Improves my favorite game of all time. The new cards provide even more interesting choices and actually balance the game further by reducing the value of the Mistress and increasing the cost of the Judge. Superb!

I rate it a 10, because it's St Petes! How could it NOT be a 10?

I like this expansion - gives the game a new lease of life and seems to make the blue cards more important as the game lasts longer

We always play with the New Society expansion, but never seem to play with Banquet.

Saint Petersburg is my #1 game and this expansion is a must buy. The new cards add more choices and excitement to an already great game. The artwork fits right into the basic game and the value adjustments on the original cards make sense and work well.

The new rule for having more than 10 Aristocrats is really nice. Now you get and additional 10VP for each distinct Aristocrat above ten. In 2 player games, it was pretty easy to get 10 Aristocrats - now you have reason to try for more.

This is an exciting expansion that improves the base game, while keeping the original flavor and mechanics the same. This is what an expansion should be.

This is fantastic. The new workers and other cards add a nice twist to the game. Aristocrats are still important, but less powerful. This expansion provides more viable options and makes a great game even stronger.

Have just played with New Society expansion because it offered the most cards (and added 2 of the Potemkin village cards from the other expansion). A 2-player game now becomes longer which feels better. You can score points for > 10 aristocrats, with the longer gameplay (and more rubles) the buildings become more important. There is card allowing you to go thru the discard stack every building phase, a building card that gives you one point for every aristocrat you have, multiple cards in the basic game get replaced and have been subtley altered - e.g., the Observatory is now more costly. The Theater upgrade that used to give you a ruble for every noble now gives you a point for every noble (much better). It was a fun departure especially if you have played the basic game a lot.

Ratings for New Society: 10

The New Society expansion fixes a couple of cards which were problematic in the original, and adds a few more different interesting cards. Also it adds enough cards for 5 players.

For 4 and 5 players, play with the whole New Society expansion (but not the Banquet cards). For 2 or 3 players, the expansion lasts a bit too long. Use the suggested variant where 1 of each basic card in the green, blue, and orange decks are removed.

Ratings for the Banquet: 5

A lot of the strategy of St. Petersburg is whether or not to take that an extra card so that you'll get that worker or aristocrat. The purple cards completely messes up that tension and pretty much make it a random game. If you do not like the strategic tension in St. Petersburg, then this will certainly change that. But otherwise it destroys the rhythm of the game.

Overtext is really cool. The best 100 GG I've ever spent.

Well. I'm actually bored with overtext. Why did I give all that GG away?

Very nice expansion. Well, I don't like the banquet jokes.... But New Society makes it worthy. I'll never play without it again.
