Design Contest – Summer 2018

This summer there has been a design contest for new games for the Green Box of Games. The contest has been running for the most part on the BoardGameGeek forums and in the Green Box Community Group on Facebook.

There have been a total of 14 new games proposed, most of them original, and many of them very good games, and the rules for all of them can be found on the Wiki.

Introducing the Community Wiki

The Green Box of Games community is growing, and now a wiki has been created on Fandom/Wikia to make it easier for people to publish, share and discuss game ideas and designs.

The Green Box website will contain the “official” games from the rulebooks, purchase information and other official information, but new game ideas will from now on be published to the Wiki. The Wiki is completely open, so anyone can add or edit information, even without a registered user.

Top 5 games not included in the rulebooks

The “Second to None Edition” of the Green Box of Games comes with rules for 16 different games, which can be downloaded here or browsed here.

But there are many games that didn’t make it into the rulebooks for this version, mainly to avoid having a book that was too large, while also making sure that the book had sufficient variation and balance in terms of different styles of games suited for different styles of play.

So here are a few of the games that are good enough that they could have been in the rulebook, for which we just didn’t find room. Continue reading “Top 5 games not included in the rulebooks”

Updated list of games

This page contains a list of all games published on this site. We’ve attempted a very simple categorisation of the games, to help you find the games you will enjoy the most. Most games fall into the following categories, with a few self-explanatory exceptions.

  • Race – Players compete to complete a track or objective first
  • Conflict – Players attack each other and capture pieces
  • Control – Players vie for control over the board/cards/pieces
  • Collection – Players try to gain/create sets or combinations to score the most points

All games are also categorised on the dimension of luck vs strategy. “Balanced” means the game includes both luck and strategy in fair amounts. The complexity rating can be interpreted as how long it takes to explain the rules. Continue reading “Updated list of games”
