This extension allows you to add a further 2 players to the game as well as adding some new rules to the game which provides a new dimension. The obvious one being a bigger board. If you've played the game then you'll know that it can take a while to get around to your turn. Well imagine what kind of lag 2 further players can add?! Don't fret, you have the option to do a 'special build' or buy development cards at the end of each person's turn (assuming you already own the resource cards). This is great if you know someone is likely to win when it's their turn next and you steal the win by buying a victory point to get you to the magic 10 points!
Perhaps someone who knows me will buy me the extension for my birthday or Christmas?!
Price and quality of the parts deny this the 5th star.
The balance of resources changes slightly too, as this adds 2 of each tile plus one more desert, meaning that brick and ore become slightly less rare vs the others.
Overall a great extension to a great game.
One thing I noted is that the boarder pieces included in this set are the new style and connect like puzzle pieces. This is great for keeping the board in place but if you have the old style original game they won’t link up with your old boarder pieces but it doesn’t affect gameplay. The main game tiles work perfect with all versions.
Pros: Huge game board is great for many players or longer games
Extra pieces nice for customization or replacement
Excellent quality construction
Cons: Interlocking boarder pieces will not lock with old style/version of Settlers
It's also worth noting that if you have very young players in your game (kids, nephews, nieces, etc). Using the 5-6 player expansion with only 4 players can make the game a bit less competitive, and also speed it up because of the greater number of 6 and 8 marked tiles, so that resources tend to be a bit more abundant.

Handy expansion pack when playing with larger groups.
