Sounds interesting. But shouldn't this go in the Variants forum?
Thanks, I didn't notice there was a Variants Forum.
I think it would be easier to simply play Carcassonne! Carcassonne was published just a year or two after Entdecker, and I've always suspected that it was meant as a dumbed-down version of Entdecker.
The setup of this variant is slightly less setup than a normal game of Entdecker. I personally prefer to play a single game of 7 Wonders than multiple of Sushi Go. I am finding that is the same as with this version of Entdecker and Carcassonne respectively.
