The Dancer is almost a game within a game. It is quite different from the other armies. I think I like the newly published official version better than the fan published version. It takes some getting used to, but I like that they work together as a group, rather than having to stay apart.

Looks like the best idea for an expansion for NsHex.
Need to play more, cause I have NO idea how to play it well, at least today.

A really exciting army which requires both the Dancer player and his or her opponent to rethink their strategies completely.

Unusual Neuroshima Hex army due to having only 3 units ("objects") on the board instead of a single HQ! New type of action tile lets one of the objects perform one of its actions (a shot or hit... or a new healing action). Each object has 10 hit points, and if any of them die, Dancer loses. This introduces some different strategic thinking.

Unfortunately it required some new rules on how its weird 3-object-no-HQ paradigm interacts with various other armies, but on the whole it's straightforward. We only felt significant uncertainty with respect to how it interacts with Steel Police's steel net.

We played with it every day in May 2013.

Initial Rating: 8.0 (December 2013)

WOW, just wow. I love Neuroshima Hex, so it is no wonder that I like all the expansions, however I wasn’t expecting this. The Dancer is the most innovative and different army out there. It comes with just 3 units, all the rest are support tiles.

Love the art, so far I have lost every match I have played with them, they are (IMO) the hardest army to master in the Neuroshima world. Not sure if The Dancer army is underpowered, but it is a blast to play with it.

For now I want to play more with them, also I have a couple of new Neuroshima armies I haven’t tried out yet.

Needs quite some plays to grasp its strategy, which I haven't managed yet. Always a pain in the ass when playing against it in the iPad version. Doesn't stand much of a chance in a 4p game though.

Adds to the base game:

It works, which makes it quite an impressive design, as it plays a very different game from all the other armies.

However, it's easily my least favorite of the official armies, and there's a number of fan armies I like a lot better too. It changes the feel of Neuroshima Hex!, too much for me. I love the back-and-forth play of Neuroshima Hex!, the variety of tiles, the puzzles, the balancing between board control and damage, fighting over the different parts of the board, the clever combinations... With The Dancer, that's all a bit duller. There's still a lot of tension, but that's mainly because the game can be over in single battle.

(It's better than the original fan design, though. So if you got that and liked it, it's very much worth it to upgrade.)

Armies don't have to be all that different to have a different feel. A game between Moloch and Hegemony will be totally different from a game between Borgo and Outpost. And Sharrash proves there's still a lot of room to explore when it comes to new abilities.

Dancer is really nice if you want a change. But you know what? I don't want a change. There's enough variety in all the different armies that I don't need one that puts everything on its head.

Get other armies before you get this.

Now that's what I call a weird expansion. The army introduces a lot of changes to the base game's rules and fighting with or against it has a very different feel than playing any other NS army. It basically feels like a boss fight - just three, but overpowered units. It's still suprisingly balanced, but it will probably take a while for me to figure out strategies for use when playing with Dancer on either side.
