The expansion adds a lot of shy creatures, which seems to make the game last longer.

Paid about $6 for this. See my comments on Ark. I mixed these in with my base set, so we always play with the expansion.

A sweet little expansion to the basic game that, unlike a lot of expansions, actually makes the game better!

Same rating as base game. Expansion adds more of the same.

I'm sad that most of the art is not by Doris.

However, the cards are a cheap and easy way to spice up the game a bit. Only the Woodworm is tricky to explain.

--Dec2006-- Fun addition to the Ark universe. The new cards are pretty, and the tiny collection of new rules (Woodworm) is entirely palatable. I'm not sure it makes the game better, but it certainly doesn't make it worse.

Mostly adds more cards, which means more time. The number of animals in your supply becomes a limiter before the game ends (although it is easily solved by returning any second complete "sets" of player animals).

Not necessary, but lovely, especially when you're a fan of Ark or of Doris. Quite good for such a price.

With this expansion, game gets a little longer (don't worry, it's still short enough) - so different timing is needed.

Some nice extra characters but also some odd ones. Not all pictures are by Doris. The extra cards lengthens the game a little and there are one or two rule changes to acommodate this.

A good expansion to a neat game. The only downside is that it makes the game a bit long. Overall Ark is a fun area majority game, with some tricky placement rules that keep things interesting, and some beautiful artwork. Bonus points for a small box and a cheap price.

Honestly, I don't think this adds anything to the game. But then, it doesn't take anything away either. All in all, it adds a little length to the game, and a little more variety, I suppose, without changing it in any fundamental way.
