Hi all,

I'm not really interested in the added complexity - the new board, the business, etc. But I definitely want to get my hands on the additional pets, cages, upgrades, exhibitions and customers.

What do you guys think - is it worth the price for only the extra bits that integrate seamlessly into the base?

I think it is, it's how I use it.
More pets = more fun.
I'm not put off by the added complexity of the extra stuff ( it's negligible) , I just personally think the game play is not enhanced by it.

Pets alone are worth it.

I played it that way for a good while. I finally did add the actual Dark Alleys to a game or two, and while it's nice, it's also not really needed. It makes the game easier, but also more complicated.

I find the pets more complex and complicated than the new board. I actually find the new board quite straight forward. The new cages, upgrades and exhibition and easy to plug in.

Would I buy it for just the pets, cages, upgrades, exhibition and customers? Probably not.

This expansion I am very conflicted about, because while I think is great, I don't think the base game needed it.
