Recommended Expansion (/mechanic) Combinations
« on: June 05, 2015, 08:28:44 AM »
This may have been discussed elsewhere before, but I just wondered if anyone can think of any expansions that complement each other particularly well.

For example, the robber baron works well with road extension mechanics (bridges, tunnels, ferries etc). And the fliers can be used for trying to repopulate areas following the dragon/tower/plague etc.

I think you've pretty much got them all.  The only other thing I can think of would be the Festival along with the Tower.  That way you might be able to pull your own guy before it can be removed by a tower piece.  Not ideal, but it would save you the three points. 

Somewhat related, I  have no problem using figures like the pig, builder, Mayor, etc. without their corresponding expansion since they are not really necessary.  I also don't see an issue with using tiles with unique mechanics like the magic portals, or just the Wheel tiles like Whaleyland does with his Campaigns.  It can really tailor your experience to what you want without all of the added game time.  I can see where some might think the lack of "vanilla" tiles to be imbalanced though.
Flee the fleas.
