Hi there,

I'm searching for games that do this.
You've got cards ord tiles - possibly with sections on them - that you lay down onto each other so that they overlap and create a changing board or map.

One game that does that is Vasty Wilds, a lovely game where you create an expanding forest. (Didn't make its first kickstarter, though.)



You can find its card art here: http://www.vastywilds.com/rules.htm
More about the card-laying mechanism can be found in the rules: http://www.vastywilds.com/images/VastyWildsRules.pdf

Do you know other games that do something similar?

Thanks in advance!

Marrakech Maybe not entirely what you are looking for, there is actually a board but you are laying pieces of cloth next to and on top of each other to play the game.

Hacker: Deluxe Edition You play cards that represent different companies/entities on the network that you then have to try and break into.

Plunder A pirate/sailing based game. It's been awhile since I've played it but IIRC the cards are pretty much everything in the game. You can play them as a location or a resource or sometimes for a special bonus/ability.

FlowerFall? I don't think it counts as there aren't any pieces which are placed on the board.

Node - Super light/quick area control, sorta like dominoes with color instead of numbers.

Shameless self promotion: Autumn

It's a free print and play game with only 18 cards. You can find the rules and the cards under the files section.
