I love this expansion, the mechanics of the rotating cards is awesome. I know a lot of people are opposed to playing Alien Frontiers with more than 4, but this expansion adds a 5th player, and I like that.

I really like the idea of this expansion. It's nice to have more opportunities for ore, extra ships, etc.

The idea of asteroids moving through and having to navigate them is very fun. The only downside I can say about Outer Belt is this: Sometimes it can start to get a little cumbersome to move the cards every time the die rolls the asteroid symbol, but that's not really a big deal.

All in all, great expansion to a great game.

While not as game-changing as Factions, the extra dice-space gives plenty of new choices opening up new ways to win.

The asteroid cards are very useful yet distinctively different in feel to Alien Artifacts. Would not play AF without it.

fFactions are alright. Outer belt, however, is terrific. It's sort of great new device to cycle out tech cards, plus a new place to settle a colony. Awesome!

Got this with Kickstarter. It is great. For better or worst it makes the game a little less in your face with the additional spaces.

Played at DTC 2015. Speeds up the game by introducing cards that if played right can allow a player to put down up to 3 colonies in one turn.

Adds a bit to the game but it seems unnecessary and with this and factions it would probably open things up too much

Made my own german-language copy based on the PnP files plus the graphics published on Kickstarter because the shipping costs to Europe were simplay WAY too high.

All in all an excellent expansion for an excellent game. The asteroid field adds a nice, new dynamic section to the main board, making gameplay even more variable. It's a shame that this wonderful game is still not available on the German market.

I think Outer Belt is a nice little add-on to enhance the experience of the base game. It cycles through a number of cards that provide a light one-time bonus if you play the right dice to acquire them. Just a way to help further your plans, but with a neat "scrolling" mechanic that simulates asteroids traveling around in a belt. The moon's special power also makes things interesting. Yup- nothing bad to say about this!

Expands the board with bonuses you can race to get, along with more powerful cards to help you gain victory points -- though it will change docking requirements so it's not so easy to get. The box also includes pieces for a 6th player.

PLUS: additional options for added advantages
MINUS: 6th player may not match earlier editions, Game Salute makes getting the game hard

One player more (max 6). Gives a bit more variance to the game and the asteroid belt is fun, but you can play without this as well.

A better expansion than Factions. Adding Outer Belt to every play is a no brainer in my opinion.

A nice, interesting addition. I like the variable-ness as they move through the belt and how that changes the dice needed, however, even with the pre-order price and goodies, it's barely worth it, I think

A cool expansion, if not nearly as essential as Factions. I do like the asteroid belt track, as it adds a card row of all new cards you can purchase. While not all of them are maybe as useful as visiting other locations, they do offer some additional options. Shifting the cards around is a little fiddly, but otherwise this is a very good expansion.

It might be worth it if you play a lot as the asteroid belt cards provide alternate means to gain resources against resource choker players, but for casual players like myself, it added downtime to assess the extra card purchase options, it added downtime as you had more cards and more options to use each turn, and the constant updating of the asteroid belt draft most turns turned out to be a painful addition to each turn. So for me, it turned an average game into a longer more painful version of an average game.

Another location to obtain cards. The rotating aspect of the card display is cute. Not an essential expansion by any means, but a nice addition.
