"Innovative Games" - Games That Have Been Patented
- United States
The perception of what constitutes gaming excellence in BGG culture is all wrong! Rather than subjectively label a game \"innovative\" based upon popular Geek opinion, I decided to research truly innovative games using an objective, fact-based criterion: whether or not they have been patented.
The following geeklist features games that have US patents. Each entry will contain an image of the first page of the patent, the patent title, inventor, assignee, and link to a file containing the full patent (pending approval). My hope is to add to this list over time. If you find a game patent that isn't referenced here, please let me know.
During my search, I\'ve found numerous games that are not in the database! I\'ve saved some of the more interesting patents. Perhaps one day I\'ll clear out the backlog and enter them into the database.
