Is this really a true expansion? Looks like it just adds a 6th and 7th player with a bigger box.

If I'm playing with 4 players is there anything in this that is useful?

If that's not an expansion, what would you call it? A contraction?

Well I guess I would word it more how other games have and call it a 6-7 player expansion if nothing is added at lower player counts.

Example Orleans 5th player expansion.

From what I've read it is designed to give you 6-7 players, with some cards that allow buying when it's not your turn to speed things along (otherwise with 7 it would be a loooong game), and the box will be big enough to fit future expansions (which hopefully means they've got them already designed, so that everything will fit in the future).

As far as I know it doesn't add in anything extra that you would use in a lower player count.

I'll be buying this, but just for the box.

I took the insert out of the base game box already, and just bagged everything.

Curious if, and when, I'll need a bigger box now?
