In the Wheel of Fortune set, some road tiles have the wheel symbol, this symbols have a number: 1, 2 or 3.
I want to use this symbol like the goods in Traders&Builders expansion:
the player that closes a road gains a number of wheel-counters.
At the end of the game, the player that have more counters gain ** points.

But, how many points?
10 points?
20?
30?

I use a similar variant rule:

"Every time a road, a city or a cloister that includes one or more tiles with a wheel symbol is completed, the player who added the tile that completed the feature obtains as many victory points as the numbers indicated on the wheel symbols. This is independent from who scored the points for the feature itself."

It's a fun variant that uses those symbols in a strategic way: you can complete a feature, even if this gives victory points to an adversary, because you score points with the wheel symbols. It works in a similar way as the trade goods in Traders & Builders.
Also, since most of the wheel symbols are on tiles with just roads, this variant greatly enhance the importance of that neglected feature
