This list is inspired by the recent Kickstarter announcement for Coup. A small print run of this game came out last year and it is now being put into wider distribution with a slight setting change to make it part of the same world as The Resistance.

A similar thing happened last year with the new edition of Netrunner reimplementing the older game in the same world as Android.

The shared world of Tempest now has 4 games in it.

What other Shared Worlds exist that have been created entirely in board games? Please post the "father" or originator of the world as the list item and then list other games in that shared world in the post.

Note:

Please don't post families of games (for instance The Resistance: Avalon does NOT belong to the same shared world as The Resistance and the new edition of Coup).

Also please don't post expansions or series of games (Yes all the Ticket to Rides thematically coexist and yes all the Sentinels of the Multiverse expansions share a world).

Also please don't post franchise based games (yes Star Wars Risk and X-Wing share a story world)

Bit iffy this as they are set in the same universe (and one is a sequel. but they are not really a family (as they are total different games)).
