Love the game ... but love it even more with this expansion. Adds a nice layer to the game without taking away from the original flavor and spice.

This expansion makes the base game perfect. It fixes everything that you would want fixed and adds so much more. Plus it adds the option of more players. This is a must have if you own the base game.

This is a must if you have the base game. You then need 5 or 6 to make it work, too loose with 4 using the expansion. It plays 6 beautifully and there is not too much downtime which is a real danger with 6 player games.

I think I can only think of one other great medium euro that will play 6 as good as this.

I will never bore of playing this, one of the gaming group I goto regular is not keen on this so I don't play it anywhere near as much as I would like to.

A beautiful expansion to a beautiful game.
Even with fever than 5 players, we allways use the expansion - it improves the base game in all the right ways.

But they didn't include the 6 cards from Spielbox Magazine :_(

This is hands-down the best expansion for a game I have ever acquired. It does nothing bad to the game, adds two players to the game, vastly improves the game in a couple ways, and the improvements work even when using it with the original 2-4 players. The only comment we have found is that with six players you end up with a few players forced to choose Kings Court (taxes) or Marketplace, we have been contemplating adding an additional spot or two. Most supported options were Castle (the grey temp workers) or adding a third Craftsman spot to the board.

Takes a pretty good game and makes it awesome! Maybe the best 6-player Euro. No longer interested in playing with anything other than five or six ...

Makes my favourite game even more favourite.
Seriously though the expansion balances the craftsman choices, provides greater choice for worker placement, and basically just balances out the original game.

And the expansion is fabulous as well! The extra places to put your pieces add even more strategy to the game. The only issue I could say I have with the set is that with the additional 5th person, the game can take a long time to play.

Every expansion to any game should accomplish what this expansion does. It expands the original game to a whole new level of play, turning a very good game into a great one. The new options make the end-game much more competative. If you get the original game, get this as well.

$29.99. Expands the game to allow 5 or 6 players. Includes expanded area on the board itself, and expanded rules that work even if you don't have 5 or 6 players. Very good expansion. There's not much in the box itself, but it works for me. I didn't feel ripped off with the price of the expansion for this one.

Great expansion. Being able to play with up to 6 players is always a plus in my book (too many games max at 5). I really like the additions.

The expansion is good for 5-6 players, and can be used with 4, but beyond that it probably shouldn't be used.

Love the new options, makes the game run a bit longer with more players, but more interesting choices. Definitely pays to diversify with more players, though. It is hard to concentrate on one path to victory points.

A must have if you own the base game. Adds a lot to the 3-4 player game. I like having the ability to play with up to 6, but play 4 more often. This expansion is just that, an expansion of the base game mechanics and rules that offers a few new choices, which is what the game is all about. It doesn't change the game or make the game overly complex like many game expansions do.

Strong expansion that not only allows for additional players but also introduces more flexibility in stragegy by giving players more choices, expecially in terms of generating much-needed money, which is tough in the base game.

Pillars only weakness in my gaming circles was it's max 4 players. With the addition of this expansion it's seeing a lot more table time. On top of that, it adds so much to the game I doubt we'll play without it regardless of the number of players.

I didn't like Pillars of the Earth very much until I played it with this expansion. I think this expansion makes the game more interesting: the players have more choices regarding worker placement. The random pulling out of the bag is fixed with a balancing mechanic. There are more cards than necessary - so you can't predict what workers are coming as the rounds continue. To top it all off, the artwork and game quality is excellent.

Like the new options available and all of the cards fit in well, not sure they're all equally useful but that's the luck of the game. Also the enhanced numbers in each deck add a nice degree of unpredictability.
A worthy addition to the base game, makes it better (fixes the Master Builder some people have an issue with), but for me the best change is not being able to rely on certain crafters etc coming out. I think that increases the games longevity

An expansion to increase the player numbers to 5 or 6 that plays for 2 - 4 too. With two players the extension board means there is so much choice so will most probably use when more than 2. But the extra cards means more variation every time it is played. Oh and the artwork - beautiful.
