Board Games Pack up for Grabs this Week


  1. First Edition D&D time limit quests.

    Well it can’t get any more obscure than Curling or the Modern Pentathlon, can it?

  2. For me it would have to be “Dungeons & Dragons” all the way. Can just imagine “athletes” from various countries all arguing about how to attack the goblin all oblivious to the fact that 10 minutes has now passed and they still haven’t done anything!

    LARPG (Live-Action Role Playing Game) with preferably a Steam Punk feel, but you could have a different genre for each Games. Contestants would be judged on their performance, their outfit and their problem solving skills for the scenario they are to play

  4. Dungeons and Dragons: Inn Fighting

    If we’re all honest with ourselves we know at every Olympics there’s going to be brawls between drunken patriots from warring nations – so why not make it a far safer spectator sport that everyone can enjoy!

    Just imagine – a burly Greek Barbarian VS a warbling Turkish Bard and instead of a real life glassing and a trip to the emergency room you have some dice rolls, lay down some cards and a get chair smash from behind. Talk about adding a +5 to everybody’s Fun-O-Meter!

  5. It’s got to be Paranoia! Of all the RPGs this would be the best spectator sport – as a ‘Loyal’ citizen of Alpha Complex you’ve been tasked with TroubleShooting (aka Finding Trouble and Shooting it) for ‘The Computer’. With each player having their 6-pack of clones you are guaranteed to get people having fun and not worrying about the consequences – providing the hysteria and good old fashioned back stabbing that today’s Modern Olympics is sorely lacking. The best bit is that as people are actually penalised for showing the know the rules, anyone could potentially be a Gold Medallist!

  6. James Bond 007! They could run a James Bondathon with shooting, skiing, scuba diving, falling out of planes without parachutes!

    SimCity. The contest would involve players constructing their own cities to certain specifications and budgets. Appropriate regulations would have to be followed regarding fire, security and medical. Resulting cities would form the Olympic Village.

  8. I would like to see Warhammer as a new Summer Olympic event. The third last player alive wins Bronze, second last wins Silver and last wins Gold. Pity that only first place will be celebrating; they will (literally) be THE life of the after party!

  9. I think quidditch from Harry Potter world would make a good role play game. The game will be played with a rugby ball for scoring points, laser emitted from the pitch as badgers where points are deducted and no snitch.

  10. Dungeons and Dragons. The head of the Olympic organising committee would be the Dungeon Master. The athletes would have to fight their way across a savage wilderness and rescue damsels in distress locked within a jail cell deep within a jail’s dungeon.
