> very good; after you get used to the constant scoring, you really start to appreciate the new layer of decisions provided by them...
- 4 new tile abilities -> fine, in vein of abilities from the base game. Quarry(!) and Caravan seem to have the most profound effects...
- 15 one-shot nomad tiles -> _really_ well-balanced; it's an interesting decision when to pick them up - they are not so great to get them immediatley (when you have so many multi-use abilities on the board) and on the other hand they are too strong later in the game just to leave them alone... I like it.

All in all, more of a needed variety and generally great impression. The game is a pure joy now!

Waiting for more expansions!!!

Sadly, serious gaps in rules - at least filled here, on bgg, by the designer...

1 play so far. Adds more variety and combinations to an already great game.
- Nomad spaces aren't terribly interesting.
- Shepherds: very cool scoring criteria. Really changes how we play, and the relative value of the location tiles.
- Camels: Crazy powerful, especially for sector-based scoring criteria.

Like the Dominion expansions before them, the bits in Nomads start to demonstrate the real potential of the system.

It adds more of the same and a couple new concepts. Kingdom Builder was never meant to be a complex game and Nomads doesn't make it such. We bought Nomads right as we stopped tabling Kingdom Builder almost daily so it hasn't seen much action, but it seems good.

Fits the original game like a glove, scoring during game play is a perfect addition and the Nomad-cards add some speedy tension. I enjoy the game even more with this expansion.
The only minus (for both, KB and the extension), I think they ask for a little bit too much money. Will have to wait for a good deal. Nevertheless, fantastic game and here is a fantastic expansion.
