(Mar. 2011): I'm using the updated Steam rules. I picked it up primarily so that I could play with my wife, and I'm hoping we'll get the hang of it soon, unfortunately, you have to jump in with the advanced rules, which is a bit overwhelming at first.

The new characters make it worth picking up. The new cards don't improve it much, in my opinion, and I prefer it with 7 rather than 8 players, so the extra renegade doesn't do much for me, either.

The ships are a neat addition. I need another play or two to decide how much I like it.
UPDATE (Mar. '14): It's a bit swingy, depending on if you draw one of the ships early enough, but bringing down a "ship hammer" on your opponent is pretty satisfying.

I like the retrieve mechanism used here. The temptation to hold on to your powerful character cards needs to be balanced with the need to look through the other cards in your deck.

The almost-naked ladies might make this one a little awkward to play in certain contexts, but the pairs and free cards (I can't play boosters? Take THAT!) make it pretty neat.

Sort of the flip-side of the Vulca. Pitting the two of them against each other makes for a good battle!

Cool for the extra tiles you get, but the extra rules aren't much to speak of. I don't have Hunters & Gatherers, so I can't say anything about the Scout expansion.

Most of the people I've played this with don't like the added conflict. I'm not sure that I do, either. If I want a game with lots of direct conflict, I don't tend to reach for Carcassonne.

I think it makes the game a bit too cutthroat. A good way to annoy people who prefer the gentler side of Carcassonne.

(Aug. 2011): I like! I have to say I'm getting a little worn out on Dominion at the moment, though. So I'm taking a bit of a break from it. I'm not entirely sure how this one stacks up to the other expansions.

I've had it in the card mix, but I haven't bothered to buy it yet. I'm sure the time will come though, but till then I'm not going to give it a rating.

UPDATE (Sept. 2010): Kinda goofy, but definitely worth a look if there aren't too many ways of getting extra cards in your hand in a given layout.

It's more Dominion, and I'm fine with that. The duration cards are a nice addition, and they don't slow down the game too much.

Very cool card! My favourite of the promo cards so far. Getting four of these is by no means a guaranteed win, but it is a viable strategy. (Especially with councillor!)

One play isn't enough to rate this. Fun with a group who are familiar with the base game, but I'm not convinced it adds enough to be worth it for the added complexity.

Kind of a pain to get the wares cards and the other cards in the right ratio, but there's some neat variations that I'm looking forward to trying.
UPDATE (Nov. '09): Now that expansion 2 is out, I don't need to worry about the ware/non-ware ratio anymore. Yay! (This rating only when using both expansions.)

Takes away from the base game, in my opinion, since true matches come up less often. Perhaps with larger numbers of players, it gets more interesting.

(Apr. 2011): It's hard to to know when to pick a leader, but I tried it a couple of times in my last game and I won, so I guess they aren't so bad!
UPDATE (Aug. 2011): I don't bring it out when teaching, but whenever all the players have played before, there's no reason not to include it. I tend to buy a couple of leaders per game, and it seems to work out for me.

The one thing that makes this better than the equivalent PitchCar Mini extension is the bridge, which which gives this a bit more flexibility.

It's hard to know how to rate this one. I'd rate the solo-play at around a 7--it's fun, but not how I'd prefer to play the game. The new cards and homeworld are great-they just add more to a game I already love, so that gets a 10. I haven't tried the goal cards yet, so that may change my final rating, but I think I'll give it a 9 for now.

(May '11): A solid improvement to an already great little game. The experience with fewer (less than 6) players is definitely improved. I'm curious to see how it plays with more players.

This game seems to be infinitely expandable! This adds a little more chaos to a game that some might think is too predictable.

It's fun, but all the added complexity doesn't quite add up to an equal amount of added fun. Too random for its length. I still like Seafarers better.
