An excellent multi-player game, but has two major flaws. First, it takes forever to play. Second, the random calamities can completely take you out of contention if you're unlucky enough to get several "complementary" ones in a row.

A lot of the tiles help finish cities/roads that you might not have been able to fit in the original. The added risk/reward of cathedrals and taverns, don't really add much to the game for me. Personally I'd take out the cathedrals and ignore the taverns (scoring wise).

Nicely packaged, and adds a little something extra to two games. Will need to play more to see if the rating goes up.

A nice add-on - I like that it helps open up the starting board a bit, although it does potentially give a huge farm advantage in the early game.

I like this better than the original expansion - the addition of the goods tiles makes for a nice challenge for bonus points at the end, and the pigs are cool. This expansion essentially makes the River redundant.

"owned" in the sense that it came included with my printing of Citadels.

The special power buildings remind me a lot of the buildings in San Juan, and the alternate roles are ok for a change of pace.

This expansion is a must. Three additional factions, updated RSG rules, and more maps.

The expansion cards add a nice fun factor to that game that acts both to enhance the overall experience and also give a small boost to the person who's furthest behind on the VP track.

It's just an ok addition to the game. Once you've played Spice Harvest, other than the initial on-board placement, you start just like regular Dune.

It's ok as a system, but it introduces player elimination, which for me breaks the game.

Needs at least 4 players, 1 for the Allies, 2 for the Germans (each front) and 1 for the Russians. IMO of course.

You'll need a lot of space for this game - all the maps together (East+West+Med+VolgaFront) takes up an entire 8x4 table!

It's ok, and I bought it because I've been the Craigdarroch Castle, but it's not as dynamic a map as the original.

The North African map/expansion really only works well with East/WestFront, but the Spanish Civil War is a brilliant little gem of a game - it has all the complexity and flavour of the xFront system, but a small compact game that typically plays in an hour.

As others have noted, the MedFront part doesn't really shine on its own. My rating is mostly based on the Spanish Civil War portion.

The SCW game is an 8, the rest of MedFront gets a 6 - Rommel in the Desert is the block game of choice for North Africa.

Added note: While I have upgraded to *Front II across the board, I did buy the components for SCW from Columbia Games as it makes a great small wargame.

My rating for this item reflects not my interest/willingness to play Ogre as much as it reflects the amount of cool information that's in this sourcebook. If you're a big Ogre fan and get to play it a lot, you'd be remiss if you didn't try to find a copy.

This addition adds a Brothers Grimm flavour to the deck that can allow the tales to in a slightly more complex direction.

I felt this expansion actually made the game less fun and interesting than the base game by removing some of the interesting hinder-your-neighbour options.

The buildings aren't as cool as they look, and don't add enough to the game to make it very worthwhile. After several plays with it, we've stopped using the expansion and stick with the original.

One thing I really like about the TTR games is how they're different in subtle ways that have big game play differences. TTR Switzerland has some really nice innovations.

TTR: Works very well with 2 players and speeds the game up.

I like the bigger cards - that alone makes it worth owning this expansion.

For me, this is an example of an "expansion" being better than the base game.
