I know some of you guys are into board games. My son got Catan for Christmas, and he got the Seafarers expansion for Easter. We just finished playing the first time on the bigger board, and except for the Ol' Ball-and-Chain bitching that she doesn't ever win, it's been enjoyed all around.

The boy is asking for more expansions, though, and the only one I've ever played is the one he just got. Any recommendations?

Cities and Knights is for sure the one you want next. It adds new commodities to trade, but more importantly, you can develop cities and then defend them with knights against barbarian and other invaders. Adds a nice new layer to the game.

Most of the others you can take a pass on, unless he/you want new scenarios to play.

The latest major expansion is Explorers & Pirates, which sounds great but I haven't played it, so I can't vouch for it.
