Self-organized critical models are used to describe the 1/f-spectra of rather different physical situations like snow avalanches, noise of electric currents, luminosities of stars or topologies of landscapes. The prototype of the SOC-models is the sandpile model of Bak, Tang and Wiesenfeld (Phys. Rev. Lett. 59, 381 (1987)). We implement this model on non-periodic graphs where it can become either isotropic or anisotropic and compare its properties with the periodic counterpart on the square lattice.
