Board game manufacturers courteously provide universal icons on their game boxes to show number of players, recommended player ages, and estimated playtimes.

From gallery of markmorrise

These icons not only describe the game, they also serve as a warning of sorts not to expect that the game will play more quickly than we'd guess, or play with less or more players, etc.

To that same end, here are a few more ideas for universal icons to put on board game boxes to describe the game and warn us not to have unrealistic expectations.

This game has misogynistic attributes.

This game can technically be played with two players, but it will suck.

Some are born to move the world To live their fantasies But most of us just dream about The things we'd like to be Sadder still to watch it die Than never to have known it For you, the blind who once could see The bell tolls for thee...
