The new official Land Surveyors print&play mini got me wondering if there are any fan expansions where printing/constructing the components just as easy. For those of us without easy access to blank tiles, color printers, and sticker-sheets, Land Surveyors is nice because it requires printing only little cards that are basically just instructions. Looking through the fan workshop here, it seems that most expansions include and require new tiles. I wish I had a good way to play them! But maybe some others are more accessible? I did find the idea to play Bazaar tiles with rules from The Fortune Teller, which seems like an excellent way to re-use existing components and I'm excited to try it. Does anyone know a list, or could you recommend, fan expansions that are easy to "construct" with only re-using existing tiles?
Thanks in advance!

Hi there!

You can check the following page in WICA, Murphy013 is working on (temporary location):

http://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/User:Murphy013/Expansion_List

It has a dynamic selector that allows you to choose some conditions to narrow that the huge list of official and fan expansions:

In your case, you can do the following selection to get a list of expansions with no tiles:
* Editions: check the box to select all
* Publishers: leave it unchecked
* Expansion type: click on "+" to open the second level and select "New figures/tokens and rules"
* Authors: check the box to select all
* Features: leave it unchecked

You will get 40 of them as of today. I especially like those by LittleMisfit (Kevin Graham) but you will find a whole range of options by people from CarcC and other forums. You may even find one by me for the Advent Calendar 2019.  :o

Each row in the list includes a summary of components and links to the rules and PnP components as needed.

Have fun exploring.  ;)

Yes! We think so!

All the work that Murphy013 was doing some months ago about scouting for expansions and completing those almost done was related to this little contraption we put together... He has spent a great deal of hours doing this compilation.

...And you are probably one of the first people to put it to good use..  ;D

Yes this can be. We will see, but grape season is going, so free time is spant in vineyard and with play of Carcassonne. Big fight with my wife, 804 vs 763 points (all expansions at home). And of caourse I loose, because I had no permission to use farmers ;-)
