Hi all

I was looking through Carcassonne and I thought that's a lot of expansion.

Anyone know any other games with lots of expansions? An expansion is define as
1. Addition to the base game or not a standalone eg. Carcassonne Hunters and Gatherers don't count as an expansion to the original Carcassonne game
2. Must be sold separately at some point in time
3. Expand the game play of the original game (ok abit subjective)
4. Not mutually exclusive viz. all the expansion can be played together
5. Not a scenario - eg. I would consider SpaceHulk Campaigns as a scenario
6. Trading cards don't count

Lets start with games with 4 or more expansion viz. base game + 4 expansions

Regards
Chuk

Oh, Runebound definitely belongs here. There are what, 12 card expansion decks for items and encounters, 6 adventure replacements, 3 large box board replacements, and 6 character supplements?

Though I suppose any CCG or even LCG wins, they have expansions numbering in the hundreds.

Catan seems to have a lot of additions, not sure if they are additive or not though.

Runebound was the first game I thought of. Memoir '44 seems to be catching up with all of it's tiny map expansions, but I don't think it's quite there with Runebound quite yet.

I guess that RPGs don't count either, right? For if not ...

I guess that Zoon would work, Not a trading card game, but lots of decks for different factions. Don't know how many decks there are, but there's a lot there.

How about Advanced Squad Leader. Dozen core expansions, half dozen historical modules, and that's not looking at 3rd party expansions!

Cosmic Encounter - Eon version had at least 8 or 9 expansions....

Still doesn't match Advanced Squad Leader or Star Fleet Battles....

Defitely Catan. An addition to it, Die Siedler von Catan: Das Buch zum Spielen adds a lot of mini expansions to Catan, in addition to the other ones available.,

Magic the gathering, but they do not call all the extra sets expansions, though that is exactly what they are.

43 individual small figure expansions with 4 more coming in March
3 large figure expansions

Master set 2, master set 3 coming in January, and the Marvel set could be considered stand alone games, but they also expand the base game.

On top of all that, two or more of the same expansion can be used to good effect.

Are we counting single-card Essen handouts as "expansions"? I don't think that was what he meant… Ghost Stories has 2 expansions: Guardhouse and White Moon. Then there is an Essen pre-order bonus and 2 single-card handouts.

I'm surprised no one mentioned Zombies!!! It has 8 expansions: Z2, Z3, Z3.5, Z4, Z5, Z6, Z7 and Z8 (Z6.66 is just blank cards, not really an expansion)

From the top of my head, i'd say Advanced Squad Leader, World in Flames and Runebound (Second Edition) have to be up there. Runebound cheats a little though with all those tiny expansions.
