I love Wiz-War, and I love Wiz-War with a lot of players. So this expansion is essential.

Perhaps not essential, but it only makes the game more entertaining. This has some of my favorite cards of the game.

Somehow I never bought the second expansion set. No idea why. This game really needs a quality reprint. We'd rebuy it for better components.

Feels better now that the number card distribution is fixed.

Get the expansion. More players = more fun. It's a turn based game with a limited board area, so more players help speed the game up without taking away from the initial game strategy and mechanics.

Improves on base game but can draw it out some because controlling summoned monsters takes a little extra time.

It definitely improves the game to add more spells and object types, as this expansion does. Monsters that wander around are pretty cool.

His destructive programming is taking effect. He will be irresistibly drawn to large cities, where he will back up sewers, reverse street signs, and steal everyone's left shoe.

626 was designed to be a monster, but now he has nothing to destroy. You see, I never gave him a greater purpose. What must it be like to have nothing, not even memories to look back on in the middle of the night?

More players, more cards, more combos, new monsters and some other things bring more chaos and fun to the base game. This formula maintains the basic feeling of the game, just adds more things! The extra players are always nice to have, but with seven or eight can be a real pain if you get eliminated soon. The good thing is that with 5 or 6 is much more fun, but I'd prepare another game so that the ones that get kicked out can entertain themselves while the rest of the crowd finishes the game.

The greatest change this one introduces are the monsters which, basically, are nasty things that you invoke and control. Usually, they don't have much life, deal in between 1-4 physical damage and have a special ability that varies from going through walls to regeneration, among others. They're fun to play and can be quite nasty for other players if they don't kill them soon, which would mean that they'll spend attack spells on the creep little guy instead of targeting another wizard, you for instance. The bad thing is that, even though they can be used in some combos, don't have the combo potential other cards have.

The best of this expansion is, undoubtedly, the extra players, but the new cards are also nice additions, increasing the number of combos available, forcing players to be more "creative" in the way they play their cards. Monsters are an unnecessary yet fun add on.

I believe you find life such a problem because you think there are the good people and the bad people. You're wrong, of course. There are, always and only, the bad people, but some of them are on opposite sides.

Purchased from Tom Jolly's site when I got the base game. It did not come in a box. It was in a manilla envelope and he wrote on it Expansion Pack 1 and Expansion Pack 2. Apparently both are combined into just one on BGG. I haven't played with any part of the expansion yet though.

1st and 2nd expansion sets. Second expansion isn't as good as the first; artifact cards are broken even by Wiz-War standards and will typically throw the game instantly.
