This is one of those expansions that add something, but also take sometime away from the base game. I like the El Razul function, the multi-fruit tile and the drought tiles, but the "puppet" action changes the mood of the game into a direction I'd rather not go. The rating is for the expansion as a whole, so the "puppet" action brings down the rating. We just play without it.

The El Razul figure gives more opportunities to deliver the fruits. This makes the game end faster. It doesn't make Finca a better game (it is already good without the expansion), but adding the expansion also doesn't hurt. (adi)

The expansion is a welcome addition to the game. Playtime is shorter thanks to the multi-fruit windmill blade and the El Razul character, and the drought tiles make the game extremely tense, especially if you are playing a 2 player game with reduced fruits.

It is amazing how much was added by a few tiles. You could mix and match, using whichever of the four parts you want.

I suspect that only one we will use in every game is the Marionette tile for each player, though the any fruit windmill piece could also be added most of the time. The drought tiles might not see a lot of play.

There's no downside to this expansion for Finca. It adds a little bit of spice and variability while shaving a few minutes off of the game time. It even increases the likelihood of a fruit running out, one of the most entertaining--but rare--elements of the original game.

Only 1 play with the expansion so far - I like the flexibility it provides, but it was hard to move El Razul - there was a lot of bunching around him! I don't think this would happen so much in a 3-4 player game.

Ordered from SpielBox.
El Razul (what a cool name) serves to deplete the piles faster:

- The 1, 2, and 3 piles all become wild.
- The 6 piles are not affected
- The 4 piles become two wild pair piles.
- The 5 piles become wild full house piles.

The new windmill blades are OK.

The drought tiles are very good, because depleting the supply makes the game a little more cut-throat, which I like.

The marionette action tile is also good. I think it should have been included with the original game.

The rating for Finca increases with El Razul; hence, this expansion gets its own rating.

The best part of this expansion is the extra special action to move an opponent farmer and collect fruits. El Razul does not see much action because you do not want to give an advantage to your opponents (most likely it will be placed in a tile with "?"). The joker windmill tile is a OK. The drought tiles are nice but if you pick them up, you are more likely to please your opponents.

A very nice little expansion, that adds some nice options to game play. I'll probably be playing with this in all my future games now.

I like all of the new options, except for the El Razul figure. He just doesn't see much play as nobody really wants to move him anywhere, that will help their opponents, but he can be placed somewhere to help you get the bonus finca tiles easier.

We managed to win a copy of Finca: El Razul in a geek gold lottery. It's essentially more of the same. The joker windmill tiles are a nice change, but the drought tiles feel a little weird and the El Razul figure didn't really make a big impression either. Again, it would have been nice if the El Razul movement rules had some restrictions due to the map, but you're free to move him wherever you want. It's not a bad expansion, but certainly not a necessary one.

Adds a wildcard fruit blade (pick your fruit), drought tiles (fruit-free delivery for 2 VPs), a Marionette action tile (move an oponent's farmer and collect fruit), and the El Razul blade and figure (pick 2 of any fruit when lanidng on the blade and then move the figure; when delivering to the figure's community you can replace required fruit types with another type).

After a couple of plays, I think the game is better minus the expansion.

Nice addition to the base game that does not make the game play longer. Does not feel tacked on.

Maybe the best part of the expansion is the drought tiles. Easy points and makes the produce more scarce.

Such a shame El Razul isn't a funky meeple instead of a cardboard standee, but ce la vis. Not 100% sure the drought tiles are well-balanced, but a little houseruling should tidy them up nicely. A very worthwhile addition to the core game.

Szerintem jó kis kiegészítő lett összerakva az elemekből, bár ezek az elemek tovább növelik a szerencsét.
Általánosságban mondható, hogy 3-4 játékosnál jön ki jobban a kiegben rejlő potenciál. Nekem tetszik!
Új lapátkerekek: most már jobban kell figyelned, mert egy vagy két gyümölcsből nem lesz 2 lapátod és ennek megfelelően alkalmanként nehéz lesz őket megszerezned, ki kell használnod minden lehetőséget.
El Gazda: hasznos segítség szállításnál.
Marionett lapka: még nem volt rá szükségem, inkább jól jött a végén az a 2 pont.
Aszály lapkák: 3-4 játékosnál a mínusz 2-2 gyümölcs igen nagy érvágás lehet, könnyebb lesz a többieket is "szívatni".

This mini expansion adds a few quirky little twists to the base game.
There is a new tile, the marionette, allowing to move an opponent's meeple. There is El Razul himself, changing the possible delivered goods in the location in which stands. There are a couple on new special windmill tiles. And finally a couple of drought tiles.
Nothing super fancy, but nice additions to a clever little gem of a game.

The two Windmill pieces and the Puppet are fun. The two Draught tiles are okay. El Razul have very little use when played according to the rules (as he is mostly placed in a location where he doesn't do anything).
Fine freebie, but nothing special

Plug in and play mini-expansions for Finca. Two new windmill tiles that allow wild fruit draws, or moving El Razul around the board (allowing wild fruit deliveries). Two new fruit tiles which cause drought and the market to dry up a little. Finally, a new action tile for each player, allowing you to use another player's pawn on the windmill. Fun stuff, but Finca didn't really need it.

One of these expansions which makes the original game a bit better (my experience is, that almost always the expansions makes the basic game worse). Unfortunately even with this Razul-expansion Mallorca/Finca feels a bit too dry for my taste. But if I have to play this game, I hope there is this expansion available as well...

El Razul: an interesting mechanic; it seems more important when competing for the bonus tiles
Wild windmill blade: a nice easy addition
New action tile: great, a must add
Drought tiles: don't seem to do much in the two-player game.

All-in-all, a fun but not really necessary expansion.

A fine but inessential expansion for Finca. Adds several bits of chrome (with some rules which were unclear as written and sent us to the forum for clarification), but I like the base game perfectly well without the expansion too. The dude who lets you sell any kind of fruit seemed only occasionally relevant in the games we played.

Some people will love this expansion, but not me. I think it's great for playing really casually because it really increases the flexibility. However, I love to play Finca really hardcore so I'll leave this one out.

One of the best parts is that you can add bits of the expansion as you like so if there are parts that don't float your boat you can just leave them out.

I crafted a PnP version of this expansion from the images here. Used full sheet label to print on and then stuck the new fruit tiles onto the two blank ones that came with the game. I affixed the action tiles and windmill tiles onto a piece of floor tile and cut those out so they are nice and thick. Now just need to get the girlfriend to Sculpey a figure of El Razul and we are ready to go.
