•Yspahan: The Souks - 10
Después de jugar con als cartas nuevas dudo que use las antiguas nuevamente.
Me encantó la regla de robar 2 cartas y escoger una. Equilibra mucho la mala suerte y puede ser aplicada sin expansión.

AUN NO PRUEBO
•Caylus Magna Carta: The Favors
•Amyitis: The Palace
•Sylla: caveant consules
•Mykerinos: The Nile

Ezt egybe pontozni grrr.
Amyitis kieg: Ami negatív: a már meglevő teljes paklit lecseréli, ami rendben van, ami nincs, hogy 2x akkora kártyákat tesz be helyette. Ugyanakkor a kieg maga jó. Mert: jó, hogy el lehet venni a kezdést (hátránya: az eddigi lineáris tervezést fejbe vágja, de ettől még tervezhető persze), jó, hogy a körmenetet is el lehet venni. Az ingyen lap kicsit erős, talán 1 plusz pénzért jobb lenne,igaz most is pénz, mert ahhoz h elérd mozogni kell, ami minimum 1 pénz. Jó, h mindig mozogni kell ezen a táblán ahhoz, hogy ezekhez hozzájuss, nem elég egyszer fellépni rá. Itt még egy negatív: nincs jelölő arra, hogy mozogtál itt, végül mi egy kocka tábla rakásával jeleztük ezt.
Caylus Magna karta kieg: leszámítva a kiadó balfékségét -más színű sárga a plusz bábu az alapjátékhoz, és az 5. ember bábi másképp néznek ki- a kieg maga nagyon jó. Tovább bővíti, mélyíti az alapjátékot, kezdi Caylus szerűsíteni, ugyanakkor még mindig könnyedebb és még még mindig más a játék. Nagyon eltalálták, kicsit más irányú lesz a játék, a tervezés, de ettől nem csak másabb, de mélyebb, és talán még jobb is lett.

The rating here isn't because all the expansions in the Ystari Treasure Box are excellent - a few like the Yspahan cards and Caylus Magna Carta favor track are, and a few others not so much. Rather, the rating is for the long-overdue concept of packaging a bunch of small expansions together. I'm an expansion junkie (at least for the games I really like - and there are a number of Ystari games I really like), and having all these expansions issued in one box rather than trying to track them down piecemeal is a great idea and a terrific trend (since Alea has now done it, as well!). Once quibble ... the purple fifth-player tokens for Caylus Magna Carta don't match the shape of the original player tokens (they're round tokens rather than the cylindrical originals), and one of the extra scoring marker sets for the favor track is yellow and so does not match the orange player color (in my set, at least). Still, I like this concept and I'm not going to downgrade my rating much as a result of the mismatched tokens.

I love that they put this together. Great idea. I have all the games that are in this one and have begun to enjoy the additions. Metropolys was OK nothing special but still nice to have. CMC was incredible! LOVE the new cards for Yspahan as well. Only disappointing thing is the Ys characters are not there guess they still want to sell the Ys expansion on it's own but I don't want a 5th player color so I'm not willing to buy that.

Yspahan - The Souks

Yspahan: This added a good variety of cards which the original lacked. Also the new rules with drawing two cards and discarding one really adds to the strategy of using the cards.

Quelle extension !

Yspahan : Bien ! Renouvelle les parties en n'ajoutant que très peu.

Metropolys : l'ajout le moins percutant selon moi

Amyitis : On rentre dans le jeu très complexe, mais ça renouvelle bien les parties. Ne peut pas être ajouté en 1ère approche.

Caylus Magna Carta : Cet ajout me permet enfin de trouver du réel plaisir à ce jeu. Pas autant que Caylus bien sur, mais quand même !

Sylla : Je ne vois pas comment jouer sans à l'avenir.

Amyitis: The Palace  8  — The palace track gives players yet another front on which to compete, but provides some very interesting new decisions to the game. I rather like it!

Caylus Magna Carta: The Favors  7  — This adds some nice elements to the game, but lengthens the game to the length of Caylus.

Metropolys goal cards  7  — I enjoyed them just fine, as I scored 18 points off mine, and my opponents got zero. So, they might be a little skewing. Still, they add no complexity to the game; only to your choices, which is a win in my book.

Mykerinos: The Nile  7  — Adds some interesting carvings to the areas and game, but I'm not convinced that Greenwish is much more than a distraction.

Sylla: caveant consules TBD

Yspahan: The Souks  8  — The slight rules tweaks and replacement set of cards balance the game a little more, and reign the Caravansary in a bit, to make it a viable strategy, without needing to be fought by the other players.

Yspahan: The Souks. These cards replace the original ones. They are full size instead of small, add some different capabilities, and includes a few minor rule adjustments. Very nice.

Owned only Amyitis and Sylla expansions.

* Sylla expansion ('Caveant consules')
At first it seems it's not a big deal - just a few new cards, no new rules. BUT these few cards open new interesting options (Philosopher, Gladiator) and others can ensure totally different gameplay each time you play. Replayability is increased amazingly comparing to the fact it's just a few new cards...
I do not see ANY reason to play ever without this expansion.

* Amyitis expansion ('The Palace')
I think it's ok --> more possibilities and non-obvious choices. It's harder to plan comparing to the base game (starting player position and leader of procession position switch in a way difficult to predict). But not only that - it's harder to weigh the mid- and long-term profits from particular moves/strategies now.

* Metropolys expansion
The game is not better with this expansion. At most it's at the same level as without it, but I'm inclined to say it's visibly *worse*. Somehow it's less exciting with these new goals and without the fight for tallest buildings in districts... I'd say this expansion is not improvement on the basic game, but a diversion when you need some variant after playing standard rules for a long period of time...
[Sold together with the base game]

I've used the Caylus, Amyitis and Mykerinos expansions - all of which have proven to be good additions to their respective games. Quite an impressive set if you have enough Ystari games to make it worthwhile. (My copy is now missing the Yspahan expansion, which I traded for something else...)

Yspahan Expansion: Excellent addition, weakens the previous bread-and-butter strategy and strengthens the bazaar strategy. Plus: more options in all game situations.

Amyitis Expansion: Nice addition, but not necessary to enjoy the game.

Sylla Expansion: does not change the game much. Not an improvement.

(Mykerinos - the Nile expansion has a separate entry in my collection)
