I didn't realize when getting this that I needed the 5-6 player expansion, and the cities and knights expansion before I could use it. I thought you could directly expand it on the original, but that can't be done. I have no doubt it will be fun, but keep in mind that you need the 5-6player expansion and the cities and knights expansion before you could use this item.

The amazon description and the "Game tree" that came with the original settlers game says you need only Cities and Knights along with the original settlers game to play this. But this is not true, you also need the original settlers 5-6 player extension to play. The extra hexagonal tiles and the 2 new color player tokens don't come with this(only the new tokens for cities and knights for the new player colors come with this). It comes with more progress cards etc. To play this, you need Settlers + Settlers 5-6 player + Cities and Knights. Like usual, it is fun to play! It seems a little expensive for a few tokens and cards though.

Durability - I gave it a 3/5 because the cards wear after about 20 plays.

Fun/Overall - 4/5
I took a star off because it feels a little needless that I'm paying so much for this expansion. I had to buy the base game, then the base Cities and Knights expansion, then the 5-6 player base game expansion, and finally the 5-6 player Cities and Knights expansion. I definitely feel like I got milked here. Way too many purchases needed to end up playing ONE game with 5 other people. That being said, the game is incredible. It's the perfect blend of Monopoly and RISK! It's by far my favorite board game of all time.

EDIT: Jan 20, 2013
More than a year later, we're still playing this game regularly. At this point we don't even play the base game [because it's basically a roll-off]; the Cities and Knights expansion adds significant depth to the gameplay. Luck of the rolls still plays a major role, but strategic gameplay is rewarded well in this version.
Upgraded "durability" stars to 4 - after a full year of regular use, the cards are holding up fairly well.

I loved Catan, and think the Cities and Knights expansion is a lot of fun too. However, it's pretty rare to find 5-6 people who all are experienced enough at Catan to want to play the expansion version, and the time requirement (often more than two hours) can be an issue too. More often we play with a small group of fans and don't need the expansion, or just play the regular Catan with that expansion. But if you've got a group of hard-core Catan fans that are willing to play for hours, this could be great fun.

NOTE: You have to have the Catan: Cities and Knights EXPANSION before purchasing this EXTENSION (EXPANSIONS - basically a "starter-pack" game set that adds more rules and stuff to do onto the original game. EXTENSIONS - expansion-specific game sets that allow you to play with 2 extra players on that particular expansion. Any expansion pack that you buy (you obviously need to have the original game first as everything else is an add-on to the original and not a stand-alone) only allows you to play with the expanded rules for the standard 4-players. If you wish to play with more players, then you must buy the corresponding EXTENSION packs. For example, if you only have the standard game and you would like to be able to play the Cities and Knights EXPANSION with 6 players, you would need to buy the standard Catan EXTENSION, the Cities and Knights starter pack, and the Cities and Knights EXTENSION (this product).

Below are the links to all of the sets that you need to play 6-player Catan with the Cities and Knights expansion:
1) The Settlers of Catan (starter-pack):

I liked the base game of Catan but the ending always seemed sudden. Also strategy seemed to stagnate after playing a lot with the same people. Cities and Knights adds more depth to the game and provides players with more ways to win. The game take longer to play. The first game make sure you have 2 hours to play. This expansion added what I felt was missing from the base game.

The expansion itself doesn't include too much. It is expensive for just a few items. I think of it as purchasing intellectual property. You are paying for the idea more than the game pieces. I think the expansion is well worth the money and having the flexibility of being able to add a 5th and 6th player is well worth the investment.

I got the base game for Christmas and decided I wanted to expand. After playing with some friends' copies I really only wanted the one expansion, which is this. It changes the game enough to have the more complicated elements, but still keeps it simple enough to be picked up right away. The other expansions add more complexity than this one does and I also don't like some of their gameplay. This is simple and complex at the same time.

If you want a starter expansion, then this is probably the best one to go with. Especially if you are still new to the game or will have other players who are still relatively new. If you have a 5-6 player expansion for the base, then grab this as well. Don't want to leave friends out in the cold.
