If you would use doubles..
« on: August 02, 2014, 02:51:02 AM »
So, I was wondering, if you would use a original (mini)expansion or the base game twice. which one would you add multiple times and why?

I want to expand my collection, but i don't know where to start:)

I suppose the question is, which expansion do you like so much you want more of them.  :meeple:

In my case, for example, I am buying left and right as long as there are tiles in the expansion / base games.
 One of the partial goals I have is to acquire six copies of the more common expansions.

One fun expansion to have more of is the Dragon. We played a megaCarc game and it was difficult to get any points because the dragon (only one used but 3x the amount of Dragon tiles) flew literally everywhere burning the poor followers left and right.  >:D

Haha yes indeed

personally i like the dragon but it kind of makes the game slower. it are awesoe mechanics though.

For me it would be Traders & Builders as I like the tile configurations and there's a good number of them too (24). Plus I think including this expansion twice could make the battles for trade goods really interesting. Not sure whether allowing players to have two pigs and builders each would be a good idea but it's easy enough to not use the extra wood.

The other I'd consider is Mage & Witch. It's only 8 tiles so it wouldn't make a huge difference to the total tile count but I like the effect that these have and would be interested to see how a game played with twice as many of them.

An expansion I'd never include more than once is The Tower. Not if I wanted to get any points anyway!

What would you consider the best expansion tiles? Specifically the tiles.
