I've only played the progress version once, but I found it didn't add much to the game. I've never gotten sick of the basic game, even after a lot of plays.

Green is the colour, football is the game; we're all together, and winning is our aim!

We only play the progress version - minus the auction rule.
This is how it was taught to us - we like it!

I've only played the actual game once with other folks, and that was to teach it. I have played both the base and progress games on Yucata.de and I think I prefer the progress bonus tiles.

The progress version will put more pressure on your economy to afford bonus tiles, then the auction eats even more money. So, to my mind, the economic squeeze is the biggest shift as you add rules.

I like games that make you struggle and flounder for money, so I like the progress tiles.

I only use the auctioning rule in 4p games, where the number of times each player goes first is uneven to begin with. And then to save time we just use it in rounds 5 and 6

Vanilla Vikings all the way!

This game doesn't need any more chrome...

I play mostly with the family. Basic Vikings works best for us.

I've not played in a while, but if I recall correctly, we've also played and enjoyed adding only the auction rules (i.e. without the other advanced rules / special tiles). (Even though doing this is not explicitly suggested/supported by the rules.)
