Some nice, difficult expansion boards.
The open spaces are terribly hard to work, and it
seems best to accept a lot of unfilled spaces
as the price necessary to score these.

The name "fits." You'll be lucky to have a positive score at all with this expansion, but boy will you feel great when you do.

The stake is much higher here than in the base game - lots of VPs to win or lose. Boards are not easy either. So the impact of luck _might_ be greater with this expansion than in vanilla game, but I don't mind it at all even if it is true. There is _so_ much fun with this expansion...

If you like Tetris or skill games in general then this game is for you. Fun expansions and just general challenge level make this game worth trying over and over again. Always trying to break the high score.

This version looks impossible to score points. However, it actually can allow you to score a lot.

It's horrible - and a lot of fun! Believe it or not, you can get some pretty great scores out of these things, as evil as they are.

FITS needed a little variation from game to game, and these new boards provide it. They're very challenging, and the scoring is very dramatic and swing-y. I scored 98 points my first time playing the boards, although I've yet to match that score. The luck of the draw is very severe with this expansion, but it's worth it because the decisions are more interesting and the stakes are higher.

Reiner Knizia's "official" print-and-play expansion is also very good. I don't recommend the other two expansions by Ted Alspach. MOTS is less interesting than the official expansion, and LOTS is too confusing.

No reason not to print out all three expansions to mix things up.

I like it more than regular FITS because it's so much more agonizing -- it's so easy to lose big points that it's easy to get into situations where every move is very costly.

The downside is that the luck-factor is amplified.

Well one aspect of BOTS that deviates from the base game is that the game mechanics changed on each board whereas here you are basically doing the same thing on all the boards save the first one. It's still a very fun expansion for a great game and you can't beat the price!

I do have this idea of labeling each "Set" FITS Base, MOTS, LOTS and BOTS as 1, 2, 3, 4, and then each side of each set as 1, 2, 3, 4 then throwing 2d4, one decides which set and the other decides which side to play. You would need this to do that.

Ted Alspach's free print & play expansion, and when printed on heavy, glossy photo paper & placed under the plastic guard that comes with the base game, looks like the originals. Better colors than Reiner Knizia's print & play expansion, and more variety.

For me this is the harshest one and in 8 attempts, scored between -65 to +8 points.

I rated the base game a 6.5, and am rating this higher because doing the work, yet offering it for free, I greatly appreciate.

Yep...those spaces are obnoxious alright...it's fun to watch a first time players initial reaction to the boards. However, I've found I can usually score quite high on these boards, with scores of 50 or 60 some on the last board not uncommon.

This expansion has the possibility to achieve lots of points, what gives it much more luck than the boards of the other expansions. I prefer the boards with less points because they lead you to a more tight games.
