I've spent a fair amount building up a base collection of games, so now I'm turning my head to expansions. I'm a bit overwhelmed by the options available to me, and as such any input would be greatly appreciated.

I was heavily into Heroscape briefly, but put the master set away some time ago. Would the expansions bring enough to the table to make this feel new again? Also, what expansion sets are the best in terms of enhanced playability and value?

Carcassonne was put away not by my choice, but rather my group. Does this change the game to any significant degree? Or is it pretty much just some new tiles to mix in?

Looks fairly good, and more beans is always a good thing. It seems like it might tilt the game a lot farther to the complicated and long side though. Do the rules easily fit into Bohnanza without complicating the game?

I just picked up Hunters and Gatherers the other day, and the price is right on this one. Do the expansions add much to either game?

Feel free to delete this since you haven't got the base game, but as a general point anyone with Mare Nostrum really Needs the Mythology Expansion, which makes the game so much better.

I've heard that this expansion adds a lot to the game, but I've never played it, so I can't judge for myself. I have enough trouble getting people together for the basic game, and I always like people to understand the basic version of a game before I introduce an expansion.

This turns straight old Elfenland into a real gamer's brainburner... so much so that I think I've only played the expansion once! :-)
