this expansion is very interesting. it really but a long term strategy in the game but it not crucial to complete the scroll to win. nice surprising addition to the game that changes your thought process but keeps the mechanics and feel of the game. very good expansion.

Although at first glance, I was unimpressed by this expansion, I really like what it does for the game: It gives players differing, but overlapping strategic paths to pursue right from start of the game. It also adds an element of "chicken" to the game, as you push your luck by waiting as late in the game as you can to cash in your scrolls, but you don't want to miss the opportunity altogether!

Very interesting expansion that brings a lot of tension to which and when you will deliver your frescoes. For advanced players only, but worth to play with it!

A simple expansion that introduces potential for scoring bonus points when restoring tiles in a particular row & column. The longer you delay using these bonus tiles the more you'll score, but if you leave it too late you'll miss out.

A tolerable €8 unboxed price at Essen 2010, but a ridiculous price when later released.

This expansion makes perfect sense with the game. I would not play without the expansion in any game of Fresco unless I was teaching people unfamiliar with Euro games in general.

Bought Essen 2013 w/base game. A must have addition, the goal of scoring the scrolls is great and when you get the double scroll it feels so satisfying. I will never play without it.

A bit swingy components as you could easily get screwed of a lot of points if you're greedy (or unlucky!), but still fun and a good goal to keep you focused.

This mini-expansion adds an interesting mechanic to the game and when combined with the other built-in expansions makes the game much better than the vanilla version.

A cool addition, and I'm glad I have it, but it really was very expensive for what it is.
It bring some interesting strategy to the table, but much more in a multiplayer game rather that just 2.

I could see this adding an interesting depth to veteran players. We don't use it as it just adds too much to think about to an already solid game.

ASL ... yes, this is my Desert Island Game. If I have to give up all my 3000+ games and only allowed to keep one, this would be it. This bloody game stood the test of time. Around for more than 25 years - simply the best.

The components are pretty much insignificant (10 tiles), and the rules and the gameplay are very easy and straightforward. It adds some little "depth" that will modify some of the decisions you make during the game, but nothing more. It does not have enough entity to be called "expansion"; even the modules from the base game are 5 times this "promo".

I will probably include it in at least some of my games, especially if I do not add other modeules, but the added content justify its price. This is the kind of things that are gifted during conventions or promoed.

And they have made a box for this? Are they mad or what?

I would rate this with 5 or 5.5 if it were promo. Being an "expansion" or even module, I'm afraid I have to ask more out of it.

Inkább szerencsealapú kiegészítő. Bár ezzel nyertem a játékot, de csak azért, mert a végén jó helyen volt a püspök, így csak ezzel 24 pontot kaptam. Nekem nem nyerte el a tetszésemet.

Ridiculous pricing for 10 cardboard pieces. Doesn't add much, but can decide the game. Luck plays a big roll for a 30-point gamble.

Este es uno de mis favoritos. Diseñado para jugar con las 4 expansiones, es entretenido. Balancea estrategia y suerte.Y cada expansión puede cambiar el curso del juego ya que modifica las reglas iniciales. Es un juego que solo hasta el final se sabe quien sera el ganador.
