Made it easier to collect gold and do other interesting stuff than the usual game play.

I like it, but it does add several more decisions to the game which may not be good for beginners. And it means that money is more important at the end of ages 1 and 2 -- lots of people take coins on their last turn their so they can afford to buy a leader!

I don't like how good some leaders are -- I think it's Bilkis that allows you to buy any single resource for one coin, which is an extremely useful power, especially at the very beginning of the game! If you don't get a good leader (or combination of leaders), you might be at a big disadvantage. I don't think that strategy can override randomness and dumb luck in this game.

If Rome draws some good leaders in the new set of 4 that they get for drawing the first stage of their wonder, it can be a game changer.

I'm a little torn on how I feel about this one. On one hand the initial selection of leaders adds some more long term strategy to the game. But on the other, a lot of the leaders aren't that exciting and it adds some extra time and planning to a game which is best played fast. The Colosseum is a fun wonder which helps to showcase the leader cards. I like this expansion better with Cities added in also.

Adds another sometimes interesting element to the game. Might be a little to random of card draws. Some leaders seem to be out of balance in terms of their counterparts. But the regular game has a high luck factor and Leaders is no exception. Can bog down play for those unfamiliar with base game as well.

It's three more cards to play over the course of a game. I wouldn't rush out to get it unless you love the base set and play it to death.

OK expansion but I didn't really feel like it added anything essential to the experience. Possibly I just haven't extracted all the juice from the core game yet.

Introduces some more variation and ways to score but nothing that feels very different from the base game.

Leaders adds some wrinkles to the base game, but doesn't really change a lot. Generally the leaders add at most 5-10 points per player. Many times you'll get leaders that led us to want to go in a specific direction, but won't get the cards that matched.

Overall, I'm ok including Leaders but I'm also ok not including it. For me personally, I don't think the extra time and minor complexity add enough fun to be worthwhile.

I think the weight of 2.2 is a bit low. I would go more like 2.4.
