Homemade copy. Awesome!

A nice change of pace for Hansa, which I always felt suffered a bit from having a static board. The game-ending bonus points add some extra goals to keep in mind, though I feel this board is a bit more difficult to navigate. I rate this slightly higher than the original.

UPDATE: I now rate both the original and this variant map a "10," although I think the bonus scoring options improve the game with their added tension.

But either way, either map, Hansa is, in my opinion, Schacht's best design and a new classic that will hopefully see a new English publication since Uberplay closed its doors.

plays are from MaBiWeb. Not sure if I like this expansion. The new routes and movement are good to change the game up, but the end game bonus items just don't feel right. It was a great tactical exercise in maximization, but being rewarded for loading up a city with more booths and selling more of the worst valued goods seems a bit odd to me. Players were already getting more points from spreading out, so the bonus 4 points just makes it even more critical to get into 8 or 9 cities every game. I'm not sure what the end game bonus items really add...what am I missing?

The more I play this version the more I find I like it more than the original.

I really appreciate how Michael Schacht continually refines his games after they come out and make these expansion free on his web site. Make sure you try this at www.MaBiweb.com where there is a full implementation of this available.

This variant opens up the board a lot, taking away some of the screwage potential. Very rarely will you have turns where you can't do anything positive.
