I have all the current expansions for this game however with all the great games out there this only gets played in spurts. My question does the game work by just adding the extra two faction thirty card decks or should I also do something else... we don’t really wanna deck build and just wanna grab a few factions and play on occasion.

Sure. The new factions are not balanced relative to the original four, but games are still fun. We don't deckbuild every time, but it can be fun to craft your deck once you know each faction.

You will need at least a little bit of deck building to include the faction specific cards to the deck of the other factions (e.g., if you want to play the Aztecs, you should consider adding the Aztecs' cards to the other factions' deck whilst discarding the corresponding number of cards from each deck).

My recommendation is to play with the base game as long as you feel comfortable with those four factions, then include the new ones. The familiarity with the base game's factions will make the deck building a breeze not a chore. Hope this helps! meeple

Thanks ... I personally love deck crafting but in this case was looking for away that my teens and I could just grab a faction and play without having to make changes first.

Doesn’t seem like my want is a viable option though.

I took some time and built new faction decks for most of the factions to include the new stuff and now I just grab what I have and play. I would recommend crafting a set of decks so that the game stays balanced.
