All you get is progress and character cards?>> I'll probably one day pick it up but man would have been nice to get something else. New tiles, new function, resource, building, anything...

So long as it's not overly pricey, I'm pretty excited for it. It might have been nice to have a 6th player (though I'm not sure how it would work with the original boards.)

Well, you also get the special holder for progress cards. Which is apparently rather nice (and holds them when sleeved).

I wish more game companies designed inserts and materials for us obsessive sleevers.

Although it is rather pricy for "just a deck of cards", they are quite interesting and add some new mechanics on the basis of the development-card rules. IMO its elegant design to use already existing mechanics to add new features - and the development and character cards are a kind of interface for add ons, new rules etc.

I agree I was a tad disappointed that this is all you get. I would have really appreciated some more exploration tiles. Even if it was 4-5 this would have been great.

aahhhh
I'm interested to know if that insert will fit in the original box.
Thinking once this comes in I'm just going to dump the base game insert, bag everything up and throw the new card holder in.

I dumped the insert. I use only the tile tray for the tiles and the new box for my sleeved cards. It works well.

All elements and sleeved cards including War & Peace fit nicely in original box with insert. There is no need for a new box.
