Hi,

Ever since I saw Flashhawk's Rubik's Cube redesigned with a Carcassonne theme, I was a fan. Not only I wanted to make his 'Carcacube', but I was also wondering which other games would look good with a Rubik's Cube make-over...

So I bought a few cheap/fake cubes in a local thrift store and started looking for suitable games.

Not that easy, so hereby I would like some suggestions! Feel free to propose games you would like to be 'Rubik's Cube'-ified

This is a very good Print & Play game (so it's easy to get all the tiles!). I love playing the solo variant or a 2 player game... But it also makes a good Rubik's Cube design! It also has a lot of re-designs, so you can choose your own theme! I liked this green-and-orange the (by carthagian) most.



This one I made a while ago, The layout can be found in the micropul files' database... here:

Mmmh, this one looks promising... It has beautiful tiles, and a couple of difficulties: both the islands and the trading routes should match.

If there was only a way to get (a picture/scan of) the tiles
Let's see if i can work this one out!
