Good stuff but the original version is best.

A jubileumiba 3 kártya lett ebből betéve, a 63-as, a 93-as és a Joker. A régi 18 és a 10 újabb kártyával együtt ezzel adódik ki a jubileumi 31 lapja. Mondjuk ennyi erővel ebből is átvehették volna mindet, de gondolom nem ütötték meg azt a szintet?! A hidat használtuk, de vita volt belőle, hogy a király területére benyúlhat-e. Szerintem nem, a tabu erre is vonatkozik, bár tény hogy nincs külön odaírva, de minek is kéne. Amúgy elég tápos lap, minden nagy értékelésnél hoz 1 pontot és amit tud az is jó. A 93-ast meg a jokert nem próbáltuk, amúgy a joker is nagy ötlet, jó hogy betették a jubileumiba. A big box ha jól látom pl. ebben több a jubileuminál, hogy abba mindet beletették! Így ott már 39 van 31 helyett játékosoknként?!

El Grande es un buen juego en su versión básica. Pero ciertamente la expansión mejora con creces su experiencia reduciendo el azar a mínimos casi nulos y aumentando el caos entre jugadores al máximo debido esencialmente a las acciones de los mismos. Se mantiene la esencia del juego base que es el control de áreas, que es lo que más me atrae del diseño del juego, e introduce respecto al básico la construcción de un mazo de juego para cada jugador y que la carta jugada más alta y más baja no ejecutaran su acción especial, ya que ejecutaran la acción del rey y del intrigante respectivamente. Si te gusta el Grande en su versión básica, esta es una expansión que lo hace, si cabe, más grande.

Best for 5 players. 30 minutes to learn. 20 minutes to setup. 150 minutes to play a 5 players game. This is an expansion for the King & Intrigant expansion with additional power cards and additional fiddly rules. I don't like this addition and it makes me to avoid choosing these in the actual game and therefore it is just another distraction bothering me throughout the entire game. Not going to be played unless my partners are extreme El Grande maniacs. :chalice: [blogpost=61620][/blogpost] Included in [thing=171908][/thing]

Not really required, but it does add more options to the K&I expansion, which must be used as well.

Came in Dicennial edition fall '07 from Gryfalia's Aerie. Not as fun as the original I think, the high numbered cards seem a waste, because if you have the highest number then you can only execute the King's strategy, or vice versa you can only execute the Intrigue if you have the lowest, I understand the strategy behind this, but doesn't ever seem to work out that way.

[I never add it to the basic game] Some interesting ideas, but I've doubts about some cards.

I would need to put some effort into learning the cards in order to feel adequately competitive with my group. However, it's effort I'm willing to make if we continue to play this version! For those who haven't played - it changes the game immensely.

Very interesting expansion. Lots of new options in the cards.

Changes El Grande towards more brutal & ruthless gameplay as everyone knows what you are about to do when revealing cards.

Base El Grande is a total 10 for me. I can't rate this as a ten...yet. Initial its an 8, because I could see playing this once in a while. Rating could jump to 9. It definately adds a different flavor and feel and neccesitates, I feel, a higher reactionary stance in the game. Especially considering you do not know what opponents selected as their hand cards.

I only have the subset of these cards included in the Decennial edition. I'm not sure why they didn't include all 11 cards but I'm assuming it is because of game balance. In any case if you're playing with Konig & Intrigant, more options is good.

Expansion que suprime algo del azar propio de "El Grande" This expansion reduces the luck factor of the original game
