My first geeklist. The title says it all really.

This is a Geeklist of games that could use an expansion or sequel. Most of these are licensed games, but they don't have to be. There's something about the theme or mechanics that just begs to be continued and/or enhanced.

Basically, I just don't want this to be a list of "I love this game, so there should be another one just like it," so I'll try to keep away from that.

Star Wars is my favorite license if you look at my game collection.

Think of it - space comabat expansion with Tie Fighters and X-Wings, or a General Grievous and other assorted characters at the very least with new boards.

Buffy is one of my all time favorite licensed games. It just oozes with theme.

Seasons 1 - 4 are covered in this game, the expansion should cover season 5 - 7. An Angel Sequel would rock as well.

Again - Star Wars.

Imagine a Big Box game for each of the movies. Destroy the Death Star, Battle on Hoth, Endor Shield Generator/Destroy Death Star 2, Droids VS Clones and fianlly Clones VS Jedi.

I think theme makes me like Starship more than Settler's Card Game.

Since the Settler's Card Game has an expansion, why is this game left without?

I really like the mechanism of the card I play for offense becomes my defense.

Maybe an Eowyn VS The Witch King game?

I like that San Juan is Puerto Rico but faster.

New Buildings and New Roles? There may be an expansion planned for this already. I know there's a supposed Puerto Rico expansion in the works, so a San Juan one seems to be a good fit.

Love the theme.

Since Power Grid got a new expansion board, why not this one? I think a less symmetrical board could be a lot of fun.

Hasbro never supported this game in any way. I guess they realized they couldn't sell it at Toys R Us or turn it into a "collectable" game. Thank goodness both Memoir '44 and Command & Colors went to companies that saw the system's potential.

I'd love to see DOW get a chance to do with this what it's done with Memoir but sadly that'll likely never happen.

Attika just begs for new buildings, maybe even a new resource type

How about plastic buildings instead of chits ?

Now here's a game that cried out for expansions. I guess they'd have to rerelease the game itself. With new boards to add in randomly. The opportunity to add in some catchup boards would be welcomed I think.

A few new teams would really be nice for this game. Maybe a deck of cards allowing special actions. This is a game that has a lot of potential for expansions and with extra teams an expansion could also be a stand alone game.

I know there's quite a bit of fuss over Railroad Tycoon (RRT) versus Age of Steam (AoS) and all that, and it isn't my intention to bring all that up again.

Every week I put out a E-mail to my gaming group to set the night we're going to play on, and ask what games I should bring, and RRT shows up on more responses than any other game. I don't disagree, but I'd enjoy if RRT had the map selection of PowerGrid.

I feel like this game is just crying out for another map, new tycoon cards, and new railroad operations cards. An England map, European map, or a Western US map all have potential. Doing a smaller England map designed for 3-4 players would probably be my top choice out of the many options.

Fairy Tale seems like it'd be a prime candidate for expansion, the problem being that the deck is pretty big already. They'd either have to swap out some of the cards that are already in there, or make a whole new version. Either way, I think there are a lot of mechanics that could be explored the way the game's set up.

I would buy an expansion for this in a heartbeat.

People have done their own expansions, but it isn't the same without the plastic...


Man, I love this game.
