Not sure, but if I am right this may be really obvious...
A Village but not a Mining Village?

I'm not certain... but... if I'm right, Nick's doesn't work, but could we have:

A Village but not a Shanty Town?

...spin-offs are still better for all of the previously cited reasons.
But not strictly better, because the spinoff can have a different cost than the expansion.

I thought it was obvious by now.

Well, apparent, but not obvious.

Hints:
It's a word puzzle, not a card effect or similar puzzle
Look for something every first card/word has. Then check that none of the second cards have them

And the solution if you're still stumped:
Double letters
