Board games

Create a puzzle about a real world board game. Any board game will do, but I suspect a classic game might do better.

What's a board game?

Almost anything, besides card games, on the sister stack Board & Card Games.

Some ideas:

  • Monopoly themed
  • SlitherLinks and other puzzles in the shape of a board game like Ludo or Solitaire.
  • "How did we get into this state?" Type puzzles that show a game part way through in an unusual state.

Does it have to be just boardgame related?

No! The cluedo board game has a film, feel free to involve that! Puzzles about monopoly could also reference the economics term!

The Chess Piece in the room

There's already a bunch of puzzles, do we want more? Sure, why not? But they might need to do more to standout against the puzzles already on the site.
