This is a very fun expansion to already a great game. Now, this expansion just speeds up the game dramatically, because you can use the extra letters and the postman for extra actions.

You see, you get an extra action for each 2 letters. But if you have the postman, you can use only 1 letter for extra action. Before the game, each city gets a letter and who's there first, gets it, while noone else gets one when they hit that city.

So you fight for the letters first and then for the postman. The game picks up speed dramatically, as the extra actions add up.

I think this expansion just give the game a nice tweak. Sort of like a turbo on a car. When it kicks in, you better pay attention what is going on. Great expansion and one to have!!

Excellent expansion. Adds a new layer of complexity, without changing the character too much.

Adds a nice twist to the original game that lengthens the play (good thing, IMHO). A little much for the Power & Glory expansion though.

A very small expansion, but very good. You tend to build smaller routes to get hold of the letters. More fun and it don't make the game longer, but still you don't want to go first...

Good game, nice graphics, little too hard for non gamers... Why did I leave that at my parents place? I wonder (01.05.09)

My copy obtained through Geek Trade had homemade bits for this variant. Finally played a 2 player on 7/7/09 and found the changes to the basic game very good.

Very nice expansion that fits the rest of the game almost perfectly and widens the range of possible decisions in this rather random game. Worth having.

I rate this 1 point less than the original game. It adds some strategy, but on my two player games it introduced a "rythm" problem where one of the two players was always able to secure the princess messenger and had a considerable advantage. Less of a problem with more players, though.

We only play with this expansion, it makes the base game much better by adding some competition.

Despite getting this expansion in 2006 with the Spielbox magazin... I didn't get round to playing it until August 08.
An excellent little addition which pushes this from a 7 to an 8 game. Will always play with this expansion now.

Thurn und Taxis - Der Kurier der Fürstin -- Played once; three-player.

Interesting expansion, in that it is very easy to incorporate, but does have significant impact on gameplay. Each turn takes a bit longer as each player decides whether to use his missives. While that may sound like a down-side, the upside would be that the missives only serve to help those who use them -- they do not hurt the other players.

Using letters is a very clever idea that works great. It gives you more to think about without adding unnecessary layers to the game. I think it actually makes this version slightly better than the original.

If you manage to get to the letters before your opponent then you get opportunities to have extra services from the postal officers. While I enjoy the extra strategy element, I think the expansion interupts the flow of the game.

A nice light addition to Thurn und Taxis.
The letter allow you to take extra
special actions in a turn.

A good expansion to add to Thurn & Taxis. Doesn't mess with the original formula, and allows for some extra actions. Neat-o.

This expansion is straight out of Seyfarth's "Airships." The letters are the bonus turn tiles, and the rider-figure is the blimp-token. That's pretty much it. cool
