Board 2 Street is an ongoing project where I take a classic board game and deconstruct it to find out what makes it tick. After I’ve scared all my friends away by making them play a board game just one more time only this time…, I spend my time tearing it apart and putting it back together – with one rule: No Board! Then I gather up any remaining friends, head out to the street (or park or neighborhood) and have some crazy fun. It’s a blast!
…and a really good exercise in looking at game mechanics, which I can get quite detailed (and overly excited) about. In the coming weeks (which probably means months, if not years), I’ll be adding descriptions of each game and how they went down, including the rules that I came up with. That way, you can play them with your friends. If you do – I would LOVE to hear from you about how it went and any changes that you made. Also, if you have ideas for other games, please challenge me!
It’s a drag, it’s a bore, it’s really such a pity
