At the end of last year, we put out the Boardgame Remix Kit, an app, ebook, paper book and set of cards. It’s full of 26 new games you can play using games you probably own already (Trivial Pursuit, Cluedo, Scrabble and Monopoly); it’s completely unofficial, very pretty, and an awful lot of fun.
And as 14 February approaches, we’ve been thinking: wouldn’t it be great to have some Valentine remixes? A game of romantic love, say; a game of lust; a game of bitter breakups, romance in all its forms. So we’ve made four entirely new remixes, and we’re releasing the rules for free. Download them all as a lovely pdf from the Boardgame Remix Kit site, or just read them online…
- ROFDLT is a two-player game of sexy acroynms, using Scrabble tiles and your own lewd ingenuity.
- Divorce! is a Monopoly remix for two grumpy players. Struggle through your marriage and its inevitable decay, trying to grab hold of as much joint property as you can.
- WLTM Humpty Dumpty creates personal ads from Trivial Pursuit answers: I’m a decepticon who’s into Charles Dickens, and my friends tell me I look like the Caspian Sea.
- And I Brought You This Piping To Show You My Love sends you roaming the Cluedo mansion, desperately trying to win over your beloved with the perfect romantic gift: would they like the rope, or is the candlestick more to their taste?
