The only thing I don't like that much is the boat pieces, but this is a purely aesthetic problem I have with the game. These pieces are too large and unwieldy compared to the ones used in Tsuro. They also seem to be made out of the same colored plastic as the original Tsuro pieces. This would not be a problem, except that the color scheme of everything else has changed. These pieces clash with the cool-color scheme of the board and the cards. But, this minor gripe of mine does not affect gameplay. It is still very fun and I still think it deserves 5 stars for that.
The reason it lost a star for me had to do with the added rules that come with the expansion. In addition the the base game, you also move several monsters around the board based on rolling dice. In theory, this should make game deeper or more exciting, but for me and the people I was playing with, we simply lost interest. It made the game seem completely out of our control and it really didn't matter how much thought you put into your turn, there was always a good chance that a monster would eat you. The constant rolling of dice in addition to laying a tile also seemed to drastically slow down the turns.
I love the base game and the art, and it will always be a go-to game for family gatherings, but the box also contains all the extra pieces that I really don't see myself using in the future.
One of the great things about Tsuro of the Seas is that it has dice mechanics. Which means there is luck involved. However, this game could be played just like the original Tsuro by removing the dice and the dragons for an even more pleasant and easy going gaming experience. but, even with the tension of dice rolling involved and the impending doom of ferocious dragons, the game has a slow pace that seems to fluctuate its speed between slightly fast and steady throughout a single gameplay.
Tile placement and drawing can get a bit tedious and most smart players often stay on the edge of the board, avoiding the majority of the dragons which means avoiding most of the action. The core mechanic of this game rely solely on the dragons the dice movement, which is actually a very cool idea until someone gets eliminated in which case they sit around and roll dice for the dragon movements and even then the level fun drops by about a fraction. And when there are 3 or less people still remaining the board the game seems to drag-on (no pun intended). In some cases, you'd probably to have implement "House Rules" to keep the game going and more interesting.
I don't think this game is bad, I just feel that this game needs the right gaming group and also a big group of players (8 maximum), I think a good group for this game is around 4-6 at least. Don't worry about age group, because this game can be a fun family game and could played with almost anyone who understand basic concept of tile placement, and dice rolling. I've had such a fun time with this game when playing with two separate gaming groups who felt that this game was a blast to play but also felt that it could go on and on and early player elimination would suck so much.
Get this game for some good family fun on a quick game night, get this game if you want something a little easy going with your gaming nights, get this game if you want to take a break from some of your more tense gaming sessions. get this game for a large gaming group. Don't get this game if you're looking for something that has sole competitive purposes. Overall it's a decent game that I am proud to add to my collection, hopefully you feel the same too.
