As with the original game, this expansion lacks organization inside the box. Which means that, unless you buy some small boxes yourself to divide everything, all pieces and cards are gonna be lying around mixed up inside the box, which can make setting up the game a bit tedious. The transportation problem where flying units would get broken was fixed by dividing the pedestal and units in different packages, but the main difference was that, instead of having to glue some of the units, I had to glue them all. Still, better that than having some of the pedestals' shafts broken.
As for the gameplay, this expansion neatly improves the original game. A must have if you buy the original.

This is, without a doubt, the most innovative expansion I have ever purchased for a game. If you loved the core Starcraft game, this expansion is a MUST-HAVE! It adds heros and allows you to play with different strategies without having to be stuck with a single, special victory objective. It also adds 2-3 new units per team, new planets, and of course the awesome new leadership cards. They didn't hold back on anything! If you only have played the computer game, you should definitely check out buying the complete board game. It functions so similarly to the computer game, you won't ever realize that you are actually playing a board game...granted it may take inexperienced players 5 hours to complete a game, but it's worth ever minute and penny! BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!

StarCraft: Brood war expansion takes what was a great strategy game with StarCraft the board game and improves in every way and I mean in every way, the game has new order tokens, new units, new technology cards, new heroes, new planets ( game board).

The first thing you do once taking all the pieces out, is remove some cards from the original deck of cards and technology cards and add the slightly modified cards in, some things were changed for the expansion and changed for balance. Each faction's leadership cards replace the ones from the original and again it improves the layout and makes the needed changes for Brood War.

Once everything is done and setup the game plays similar from the first so if you have a group of friends that have played the original then there is only a couple of gameplay changing rules to go over, like the new defense token that can be played instantly instead of waiting for the order stack to be completed. This game is very polished and is a must buy if you own the first game. I repeat this is a must buy, it improves and offers different game modes like attack the Overmind and others.

I already love the StarCraft Board Game and this expansion really improves it in every way. From increased balance to scenario (pve) type play. I don't recommend StarCraft the board game to the casual player as games can get very complicated and take a long time, but if you are a strategy game enthusiast, or an avid StarCraft fan, this game is for you and the expansion will make you relish the experience that much more.

Awesome addition to this game with tons of awesome changes. Since it's now out of print, if you have Starcraft I highly suggest picking this up while you can.
