There you have, guys. I want to make a compilation of notorious adaptations of board games to the smaller card game format.

Those games normally are intended to translate and provide the experience of their fathers, but in a shorter timeframe and using a smaller space.

Feel free to discuss if they achieved their goal and to add more to this list.

NOTE: this list isn't about games per semake sure that games added are card versions of available board games.

NOTE: this list is sorted by title.

"Amun-Re: The Card Game is a card-based version of Amun-Re, and the auction at the heart of that game is still present in this design, with the results of those auctions driving the rest of the action."

In all my posts to this GeekList, any quotes are from the description on the card game's BGG page.

For what I've read, everybody agrees this game is more complex that its father.

Also a lot of people says it's too long for what it is...

"Coal Baron: The Great Card Game is a standalone game based on the very popular board game, Coal Baron, originally published in 2013. With innovative mechanisms and almost 240 cards, Coal Baron: The Great Card Game creates an experience that feels very distinct from, yet is just as intense as, the original game."

Or so claims the publisher.

I really want to play this game. I'd like to see how much of the board game they managed to translate into the card game. I can see that they again went with two kinds of area influence/area control (this time food chain value and element dominance).

Description on the database:

A fertile land between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. Led by powerful leaders, kingdoms and dynasties developed here around 3000 BC. Attacks and coups by neighboring kingdoms are the order of the day. But he who plans well will become the stuff of legend. Haven't we heard this before? Absolutely, but not in this form. Because now, the 'card game conversion' trend among board games has reached Reiner Knizia's classic game Euphrat & Tigris (Tigris and Euphrates). As a card game, it will offer simpler and faster play, but will still be nicely outfitted with about 200 cards and 16 printed wooden discs.
