With 9 modules, 9*8*7 = 504 ... but, if he adds one more, 10*9*8 = 720, or a second one for 990

Working title for the expansion:

Five Tribes didn't change.

7 Wonders didn't change.

That one has the benefit of having 2 F names (in English at least)

No. An expansion could add more Tech cards, more terrain tiles, components for more players, etc, without adding more rules modules.

True... but then you'd have 504 games, each with two modes (with expansion or not)... 1008?

If he adds another 9 modules he could call it 504 more
Alternatively another 5 modules could just be called 5*504 or something like that.

I could also see 'mini'-expansions of just a single new module, complete with rules for all three slots and any additional needed components. Something like 504: The Cooperative Module.

With 9 more modules it becomes 4896

(18*17*16)

He could call it Flourishes for 504!

or 504 Fantastic Fates (dungeon crawl module)

504 For Families (Roll and move module)

504 Frenemies (really just turns the game into Diplomacy)

504 Falling Failures (Dexterity Jenga Module)

504 Frantic Fun (adds timed soundtrack like Escape: The Curse of the Temple or Space Alert)

504 Frowning Financials (super expensive expansion that adds upgrades components)

I think there is lots of room to think outside the box.
