Create the next Snakes and Ladders, Monopoly, The Game of Life, Ticket to Ride, or Settlers of Catan with this creative board game book!

Board games are back in vogue, with board game cafés popping up around the world. This interactive gaming book teaches you how, in just half an hour, you and your friends can come up with a new game and start playing immediately. Just decide on a theme for the game, pick a rule set from the book, agree on some variations, color in one of many board game designs, and gather your die and counters!

Possible to play in any order, this book is packed with tips, tricks, and mechanics on how to design the perfect game. With 40 different rule sets, each introducing a new concept, it encourages you to develop and test your own rules. Whatever the age range or experience of players, the game that you create from this book will always be playable, entertaining, and surprising. Each board you create is easy to pull out and completely reusable to play again and again.

With 20 boards to customize, this is a fun doodle book where every page is an unfinished tabletop game. Just learn the basic concepts, color and play!

Each board is easy to pull out, and the book also includes counters, tokens, and card templates for you to cut out and color in to add another dimension to your game.

Attracting both children and adults from a variety of demographics, it is estimated that the board and card games market was worth $1.2 billion in the US and Canada alone. This is helped along by their nostalgic resurgence in TV shows like Netflix’s Stranger Things.

Kevan Davis is a designer of board, street, web and escape room games whose work includes the zombie browser game Urban Dead and the housework tracker Chore Wars.
