Why do you need to take the additional 9 tiles?


because is still an expansion... the tiles have the simbol expansion and some of these there aren't in the base game

That's fair enough. So to summarize it for BabyGamer there are three options:

  • Buy the complete WoF from RioGrandeGames and get the 19 wheel tiles, pink pig, 4x4 starting tile + 53 "vanilla" expansion tiles with watermark
  • Buy all of the WoF expansion things from BB5: 19 wheel tiles, pink pig, 4x4 starting tile + 9 "vanilla" expansion tiles with watermark
  • Buy only the game mechanics for WoF from BB5: 19 wheel tiles, pink pig and 4x4 starting tile

I think what BabyGamer is first and foremost looking for is alternative 3 as she doesn't seem to be interested in the "vanilla" tiles  :)

Right.... yes.. I see....  ??? I think..?  :o

So just to be clear, the "vanilla" tiles are, the ones I already have from my base game?  ^-^

I'd say the definition of "Vanilla Tile" is any tile which depicts, and only depicts, features present in the Base Game. Thus, there are no non-Base Game features (i.e., Magic Portals, Gold Mines, Inns, etc.) on the tiles. There are around 170 total "Vanilla Tiles" available right now from various expansions, including Wheel of Fortune's base game version.

As Whaleyland said, vanilla tiles are tiles with the basic structures of grass, road, city and cloister. But they might have other combinations than the ones from the base game. So the 9 WoF vanilla tiles you can get from BB5 might have (but not guaranteed) other combinations of structures on the tiles than in the base game. So I recommend you check that up if you're interested in it.

As for WoF stand-alone game, they switched some of the tiles from the original base game and replaced them with vanilla tiles from Inns & Cathedrals and Traders & Builders. This in order to get a better mix of tiles than in the normal base game. Hope this didn't confuse you further  ??? :)

Hey BabyGamer,

I'm glad, that you are well again! Of course, I didn't sell the WoF in the mean time. I also will send you the document, in order that you can compare the base game, and the two WoF versions tile per tile.

@ kettlefish: Don't worry, I used the small pictures from the complete tile list. Else this would be a document with 200 MB. ;)
