Makes this game a 9 - gives you just that little bit more of a choice to give you a bit more control and add a lot more variety.

So many leaders too...makes it different each time!

I thought this added a lot to the base game. It allows you to focus your strategy or provide you with some direction if you wish it. Ultimately, you don't have to use them if you prefer since you can discard for gold or use to build a wonder.

This expansion adds an entirely new layer to 7 Wonders, and it fits in really well with the base game. The leader-draft at game start also helps to give a player some direction before Age 1 begins, which is a nice side effect if you're a player that struggles with choosing a strategy.

The group trends to prefer Cities to Leaders by some margin but personally, I find this one average. Sometimes you get stuck with some really bad leader choices and provide you with few strategic outlets.

Seems like a great idea, but it ultimately slows down the smooth, fast play of the base game. Before every round, now it's passing the rules around for everyone to figure out what this or that symbol means. This just throws mud in the gears for me.

Makes the base game a bit richer. Individualizes play. But 7 Wonders only works with 3 players unless you don't mind not being able to effect some of the players.

Very easy to introduce expansion that doesn't really add any complexity apart from different symbols but adds another way to refine your strategy, this will be an auto include for me from now on.

Rating based on how much I enjoy the base game with this expansion included.

I already love 7 Wonders, and Leaders adds just another layer to that love. It was the first expansion I bought for 7 Wonders and it's probably the one I like best. Although I haven't played much with Cities yet.

I like what this expansion does on paper, but less so in practice. What I really like about the base game is that our regular group can get a game knocked out in under 45 minutes (usually 30 or less). It's a quick filler, or game night finisher and I really like it for that.

Leaders does 2 things that throw a wrench into that setup. Maybe one and a half. One, it adds a lot of iconography that I feel is less intuitive than the base game. It's annoying, but not a dealbreaker. What I really don't like is that there is only one reference aid for it (the rules). The base game came with a few (maybe 2) extra sheets to hand out to the group to reference throughout the game if you forgot what a card did (especially guilds). Since there's just the one reference it takes quite a bit for everyone to look up what their new leader cards do every age, which just adds to the overall game time. I know someone on BGG has uploaded player aids to print off, but I would have been nice had they included one with the game itself.

Well, I guess it's really just that one issue. But it does increase the playtime enough that it falls out of that

Leaders are awesome. They have a huge impact on the game and often dictate the strategy that a player employs. It *does* add a separate phase to the game every round which I have mixed feelings about, but the mechanic is the same simple "draft and play" that the rest of 7-Wonders benefits from. I never rate expansions higher than I rate the base-game, but when the rating is equal, we include the expansion by default when busting it out.

The leaders add quite a bit of variety to the game without getting in the way. You still have the added complication of lots of new and different symbols to figure out so it's not for beginners and adds to the already considerable learning curve.

This feels natural and should be mandatory for anyone who plays 7 Wonders regularly.

You know an expansion is good when you wouldn't think of playing without it once you've tried it. Leaders is such an expansion- basically adds a layer of strategy and variability with minimal added complexity. A very elegant expansion that makes a game I don't really like a bit more palatable (by virtue of making it more interesting).

Expands the base game nicely!

Every player now has a stock of 4 leaders after the new first Leader Phase of the game. Each of them has effects roughly similar to those of buildings (although there are lots of new effects). You can recruit (=build) one leader at the start of every age (in a new phase called Recruitment Phase) and nobody can take that from you. That means other than in the base game, you have some cards (other than the wonder stages) of which you can be certain that you can build/recruit them later (at least as long as you ensure that you have the necessary coins to recruit your leaders at the start of every age).
This adds some possibility for long term strategic planning, which I like!

*Maybe* the leaders increase the luck factor a little because it is mostly luck based and quite important if you manage to get leaders with synergy effects. However, disregarding some unlikely 3 leader power combos, the level of luck involved here seems roughly similar to the luck already present in the base game. Some luck with 2 leaders that match well can easily be offset by bad luck of the draw later, so it doesn't seem a big deal and is outweighed by the nice new possibility for long term planning in my opinion.

EXPANSION

Thoughts? -
A must have and must play expansion with every game. Random leaders can overpower a strong board if they synergise, but it's a necessary addition. Plays well with 2-7 players. The game scales and gives a good game with any number.

Still Play Regularly? - Necessary expansion for every game.

It was fine I suppose. I think it'd add diversity to the base game if you have overplayed base 7W, but it doesn't do anything all that striking/new. Its basically an 8th card you get every age, which doesn't really significantly change the feel or anything of the game. I also like how short 7W is, and making it longer makes it not as attractive.

I think the base game is fine without this, and I think this was a mediocre expansion or thereabouts.

Plays: 1 or 2

The addition of the leaders to the original game gives each player a focus. Certain leaders assist certain strategies and the drafting of the leaders before the first round gives the players a chance to look for extra synergy.
Definitely improves on the original game. However, be sure to get a few plays of the base game under your belt before adding this!
