This is an all-but-essential expansion for a great game. You certainly don't _have_ to get it to enjoy Scythe, but if you do it gives you more variety and the ability to play 6 or 7. The new faction abilities and the tweak to the base rules are both improvements.
The two factions included keep the game variance high while maintaining great balance. Though it is possible to play with 7 I would advise not introducing players to Scythe in a 7 person game.
The two classes are different from the first five. The Asian faction is my least favorite of them all. You really need to think differently when you play with it because they are slooooow.
(+) Adds the ability to play with 6-7, components are really nice, the abilities of the new factions are unique, good job of re-balancing the other factions to compensate for the increased player count (-) Increases the length of the game and downtime, the board can start to feel over-crowded (+/-) Increases the player count to accommodate everyone, but not as clean as the base game IMO.
