This expansion made my experience of the game much better, if only for the extra action per year. The bards really make things a bit harder, but I do appreciate the alternate action tables.

An excellent expansion that adds a variety of new monsters, adventurers, traps and spells. The new 'unique opportunities' shake things up and the new Paladins are fun too. However, I'm finding that I'm doing even worse at this game now that the expansion's included - as if that were even possible!

More DL fun! All plays will be recorded under the base game. If you liked DL, you'll like the expansion. If not, this won't improve the game for you.

Great expansion. A hard game gets harder, but with more possibilities, While the name-giving festival is rather weak, all the other new add-oins, especially the new monsters an new actions, are superb.

Rating slightly lower than the base game.

The expansion introduces _a_lot_ of stuff (and more importantly - rules governing all this new stuff), but at the cost of siginificant playing time increase, significant raise of entry bareer and significant raise of the 'return' bareer (i.e. you need to invest a lot of time and effort to refresh to yourself the game with the expansion). Rules are close to unmanagable at this point. Yeah, you can look up the details during a play, but generally I prefer to focus on the strategy instead...

I like new components of the game (i.e. bards, special actions, 5th season, new rooms and monsters, new paladins), but not all. Pets seem unneccessary random element (and not well integrated with the theme/mechanics) and festival seems completely unneccessary mechanism producing almost accidental results.

All in all, a small disappointment. A lot of new stuff for unsatisfactory return. The game becomes just too long and rich. Euro-games shouldn't last 4+ hours.

Still, A LOT of effort put in this expansion. And it works. So, still a high note and I might even increase it in the future, once I internalize all the rules well and play without a feeling of being overwhelmed by them.

Expansion to the great "Dungeon Lords" game! Hope to play this soon.
Update: this expansion makes the game brutal and much more difficult. I think I have to relearn it from scratch. I love it but it isn't useful if someone new wants to try this game. This is really aimed at the experts.

Makes Dungeon Lords even more brutal. It's pretty fun and there are more interesting things with paladins (there are so many things that make people more evil now).

However, it does add a lot of playing time to an already long game. This is now a hard one to get off during the week.

For experienced players - you would always play the game with this, it's an expansion that works, lots of new layers.
For new players - steer clear until you have the game down.

I played it with my Happy Anniversary Edition, very important expansion, it adds a downtime because we have 2 additional seasons (1 on each year) and 2 additional combat rounds (1 on each year), but adds a lot of good stuff to the base game, a lot of different strategies and you can be better prepared to face the paladin. I recommend so bad playing the game with this expansion.

Wonderful expansion for a great boardgame!

The biggest and most important advantage is that the addition of festival season adds so much more opportunities to build up your dungeons and put those imps to work. This way the game allows you to utilize your early investments way better and moreover it allows every player to build a more 'personal' dungeon, each with different properties and weaknesses/strenghts towards certain types of adventurers.

The addition of the two new paladins, the pet cards, the bards, the new monsters, new traps is all meaningful: they do offer strategic opportunities.

The system with 'unique opportunities' is actually big fun, but unfortunately the 'mascarade ball' might add a little too much chaos/randomness into the game. Luckily this only happens once a game and in most cases you can prepare one season in advance - however, it would be rather unfortunate to some players if this tile were to be drawn in the final season.

All in all a great expansion which improves upon all aspects of the game. Do be prepared to add 25% gaming (and explaining) time to an allready long game, but in the end it is really worth it! Big thumbs up!

This is a good expansion, which adds more choices and an extra round that makes also the battle more difficult!

Unfortunately, it adds 30min. to the duration of the game, which I previously thought best!

A nice, solid addition to Dungeon Lords, which is one of my all-time favorite games. The pets are maybe a little on the cute side, but they add a great dimension to the game. The extra rooms and unique buying spots add some great variety. The new Paladins are all right. The Festival Season and bards also add some new twists. All these things are good for variety and replayability. But what I really was excited about was getting new monsters and traps! I loved the gameplay as it was, so just this made it worth buying this. Highly recommended!

Fun expansion that adds a bunch of new stuff. Doesn't alter the game that much overall though - changes yes, but fundamentally alters no.

Slight minus - makes the game longer, and DL is already a fairly long game. Only hardcore-ish fans need apply.

Although this expansion does make the game easier by adding a 5th round, it actually does not contribute a major new mechanic, rather more content and small mini-mechanics which are not absolutely needed. Although it is not bad at all, it is not essential either. The best mini-mechanic I liked are the pets. The 5th round is a notion, it can be applied even without the expansion.

Introduces ways to make your game session even longer (Festival Season), harder (multiple Paladins, and the new Minstrels) and more varied (Unique Opportunities, new tunnel tiles, etc).

When you combine this with the base game and several of the other little variants in the Happy Anniversary edition, you've got quite a pimped out, excellent game with enormous depth. Combined, I do feel it's the equal of Dungeon Petz, but both are keepers and the best Vlaada designs I've encountered yet.

An excellent expansion that adds more of pretty much everything you could possibly want. Ramps up the difficulty, but also puts more power into the hands of a clever Dungeon Lord. Bards can be a pain to deal with, but having an extra season and a few Dungeon Petz eases the pressure. Highly recommended.

I'm not thrilled about the length it adds to the game, but getting another road to get monsters and rooms, dealing with bards, and getting pets are lots of fun. I didn't think the festival tiles were a great addition. Most of them weren't strictly better incarnations of the space they replaced, just different. Still, I'll probably play with this more often than not.

Adds some interesting stuff to the game, but I really need to know the base game better to get the best out of this. Also makes the game a bit longer, not necessarily a problem but with new or AP-prone players might be a problem.

I really like the elements that this adds. The Festival adds a nice reward, the Pets are cool, and I like the modular boards that get placed in as well. This expansion might be the reason I liked my second play of the base game even more.

Almost brand new. There were 2 tares in a piece of connecting cardboard (pictures available), which does not at all affect the playability of the game. The guy I bought it from felt bad so gave me a 2nd copy free. So I have the 1st one available to trade (or sell?).

I wish the pets were called 'familiars' or somesuch (but get why are they are so named), but... when that is the largest criticism I can think of, it shows the team have done a good job. Adds so much to the core game, with some nifty additional one-season-only options, new adventurers, two paladins, and more of... well... everything!

All I can say is: keep up the good work. Would love to see another little expansion with more traps, monsters, and allowance for a dungeons to be a little more expansive/developed.
