I have the old school 3rd edition and have never played any of the expansions. I am finally willing to break down and get one. But I'd have to try and find one on ebay or in the marketplace because it'd have to be the older 3rd edition. Which expansion would you recommend?

Do you want more of the same (like Seafarers) or a fundamental different game (Cities and Knights)?

I would have voted for both Seafarers and Cities & Knights if the poll would have let me.

The nice thing about Cities and Knights is that it balances with the original game really well, without adding a lot of extra components (mostly all those extra hexes). You have a lot of added strategy options to wind your way to victory.

Traders and Barbarians is great in that it adds a lot of playable scenarios as well as options to add into the game whenever you want - we always play with the harbormaster, but we'll often add in the fish and/or the river for fun.
