Great promotional expansion.

I tend to prefer to play with Caves. There addition to the game tends to add opportunity for players to add a little finesse to there plays without being overly influential on outcome.

Makes playing with larger groups more balanced as you have an option to move your piece from a sector to another.

Interesting gameplay tweak, caves interconnect with each other on the board, and allow you to move adjacent settlements.

for such a little expansion this really adds a lot additional tactical decisions. it like starting with a bonus tile and utilizing the caves each turn can really help to neutralize unlucky card draw. Great expansion.

I would have preferred if there were official rules to decide when to use Caves, so that they are only used sometimes. The inofficial proposal of Donald X. to link them to the Tavern board seems acceptable, but suboptimal. I would have prefered a card that comes with Caves, which is shuffled into the Kingdom Builder cards and drawn randomly.

This is an excellent mini-expansion, as it largers the strategic level a lot as you can maneuver with your settlements near a cave. Just make sure you built next to a cave as early as possible!

Small but strategic expansion. Useful for players who find themselves stuck on a sector. Quite powerful too as any of the adjacent hexes are legal spaces rather than just the hexes adjacent to the graphic cave entrance or hexes that match the drawn terrain type.

Bit disappointed that ships and wagons cannot use these as I especially like the idea of a ship sailing through a network of subterranean rivers!

From DonaldX:

"The rule as I gave it to them was to put the cave on the first mountain hex (on each board) that wasn't within 2 of a building. Start in the upper left (as looked at with pictures right-side up) and go across, then down to the start of the next line, until you find one (or fail to, on the board that has no mountains). I don't know if they printed that rule though. The point to the rule is just to give people an answer when they don't want to decide themselves; feel free to decide yourself however you like."

"The other thing they left out was, I said to use it in games using the Tavern board. This is just so that you aren't always playing with it."

"...It had to be a main set board, since that's all I know for sure that people have, and it had to have a mountain on it, and not be one of the boards that Capitol uses (just to avoid tying them together). It might as well not be a board with a movement ability. I picked one of those boards; it could have been a different one."

Another "simple yet effective" mini-expansion that integrates well with the game. Caves can be mightily powerful and very useful on many occasions. Their only downside is that they add downtime to the game, as they make players more prone to analysis paralysis.

A cool addition to the game. Allows you to teleport around the map. Some really fun situations can come up from it.

The suggestion is that everyone agrees to the locations of the caves before the game is set up before turn order is decided, or that the last player places them.

It's great that it's a map-based special power that everyone can use, and not having to take a location on the map to get it.

Now what shall I do with the silver cubes I had made for proxies?

Also, House Rule for Caves use and placement: Use only if the number of boards with "movement" location abilities is one or none. Place them in the first mountain hex (left-to-right, top-to-bottom, as determined by art orientation) not within two spaces of a location, castle, or nomad space on each of the four boards.

I actually really like this mini-expansion. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense to go in one cave and pop up in another quadrant, but it adds something neat to consider while not mixing up the rules that much.

Made a PnP version of the game. Adds more to think about of course, but nothing worth buying separately unless you are a Kingdom builder die hard.

Not a fan of having to randomly decide the tile placement for some reason.

The caves open up for more strategies and options, but it can actually lengthen the game slightly as there are more options. Also, the caves vary a lot in usefulness depending on the scoring cards. They are okay, but not necessary. Wouldn’t mind including them though.
