Makes a great 4 player game into a still interesting but not as filler up to 6 player game. Playing 4 with the new roles also helps to make a great game even better. I think that if you have a chance to play this you owe it yourself to give it a try.

My rating is on what the expansion does for the game, not a rating of the game+ expansion.

I find no negatives to this expansion.

Makes a seemless transition into 5-6 players and still maintans the feel of the game and more players = more fun!

The expansion brings a pretty interesting way to play the game. Also expands the number of players. I think the Palace brings a good protection system for someone and a new square to contest over during the end game. Taking some of the luck out as you know what the winning player most likely is going to aim for towards the end allowing you to spread your influence to catch up. The expansion does not change the main game too much outside of this fact, so it can be said that unless you're bringing more friends in on the game, there is little need to get it. As Revolution the base game is good enough by itself to provide hours of endless fun.

The added squares on the player board is also nice. Just having more spaces to bid on makes it less cramped and less chance of bid pushing than the original game. Also, new early game contested squares and late games squares make the conflicts between players more predictable.

I would have gave this a 10/10 like the base game but the expansion really isn't needed to have fun with the main game. Unlike Kingsburg where the enhancements take a great game over the top. However, this addition brings nothing but usable components into the base game. So nothing is wasted. In some expansion sets, I end up only using 3/4 of the components because of the rule changes or complexion it might bring to the base game that might not be so popular. This is not the case with The Palace.

9/10 would suggest ownership of any Revolution player because it just expands on what is a great game without complicating things. Every dollar spent will have a good return on your investment.

This improves the base game by adding a 5th and 6th player as well as opening up the bidding board a bit. A very nice expansion, even if you are only playing with 3-4.

This expansion improves Revolution; the 4 new characters offer more choices, and help reduce "bumping", where players collide on the same characters and don't get anything for their efforts.

Ok needed for more players - with 4 not enough conflict. The places that give coins are not worth it as you can usually get a force or blackmail. However the viceroy is a nice idea I could use with lesser numbers

Expansion adds game space for two more players and makes for a more competitive game if anything more enjoyable than the core 4 player game.

Guardhouse adds a tactical element to counter other players' opportunities for replacing/moving your cubes.

Love how this expansion opens up some more offensive AND defensive options for your strategy. Overall, the new characters/strategies are a blast, I love the ability to play up to 6 players, HOWEVER six players can get pretty chaotic, with a lot of your plans falling apart seemingly randomly. Still like a lot, though.

Played with three players and I would not recommend this with three because the guard always forces opponents hand when choosing an opponent to move or remove so you just might be beating on the person in last thus pushes the payer in the lead further. I do like the new people to influence as it give good opportunity to change money into better resources. The viceroy and mayor give good opportunities to push the game to end which I like. overall I see the potential with this expansion and would like to play it with more players as I think the experience would be great as i like the ideas that aare presented here just not with 3.

Makes a good game even better, which is the best you can expect from any expansion. More players don't seem to add as much chaos as might be expected. The Guardhouse is a brilliant addition and the new "actions" are balanced and useful. Well done.

Six players actually worked! That really is a revolution. I imagine that it's best with 5 players but it was a well-done expansion. Only thing holding it back is the cost versus what you get. Thanks so much for the gift Kirk and family!
