I received this as a birthday gift and I think it's another great addition to the 7 Wonders franchise. It doesn't add too much to make the game too complicated as the two expansions in here (babel & Great Projects) don't intrude on the base game making it more of an optional strategy. I really liked that as I felt Leaders and Cities intruded into the base game a lot (for the better as i loved those expansions) so I was happy this expansion didn't shied away from too much meddling. You can play with these expansions or not, up to you if you want to spice things up. Great option to have. Not a must buy, but it's a great buy.
