In this list we talk about board games that have boards that are irregular. Meaning not the standard square or rectangular shape.

No modular boards because that's cheating!

Is not strictly modular, because the map is built at the start of the game, and always comes up as (almost) the same shape.

There have been a number of multiplayer Chess games on the market, but this one stands out from most in that the spaces on the board are designed so that allied players sit opposite each other, with the pieces attacking the pair of players on the left and right.

Most moves are easy to determine after one gets how the knights move. Rooks move through opposite sides; bishops move through opposite corners; queens and kings do both. It's fun watching pieces moving in a path that arcs around. Control of the central part of the board gets wild.

It forces a whole different way of perceiving strategy.

I feel like this is cheating, but it *is* in the database, and it is really unusual.

This is a battle game for two players in which one person plays as a band of woodland critters and the other plays as a giant monster called a Guardian. There's a traditional square board in the game, but the critters can leap onto the Guardian itself to attack it, so each Guardian has both a huge meeple to represent its position on the main board and a separate board in the shape of its body.

The board itself is a quadrilateral, but the plastic is 3-dimensional.

It's the player boards that are oddly shaped, not the central board. But I think it should be allowed on this list - close enough.
