I've played this game so much (too much? Nah.) that I think it would benefit from an expansion.

Some ideas I have are for one or a combination of the following:

-More tile variety.
-Bigger boards.
-Rectangular boards.
-Different build bonus, like 6x8.

Do eet Uwe, paleeze!

I don't really see how a game like this could have an expansion.

There's a lot of balance in the design of this game.
The amount of pieces, the spaces on the track, the differences in button/hourglass values, etc. It's all connected to produce a game that's just right in terms of length, tension, difficulty...

You can't just add/change some stuff, if you did you'd have to modify everything to keep that balance. Basically you'd be designing a whole new game.

Yes of course, the balance in Patchwork is amazing. But if Uwe could do it once, could he not do it again?

Oh sure he could, he's Uwe!

Maybe he will make a whole new game within the 'Patchwork family'. I just don't think there can (or will) be an expansion for the existing one.

As far as hoping for a patchwork family, again I would seriously urge a look at Cottage Garden!

It appears that Uwe might have moved away from working with Lookout since the Mayfair buy out and so a Patchwork expansion might not be top priority but Cottage Garden might scratch the itch!!!

Francesco, you're right, Cottage Garden looks pretty cool, I hope DigiDiced makes an app for it.
