If you have an unused Rubick's Cube you have now a Carcassonne-like game in your hands!

Oh, well. I have no rights about Carcassone, tiles, logo, trademark, etc etc. But it is the best modern board game. I love it.
Oh, well, well, I have no rights about Rubick's cube neither.

And I was inspired by this 'ible (http://www.instructables.com/id/Rubyrint-rubik-cube-labyrinth/). Thanks to derte84.

The cube is easy to make. I hope you enjoy it.

Step 1: What We Want:

You will need a  Rubick's cube laying arround with nothing to do.
You will to download the template or make your own arrangement (but that is hard).

You can download it here as a PDF http://www.instructables.com/file/FM3UREKGY18R8XM/
and here a a PNG http://www.instructables.com/file/FHKEL33GY18R8XN/

You will need also paper, scissor, stone.. sorry, I mean glue stick and a hobby knife. 

A printer, of course, and a PC with a browser and web access and hands and eyes and TIME and... oh, well... you know...

Step 2: The Template.

Picture of The Template.
I selected only one of each of the tiles of the 4 expansions (my PC program has little bmp images). They were a lot, so I deleted the river's ones and the merchants's flagged city tiles, witch left 54. The exact number.

But then I realized that the city and road tiles has an odd number of sides, so the arrangement would not be closed (related to graph theory and the konigsberg's bridges problem and so on (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_Bridges_of_K%C3%B6nigsberg) and I need to remove one tile and duplicate other to close the entire arrangement). But I think it is still a good selection.

You can download it here as a PDF http://www.instructables.com/file/FM3UREKGY18R8XM/
and here a a PNG http://www.instructables.com/file/FHKEL33GY18R8XN/

The size of the side of the squares is 20mm, you can scale down it to the needed size when printing.

If someone makes a new-and-better arrangement I will make it as another template.

What a wonderful idea, the cube once completely different. Must be really difficult to solve though.

As a fellow Carcassone nerd, I laud and applaud this project. Excellent work. I really appreciate the amount of effort put into the arrangement. This looks great for a game of solitaire Carc.

Hard but funny.

I would do another carcassonne arrangement game, using six sided dices as six-faced tiles, where you take one randomly and rotate the dice to choose the face to play, but the tile selection is very hard to do because each face used means the other 5 can't be used this same game, and it is a lot of cut'n'stick and I'm working in a creepy-box for a carnival kids party.

The idea must be matured, and determine if work in a 2D puzzle-like form, or in a 3D arrangement of 162 tiles with magnets under the faces, something like  http://www.instructables.com/id/Magnetic-Rubik-s-Dice-Cube/ but with more freedom.
What an awesome idea! That would be much more fun for me than a normal rubick's cube.
