The two expansions for this game deserve? Improve the game? Enrich it? They also improve the game for two? Thanks.

I only have Spirits of Niagara but I think it really improves the base game.

The double space canoes are the main improvement, which makes it easier to steal gems from people and also can increase a player's overall speed of collecting gems.

The beaver, the hurried Elk, and the whirlpool are small things that add some nice touches but nothing at all major as compared to the double space canoes.

If you like Niagara, it's a very good purchase. It does not change the player count though. As noted below, Spirits does add a sixth player. But minimum players is still 3.

I'm not too interested in getting any other expansion stuff, because with all the added stuff in Spirits, the game gets close to being a little bit too fiddly.

I really like the Spirits of Niagara expansion and for me it took an alright game and turned it into a really good game.

I believe the expansion added a sixth player as the base is only five players.

Spirits: sometimes we omit the whirlpool: upside it that players get home more often, downside is fewer players going over the falls (i.e. can be good for kids). But I wouldn't play Niagara without the extra paddle cards, the elk and the beaver.

Joe: doesn't really affect play that much, you sometimes get a bonus gem, which is nice.
