just wanted to add that the reason I picked ticket to ride is because the other games play so well by themselves but after awhile you def need a new map for TTR. All of those add-ons would be well worth it though.

A glowing review from your boss? A raise? Don't you think you deserve to get them all?

Well, obviously. But what I deserve and what's in the budget are often at odds. Plus, if I was going to spend that much, I'd probably just get a whole new game.

Thanks! I guess I should add that I have the Asia map pack for TTR. I don't have expansions for any of the others.

Congrats! Pay raise is not in my employer's vocabulary. Production raise, quota raise, raise concern, raise suspicion and other variations are however. Ticket to ride gets my vote!

A huge +1 for Suburbia Inc!!! I don't always play with the other expansions listed, but we don't play Suburbia without this expansion anymore. A must-have in my opinion.

Congratulations and enjoy your new expansion, whatever you end up choosing!

This is after you take your spouse out for a nice dinner to celebrate, right?

(My wife has put up with her fair share of me having a bad day/week/month/job, so I make it a habit to share the rewards as well).

Even though I like 7 Wonders better, Suburbia Inc. adds the most to the base game.

TTR new maps!

I only have the US one, but I want to play on new maps, which more interesting stuff (like bridges etc.)

Thanks for your input everyone! I ended up going with Last Will: Getting Sacked, because I always pick 4th place I have had my eye on it a little longer, and because I'm the kind of weirdo that finds pleasure in rewarding himself for a good review with a game that encourages you to try to lose your job.

I don't think the Last Will expansion is particularly great, but that kind of makes it the perfect thing to splurge on! Especially considering the theme.
