As the flip side to my previous list, some games positively beg for an expansion. In some cases to fix some basic flaw(s) with an otherwise fun game. Sometimes because the base game experience is a little limited or lacks replay value. Sometimes a game is just to darn much fun to let it end with the base experience.

I know there are a lot more than I can think of right now, so please, add away.

I wanted to love this game so badly, but something is just wrong or missing from it as-is. I've always argued a good expansion could turn this into an amazing game.

But given the numerous production issues and meh sales, I really doubt it will ever happen.

I know it will happen.

But to me this game was only so-so. I do see enormous potential with a few well-designed expansions to round out the experience a bit.

My armor is contempt. My shield is disgust. My sword is hatred. In the Emperor's name, let none survive.

New rooms and new haunts would be great. Combine the new stuff with the fixed haunts from the base game.

Overshadowed by Race for the Galaxy, San Juan has needed expansions since the day it came out. I created one for the Geek, but no new on any official ones.

I would love to see a 5 to 7 player expansion for this game.
Maybe something could be done, similar to what was done with:
The Pillars of the Earth and its expansion: The Pillars of the Earth: Expansion Set.

It would be nice to have more players, more cards, more buildings, and maybe a half-board with more work areas, just like the Pillars of Earth Expansion Set.
