Having said all of that, regardless of the edition this is one of our favorite games to play with kids in the evening after dinner. We have had ours since 2006 (I know that because I went on to Amazon to find it again from my account). My youngest daughter and I over the years have played this countless times. But almost all my kids and i have played it over the years. Every game is different.
Though it can be played with more than two people, it is frankly far better to play with just two. the strategies get a lot more complex with alternating turns. And though simple, the possibility for complex strategies is never ending.
The expansions are worth investigating. especially the cathedrals expansion. in fact we simply combined those two and never play just the original alone anymore. My youngest has now gone off to college but when she comes home she still asks to play this game and it remains one of my favorite evenings with her to enjoy.
This is cheap, it is easy to learn, it can be as simple or complex as you make it. Ours will be a family heirloom I suspect. treasured by the kids for years to come.
This game doesn't include an actual board, it is played by laying tiles out on a table (or any flat surface). Because of that, we've tossed the tiles in a quart ziploc bag (with the player pieces in a smaller bag inside that) so we can bring the game along when traveling. We also have several expansion packs. I highly recommend the river expansion pack as it ensures the tiles are fairly spread out at the beginning of the game. While we have additional expansion packs beyond that one, we tend not to play with them as frequently.
We play this game multiple times a week, all summer long, or on school vacations. The kids love it, it is fun for the adults, and it is a little bit of a different game every time you play. Our family prefers to play with the Inns and Cathedral expansion set, to make the game take a little longer and because my kids love all the added pieces.
One thing to keep an eye on is the price. Depending on where you buy it you can pay anywhere from $30 to $70, for the exact same game.
The only real drawback we have found so far is that you really need to play it on a good sized table or you run out of space. And because it has so many pieces it isn't a great game to take on vacation. Too easy to loose bits (at least if you are playing with kids).
In general, though, it is a fun game with a simple premise and plenty of strategy. It is a lot of fun, and my family loves it.
