If you haven't visited http://www.boardgamizer.com, you really should. It gives all kinds of board game design ideas at the click of a button. So, here's the exercise: go to the site, copy down the information, come here, and propose a game. Feel free to add several - I've started off with five. They don't have to be complete designs, just ideas. Also, feel free to comment and add some more ideas based on the mechanics, theme, victory conditions, and constraints of each item.

MECHANICS: Dice Rolling, Trick-Taking, Route Building
THEME: Vegas, Alternate History
VICTORY: Secret Objective
CONSTRAINT: Can't Use Cards

TITLE: Gods of Vegas
IDEA: It is a world where Las Vegas is the central hub of the country. Like Olympus of old, it is home to a number of different gods that were responsible for creating the land. These gods are playing games with the people of Vegas, playing a dice-based trick-taking game (your hand is rolled on dice, and you play different dice to try to win the tricks) with the winner able to influence the direction of the new Strip being built. Each god has a secret objective (on tiles, I guess, since no cards are allowed) that needs to be met for victory - most casinos, longest single street, etc.

MECHANICS: Auction/Bidding
THEME: Heroes, Go Cart Racing
VICTORY: Beat the Game
CONSTRAINT: For more than 6 players

TITLE: Hero Kart!
IDEA: A series of ten races. At the beginning of each race, your superhero will bid on a cart that will compete in an unknown race. Based on the stats of your cart, each race will be resolved to determine the winner. Points are awarded based on the number of players (up to 10), but beware of the supervillain who is competing in a very tricked out cart.

MECHANICS: Mathematic Calculation
THEME: American Revolutionary War, Planet Conquests
VICTORY: Defending the Base
CONSTRAINT: Can't have cubes

TITLE: War for America
IDEA: The year is 1779. The American Revolutionary War is in full swing. But all of a sudden, the stakes become much higher as aliens enter the war on the side of the British, hoping to claim their own colonies. Now the Americans must defend their home using the only thing that can fight the aliens - numbers and math.

MECHANICS: Secret Unit Deployment
THEME: Giant Monsters, African Animals
VICTORY: Most Knowledge Points
CONSTRAINT: Can't Use a Board

TITLE: AfricAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!
IDEA: You are a scientist, only slightly mad. You want to conquer the world, of course (who doesn't?), and are using what you have (endangered African animals) to create monsters that will do your bidding. However, several other evil scientists have the same idea. You have to create the best combinations of monsters and then secretly send them out to create the most havoc in different locations (indicated by cards).
