This is a fun variant with sea travel and different objectives. It does have quite a different flavor. While I love this one, I would probably go with Sands of Al-Kalim if I could only choose one expansion.

Probably my most played overlay. This expansion overlay brings sea travel to the game.

This is a great expansion, but only if you combine with the original game. We just set them side by side and have at it. By itself its not too bad, just seems a little slow in the adventure area. The captain rules can be strange at first but they are easy to learn.

A fun variation of Runebound that adds a ton of options to the base game, and, really, when its an adventure game like Runebound, more options are always more fun.

A very nice expansion. The game is different enough to feel like a new game, but similar enough to start playing quickly. I love it!

Excellent adventure and excellent additions to the game mechanisms.

The green, yellow and red challenge cards are the best in any expansion, although they don't attempt to tell a story like the base game does.

The blue cards are sea encounter cards which are of varying difficulty but the more dangerous ones can be escaped from. They're all very cool sea encounters - ghost ships, sea dragons and the like. Because they're not really blue challenges they don't give you 3 experience, they give you a specific reward instead. Often that reward is map tokens, which allow you to find legendary items and the Island of Dread. I find that I don't face many yellow challenges in this expansion, as I'm busy sailing around the world fighting blue challenges instead.

The silver challenge cards are generally very tough, but if you're facing silver challenges you have legendary items to fight them with. The big bad guy is Assif Shib-Sa who's very nasty indeed. He's like something out of a Lovecraft novel, so it's satisfying to destroy him. Also, he's more dangerous because you might have had to fight a few silver encounters already just to get to him.

The game also includes quests, which are like the quests from the base game except that you keep the card to denote that you've completed the quest, and there are sometimes rewards or concessions for that later in the game. It gives an impression that your character's fame is spreading. The map tokens, legendary items, captains, sea routes and terrain-modifying events are all very nice additions to the game.

I found this expansion to be quite different from the others in that its water/ship mechanic was really unique. If you love the base game then this is a worthwhile expansion to consider for your collection.

The end game is more difficult than the core set, though the early part is easier and yields more gold. The variance of enemies that can be encountered at sea gives the game a good flavor. You would think that the early part vs. the end game would even out but in reality it still causes the game to take longer than core set. The new items and Hero cards are great.

The largest and the best of all the "First Wave" Runebound Expansions. It adds 8 new characters, sailing and a whole new map with its own adventure. Lots of fun and a great way to keep things exciting and fresh.

Great expansion to the base game. Recommend using the quick advancement rules though because the end game is tough. It can bog down at the end when a few failures to conquer the Isle of Dread has weakened the players and there aren't many adventures left to stock up on money and experience.

The best expansion for Runebound yet. Great characters, speedier gameplay (with the island overlay), make Runebound a little more fast-paced, which is a nice change. Worth it for the characters alone, although all the other bits are just a bonus!

Excellent expansion! Voyaging is very fun and new enemy is quite fun, though very very difficult. The ending usually ends up being a little drawn out and long. What I really wish is that this came could interact better with the card and adventure expansions, though some of them work with a little twicking.
Worth buying for the new map, but be ready to house rule.

Another great big expansion for Runebound and again, this is totally worth the money. This game changes a lot, or modifies, from the basegame yet keeping the basic rules as they were. Biggest change here is the terrain as there's a lot of water and you'll need captains and other stuff to move across the map. Great!

Easy to incorporate into the main game, it adds quite a lot. The sea travel and captains are nice, as are the sea encounters. the game seems to be faster using this than the original game alone. Some small expansions had been added.

Cool theme, cool game mechanic and insanely hard! I guess it's the most difficult RB expansion. I disliked the map mechanic since there aren't plenty of map tiles and you'll end up stealing maps from other players and that really isn't so cool (ok, it's a Pirates' theme).
