Settlers of Catan – 5 to 6 players expansion

I had got the 5-6 players expansion of Settlers because we had enjoyed the basic game so much and thought it would be fun to have more people playing the game. yesterday Shreyasi's friends Guha and Sai joined, Aarthi, Shreyasi and me for a 5 player game of Settlers with the new expansion. The game is the same as the original with the expansion just offering extra hexes, cards and counters. The only change is an extra opportunity to build after everyone's turn. This ensures that we can trade intelligently and get rid of extra cards before the next player rolls a 7! Aarthi won with me just following at 8 points. After 30 rolls or so we got an 8! So much for probabilities. The trading phase however takes a bit longer because of more players. But the expansion retails at 20$. Too much for just adding 2 more players I think.
