The two boards included with this pack are a great addition to the game, however they leave a little to be desired. In a 4-player game, you would hope that an expansion set of player boards would accommodate a new play style for each of the players, like many expansions do. These double sided playing boards allow two players to play new asymmetric styles and, if they so choose, one of those styles in a symmetrical game. Strategic options are, at least, in plenty with these boards, but there still is, as mentioned, a little bit lacking in terms of variety.
I give this one a 4 star rating simply because it adds exactly what the game needs without adding bloat to the gameplay - but can't give a five due to the limited nature of only being given 2 boards in the pack (and at a general price point that suggests a little more).
A nice collection of cat token miniatures for Nemesis. Not needed at all unless you are a collector or you like cats but Board Game Bliss had it at a cheap price allowing me to complete my collection.
Overall this game captures the feel of the Tile laying Isle of Cats. In the vein of roll and Write game Welcome To... Each player picks from the same set of cards to determine cat shapes, treasures, and lessons. The challenge is more so against yourself which I personally prefer to the original Cats. Overall, if you are a fan of Isle of Cats, and Roll and Write games, then you are bound to like Explore and Draw. If you haven't played original cats, but like Roll and Writes, then you will probably enjoy this game as well.
Overall a great game to add to almost any collection.

These things are great for keeping game boxes shut when you take them out of the house.
