O.K. This is a list of games where buying the main game again is usefull for extending the playability of the game, however the game in question is NOT of the collectable variety, (I.E. Not a CCG, CMG or the like) you are getting the EXACT same materials in the box, and despite this, buying a second, or even third or more main box is appealing. They don't have to be official but please explain how you would use two or more. please feel free to add to this list

Heroscape is a natural for this list, as the mor master set you have the larger the terrain you can make and the more units you will have to fight on it, and having a couple dragons never hurt anyone

A second copy of A&A (Preferabbly from the same edition) can be quite useful for running double blind scenarios, as was done at Gamicon last year.

While there were many other supplements, A second HQ box was great for simulating multiple dungeon levels.

Buy another copy of the magazine with which the game originally came just for a second set of counters, photocopy the copy of the map printed therein and you have a neat system for plotting each players moves. You can now discard the klunky suggested system of paper and pencil plotting...

With three board you can play with up to 15 persons.
Did it with two boards and 7 players - was great fun (also because I won with a great distance to the other players).

A second copy allows a 'board' of 61 rings, which makes it more difficult for experienced players. This way there is no more automatic win.

Probably a bit borderline as it falls into the same motivation as a CCG. Get a Second set to be able to figth Vulca vs Vulca or Hoax vs Hoax (or to do two player deck building).

More is always better with PitchCar/Carabande. Even though there is a separate expansion, I find the standard curves and straightaways more interesting (and navigable) than the jump and strange chokehold curves from the expansion.

A second set would allow you to create some really twisty short courses, or some mammoth long courses, and of course allow more cars on the track.

Put the maps together for a bigger planet, more tanks, more players.
To bad its such a collectors item that I'm happy to own at least one copy. You should be a very lucky or rich collector to get two.

Philip K. Dick fans will appreciate having two sets of this, as the Japanese can simultaneously win and lose WWII, just like in "The Man in the High Castle."

I've heard that some have joined two boards together on the edges to form a globe (I never tried this, as I only have one set). Does anyone know (or want to suggest) what changes to the edge hexes to make, for this to work?

Buy two sets of settlers, repaint the buildings in one set, and you have Settlers for up to 8 players.

I've read that Acquire with two boards is very popular in Europe, with annual tournaments in some areas. A tile can be played to either board. Supposedly, this reduces a lot of luck from the game.

The following is all in Canadian Dollars...

Base Set includes 8 vehicles and 20+ infanty -> $59.95
Add on Set 1 vehicle -> $12.95

Do the math. (And there's no other way[currently] to get more infantry)

We played with two Risk boards, where the only connection was through kamchacta (sp) to Alaska on the other board (for both kamchacta's).

The boards were different editions (one was from the UK, the other Canadian), so it was easy to tell which board your cards belonged to.

Sets could only be considered if using cards from the same world.

We didn't have a "world" bonus like a completed continent bonus, as the player controlling one of the worlds was more than likely to win anyway . . .

Good fun, as far as a game of risk that takes 50% longer to play can go.
