House rules...

Decent expansion, but again house rules are your friend with this one. Otherwise:

1. Treachery is extremely underwhelming.
2. New Caprica is horrible.
3. Cain is stupidly overpowered.
4. Cylon Leader Agendas are way too imbalanced.

But all of these (well, perhaps besides 2) can be fixed with some minor house rules, and once that is done it's certainly worth playing.

But the base game doesn't "need" this. Play your first few games without ANY Pegasus components besides the plastic basestars and you'll find it a better game.

More Cosmic. New aliens are always nice, defender reward deck feels a bit overpowered.

Quests are frequently imbalanced requiring house rule fixes - although that could be said for a lot of other stuff in Descent. Treachery is cool, but some of the other additions (e.g. power potions, some of the new treasures) seem a bit unnecessary. Still a solid addition, should be added into the base game.

Makes the game from above average to great - no longer just a gateway game but rather a light strategy game that's easy to pick up but even experienced gamers can enjoy strategically. I'd consider this essential.
