It's nice having new areas to visit, but it's annoying to have to balance the game by adding arbitrary new threats.

This can be a fun card, since it will let you get some nice attack cards that no one else has. Just slow and random enough to be well-balanced.

Some very cool cards, but by now the deck is too thick. It's annoying to decide on a certain strategy, and then never draw what you need. More cards means more luck, always, and there is no way to really manage this factor. Usually you're either very lucky, or just out of luck from the initial draw, and the game is a bit too long and complex for this to be okay. Takeovers are worthless chrome; an opponent may leave himself wide open to attack, but it won't matter most of the time because you won't draw the cards you need in order to do anything about it.

Virtually every game is decided by the luck of the draw. This is not a strategy game any more, if it ever was. I'd rather play St. Petersburg if I want a lucky game--it's much faster.
