I rate this a ten because I have never seen an expansion - such a simple little rule and such a simple little change - make a game SO much better. I rate the base game a 5, but with the expansion I'd probably rate it an 8 or 9. I will never play the base game without Vexation again. Best expansion ever.

This expansion adds much more strategies to the otherwise already excellent base game.

Definitely a needed expansion for TransAmerica. Without it I would never play the base game unless I was really pushed to do so.

I don't usually rate expansions, but this one is a stroke of genius; just a dozen coloured bits of track transform a fluffy friendly game into a much nastier one.

An extremely simple yet truly outstanding expansion - a must-have for any TransAmerica/Europa fan.

Transforms the "hang back and wait for a connection" feel in Transamerica into a "hurry up and make the connection first" feel

Changes the Trans games from subtle strategy to more obvious and somewhat deeper strategy.

I'm about even on using the expansion and playing the base games. Both are good.

One of the simplest and best game expansions I know. Only complaint is it's crazy pricey for the small amount of bits. I can't imagine playing the base game without this expansion. It adds a real layer of oomph to Transamerica. Small bits of wood or other materials could easily be used to make this yourself.

Absolutely essential for anyone who wants a little bit more nasty, strategic play in their Transamerica.

Like a piercing bon mot from Mark Twain or Bernard Shaw this pithy addition changes your whole perspective of the game. What before was a lighthearted but tense race is now a hardfought and tense race. Defeats might be greater but success will taste much sweeter. Credit to Manfred Keller for producing something so simple and subtle but with such powerful effect.

Brilliant - lifts transamerica to a level that I really enjoy, makes the whole thing a bit more 'nasty'. Now it isn't just a case of trying to piggy-back on others track, you can try to reserve sections for yourself.

Don't think I'd want to play the original game without this now.

One of the best expansions I have ever come across. It is a simple addition that completely transforms a somewhat mediocre game, making it a lot of fun. I would not recommend playing TA without it (i.e. it's a must use). It adds some strategic decisions & removes a lot of the inherent luck of the game.

It adds a lot of tactics and consideration to the base game. It's one of the 'must-have-expansions' - one of the best boardgame add-ons I have ever played.

TransEuropa é um jogo excelente, marcante pelo nível de parasitagem que permite, que chega a ser irritante. Com Vexation, essa parasitagem continua no jogo, só que agora já dá para de vez em quando se dar mais trabalho aos amantes da chulisse! Torna TransEuropa um jogo de estratégia e confere-lhe um pouco de cor, muito necessário num jogo tão escuro!

Better than the original; just adds that bit more take that to a game that can get kind of bland otherwise.
