Paul, Have you played the base game? If so, does the expansion make it worth the extra time?
I was in Paul's game. We only played with the fifth player pieces, nothing else was added, which was probably a detriment to the experience. Only the owner had played before so it was a learning game for most of us. As Paul said he was a runaway leader that nobody could really stop in the final week.
It was OK, but watching Paul play out 10 workers in the final week was tedious. I'd play it again but not with the same configuration: either fewer players or with something else added in to get some sort of options other than generating a tiny amount of income whilst watching others generate a lot more by completing orders.
