This is a list devoted to free expansions from publishers that contains some sort of physical item (such as The Vatican expansion for Kardinal & König -- which is a single sheet of printed paper). Free games or variants which require you to supply your own material -- such as printing out new rules, should not be included in this list.

Please feel free to contribute! I'm only going to post the one expansion I own and have actually used.

This expansion offers additional scoring oppurtunities for advisors. On the whole, it seems to neither significantly enhance nor detract from the game. Considering how tight the scoring mechanism is in the basic game, this is only brought out to satisfy someone's curiousity.

Three more scenarios, called "Jackson Campaign" (already printed and with graphical layout similar to game manual), were distributed by AH in various conventions.

Avalon Hill gave out an extra (brand new) power called Powerhouse when the game first came out.

As I recall they used to give away a free set of white pieces for people who wanted to play with six players.

For a while, there was a free "Silver Robot" you could get from Rio Grande, along with rules about its use.

Free drink for the game Kontor. Just kidding. This free expansion adds an extra scoring option for the basic game. Deemed pointless by some gamers though.

This one is free - for those owning a Feurio! copy.
Vulkan! uses the Feurio! material - the rules are downloadable for free at the publisher's (that's me) web site.
