Very good expansion with nice new elements. Oh, and BTW, the first expansion box that I really NEED as it provides trays for the pieces of the base game which you usually had a problem to store (to throw everything in the holes is not great an idea...)!

Contains four different variants to mix in with the original game as you see fit and it all comes in a great box that let's you store all the components of the base game which makes setting up and putting away the game MUCH easier.

Nice addition, especially Cheesy himself. The best part of the expansion is still that you get a place to store all the bits from the main game.

Adds some stuff to Chateau Roquefort: a 5th player, the cheesy Gonzalez figure, and some extra tiles. Interesting stuff that makes the game more interesting for kids that are a little older.

The most essential bit from this expansion is the box: finally you can store all the stuff you need to play the basic game in this expansion box. Saves a lot of setup time.

You really want this expansion if you own the basic game.

The new additions to this expansion really change up the game play and allow for even more interesting choices during game play. Cheesy himself is cool enough, as he moves really fast and can travel over traps and rooftops, bu then there's also the gear tile, which allows you to shove an extra tile into the board for free. There's also a secret door tile, that lead into the hidden pantry (4 tiles on the outside of the board), that you can enter, in hopes of trying to score some easy cheese.

Oh and there's even mice for a 5th player and a new tower, for the 5th player to start in, that can be moved around the board, to block rows of tiles, from being pushed, for one of your actions.

Once of the nicest things, that they did with this expansion is the box and insert, that hold everything nicely. Not only from this expansion, but from the base game as well.

Overall, this is a really great expansion, that I'd highly recommend, if you enjoy the base game, but are looking to add a little more to it.

The Cheesy Gonzola figure himself introduces a bit of - not necessary good - chaos into the game. On top of that the rules are not overly clear on exactly HOW he moves.
The inclusion of a 5th player is usefull

The new additions (especially Cheesy Gonzola - it took me a while to figure out where they got that name from) are interesting. I feel stupid for not noticing why the box was so big (to store all the components, which is the most annoying part of the base game) until I looked at the other comments. I sat there, wondering, why is this box so big? What are all these weird spaces in the insert for? Still seems a little overpriced for what it is, but I'm glad to have it.

Good expansion for Chateau Roquefort. Not only adds much needed storage space for components of the base game, but allows the addition of a 5th player plus provides 3-4 options on alternate ways to play. Highly recommended.
Edit: We've played the Cheesy Gonzola rules and the Pantry rules. I especially like the pantry variant - it seemed to speed up the game a bit and made things more manageable for the kids. Cheesy Gonzola can be very powerful - especially fun when that tile is surrounded by holes!

Provides storage for all the components, which is nice since it was a bit tricky store them in the original box.

Several small additions:
- Adds a fifth player, which does not really improve the gameplay.
- A movable tower.
- A trapdoor tile which grants access to those tiles which are not currently on the board.
- A tile which lets you do two push actions in a turn.
- An extra neutral supermouse.

The additions are okay but by no means necessary.

Poorly written rules in this expansion. I like the added tiles and the fifth player, but cannot figure out how Cheesy Gonzola moves for the life of me.
This expansion is almost worth it solely for the excellent insert it includes that means you will never again have to use the POS main box insert to cram all your pieces in and fish them out every time you play.

Expansion to Chateau Roquefort.

The expansion, although adding new elements to the game, actually speeds it up. In fact the rules suggest increasing the goal. Rules for the expansion are short & easy.

I have had this expansion for over 2 years and even though I really like the base game, never got around to opening the expansion. I wish I had.

I love the play of the base game, but it has been my most frustrating game to put away--it was fiddly and we had to fit it all in just so--very time consuming. Then the game has to be disassembled in order to then re-set it up play. It was such a problem it has stayed on the shelf without getting played.

This expansion adds a 5th player, and extra tower, a special mouse, & 3 more tiles. Rules are included for four variations which can be combined. But the most importantly it is a storage box--it holds the pieces for the base game! The game suddenly takes up a lot more space on the shelf, but it is worth it.

Since opening this expansion however, I feel irritated toward this really fine company (Zoch). Now as I look at the expensive base game I realize I was purchasing only part of the game. In order to put it away properly the expansion is almost a requirement. That seems "cheesy".

Rated the expansion slightly higher than the base game because I feel the expansion improves the game by giving the sorely needed storage, and providing lots of re-playability with the rules for additional games.

I love the storage box. I still find the cheezy movement confusing. The extra special tiles will add a lot to the game if you don't already own the first expansion. This allows for 5, though I've yet to play it with four. This can certainly stand in as a family/adult game when all the components are used.

We often play with 5, so the tower was essential. But it was the storage options provided in this set that made it a must buy for me (perhaps OTT I appreciate). We haven't really played with all of the expansions yet, but I do like the look of what they'll do for the game.

--Oct2012-- An amusing and low-impedance expansion: it's easy to add; increases the tactical range of the game, but doesn't add significantly to the load of rules to remember. The fact that it makes game setup & cleanup easier is nice, too.

A very useful addition to the game - not least for the box which doubles up great as a holder for all of the small bits of the game that were so hard to fit into the base-game box.

Cheesy is the best addition. He speeds up the game a bit as well as adding an edge.
The 5th player rules are useful
Some will like the chance to shove an extra time - it doesn't bother me
The pantry rules also speed thing sup a bit and are fun.

I wish they'd added the cat (free from Essen) as well, but I guess you can't have everything.

Ups the fun, but also the complexity. Gonzola himself is a bit tipsy, preferring to fall over and lie down during the game. (Too much cheese tequila?) Otherwise a good addition to the base game.

The Cheezy Gonzola variant doesn't add much to the game. Adding a fifth player makes the game even more tiresome. I like the game better without this expansion. The box is nice to hold all the pieces in.

This Expansion for Chateau Roquefort adds an extra tower, some tiles, a special mouse wearing a sombrero and makes it possible to play with 5 players. Not to mention the box is a storage box for the original game components as well.

First impression:
Adds pieces for fift player, Cheesy Gonzola (a neutral piece that can be used by players), stairs to cellar where you can and most importantly a place where you can store your game pieces (both base game and expansion) when not playing! One of the most annoying things when playing base game only was taking mouses out of too tight holes where you had to keep them.
