Absurd Expansion Ideas....

This was just a random brainstorm I had thinking absurd thoughts and talking with a friend the other night while playing Wingspan...

So, the next Wingspansion should be a little more...bleak...given the current environment.  The expansion would be called "Poachers" and there would be Hunter cards shuffled into the bird deck.  Hunters would have colored powers just like birds triggered when you take actions.  "Draw Card" hunters would let you take eggs from an opponent and do something with them (at least one type of hunter would be able to poach eggs).  The lay eggs hunters would set a trap on an unbirded space on their world. The draw cards hunters could shoot birds on the opponents board.  

What absurd expansion can you come up with for a game?

Viticulture - The Pest/Plague Expansion.  Release birds, bugs, and bacteria onto your neighbors vineyard to wipe out one of their fields.

#Vinhos kind of does this with the different weather tiles that come out! But Viticulture could use some variability!

Above and Below - The Down & Out Expansion

As you build your new village, the barbarians who ransacked your last village have come back, systematically dismantling what you've built. This expansion keeps the competitive nature of the base game, but adds a cooperative aspect where everyone has to band together to fight off the barbarian horde that tries to destroy your new home.

Okay, so this maybe isn't as absurd as I thought once I wrote it down, but it still probably won't happen.

Fireball Island - Volcanic Expansion.
Call it a single-game legacy expansion . . . a mechanism creates lava to spew out the top of the mountain, running over the entire game as you play, melting it.

You get to play it only once.

EXACTLY. Changes not only the game, but also your house.

Root: United. All factions must band together to fight against a common threat to the Woodland--Falcon, the Abandoned and her legion of mice.

Agricola: The Tax and Tithe expansion. Every turn the government and the church of the 1600s takes a bite out of your farm. 

I also had thought of Everdell: deforestation. But sounds like @Skurvy5 got that one. So, I'll say Everdell: Wildfire.

Wildfire! I love that for Everdell. I think poison berries or rotten wood cards would be nice as well. Or if you leave a Jehovah's Witness Bible at the inn it's -1 point at the end of the game.

I love those ideas

At first I thought your expansion for Agricola was real - you really captured their naming conventions

Thanks

Terraforming Mars: Surviving Mercury - try to build a habitable colony on the worst planet in the solar system!

Everdell: Deforestation - watch in horror as your beautiful village is wiped away by greedy corporations!

Paladins of the West Kingdom: The Black Plague - See if your engine can survive the deadly terror that is the Bubonic Plague!

Dinosaur Island Expansion: An option to breed carnivores and release them into an opponents park to eat visitors.

I think this game definitely needs something like that actually lol. There needs to be more drama!

This sounds cool and fun!

I like this.  Even though I've not played it, sounds like a fun "Take That" mechanism.  I like my games with a little mean.

Wow that is a brutal idea! 

I am thinking something like building a neighborhood on the moon for Welcome To...

Ahah that would be fun.
