Hi All,

I own the original game, and love it. I didn't know this expansion existed until SUASD did a review of it - but I am always weary of their reviews.

So I need honest views of how much this adds or improves the game. The game is fun as it is - nice, simple, manic and not over complex. I get that the ideas of dwarfs, fighters etc are not very strong in the game and my understanding is this expansion looks to expand that fantasy option - but I don't want to make the game too complex.

What are others opinions?

Hello,

I'd say that the content in the expansion is not strictly necessary until you finish the base game. However, the tokens might help you out (e.g. swap roles between two players)

I dont care for any further expansion. Not until they come out with Android/iOS App sound timer which they promised long time ago (https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1837455/magic-maze-androidi...)...
The atmosphere when playing this game in silence is just too weird...

Funny how different we all are. We greatly enjoy the silence and different atmosphere. Also we don't see any need for sound/digital timer.

It adds more options, many of which allow the game to be easier. I like the idea of playing through permutations. I'd really love a developed point system where you add points as you add in easier pieces and subtract them as you add tiles and/or more restrictions.
