New possibilites, new rules, new powers, new strategies. All of them are truly great addition to the game. Every game was different so far.

It would be 10 if not for the huge deck that is hard to shuffle and irritating when have to search through to find start worlds

-- edit - up to 10 --
forget about it. Shuffling is not a problem any more for me. This expansions is PURE DEAD BRILLIANT!

Excellent. Race just keeps getting better. And you don't even need to use the Takeover rules to enjoy this one.

Fantastic so far. Don't see why I won't continue to love it. Each logged play represents a play that includes the base game and The Gathering Storm expansion.

At last some weapons for player "interaction". This expansion heals the wounds that I received after opening "the Gathering Storm". It was a minor letdown 'cause of the low card count. This time there's no disappointment in the air. The new 6-cost devs open up new ways to go for the win. Also, the new Goals are a nice addition, as the old ones started to give you the feel "been there-done that" after a few consecutive plays. Thumbs up for this one! Hopefully the next expansion develops the war-element further...

I tend not to play with takeovers, because it seems like a lot of upkeep for a relatively rare event.

I track my plays according to the most recent expansion used, so a logged play of RvI means that I played with both expansions.

I wouldn't play the game without it (unless teaching the game to someone new).

The middle child of the RftG family... It finishes what The Gathering Storm started - by fleshing out the strategies there introduced, while at the same time it builds the foundation for the last expansion - by speeding up card flow and introducing a preview of direct conflict mechanics (but with just this expansion I've seen a takeover happen probably once in a hundred games). Still, it's a 'must have' item - The Gathering Storm feels incomplete without it and The Brink of War really requires these extra cards.

These new cards rock! This is exactly what the first expansion should have been.

The new cards boost all colors rather equally, and have lots of nifty new special powers. Produce/Consume, Explore and Military also get lots of boosts, and then there's some Development specific stuff as well. You also get to choose from two starting worlds now, instead of just getting one and sticking with that.

Based on the early information, I was quite worried about having to deal with way too many annoyingly direct Star Wars references and scifi clichés. Luckily, those have been limited to only a few cards, and they do not interfere with the RftG universe too much.

Includes:
- 3 new start worlds.
- an extra Research Labs, and a seriously improved Gambling World.
- 40 new cards (19 planets, 7 six-cost devs, 2*7 other devs).
- 5 new goals.
- Action cards for a sixth player.

The new attack mechanism tries to be a hindrance on the now overcharged military path, but succeeds only in adding an unnecessary fiddly bookkeeping element to the game.

A bunch of new good cards and completely unnecessary takeover rules.
I think this expansion disbalance the game strategies a bit, but need more plays to make sure.

UPD: I was wrong, this expansion adds several new strategies to the game, and it's very good one.

UPD2: Ok, it's 10, I don't see myself playing RFTG without it other than for teaching purposes.

not played with takeovers- we just use new cards and goals.
Expansion is costly, but must have(after Gathering storm) for someone who love RFtG...

Second expansion
More cards which makes deck bigger (which expands many of the strategies), and increases randomness. That`s why mixed explore is needed, to go through the deck smoothly. Take-overs are fine, but they happens rarely.

It's not a question of whether it will be purchased...rather, a question of when will it come out! 6 players would cover most game group sizes Acquired Friday July 17, 2009

The deck is getting big, but I think it's just a matter of making lemons from lemonade instead of hunting, even with the awesome new explore powers.

Makes this game an 11 in my book. The expansion that finally has my wife enjoying this game! She used to complain that she could never find the cards to fit her chosen strategy (she tends to stick to her initial choice of strategy), but now there are enough cards to make this a non-issue for her.

Excellent expansion to an already excellent game. This really makes green planets much more viable and brings in some other interesting planets and techs. I don't know how much I care for the rebel vs imperium conflict, but it is another interesting addition potentially.
