New Boardgames in 2012

Britain’s most popular murder-mystery-themed logic-based number-placement puzzle. Was it Colonel Mustard with the lead piping? Can the six go next to the four in the corner?

Players travel round the board paying imaginary rents with imaginary money, winning second place in imaginary beauty contests, and occasionally landing in imaginary jail. This repeats for several hours until the youngest player faces imaginary bankruptcy, and liquidates their imaginary assets.

Horseback Chess
Chess, but played on the back of a wild stallion. Galloping optional.

Much like ‘Scrabble’, but with all the vowels removed.

Oedipus: The boardgame
Fun for all the family. Except dad.
