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!

Although split into six pieces, those pieces can only be combined into a circular board.

Hexes in a hex shape. Great abstract too. Nick Bentley did a fine job coming up with this game and its original capture mechanism.

If you print out a hexhex3, hexhex4, or hexhex5 board then obviously the paper the real board (game) space is printed on will be rectangular, but you can (a) trim the excess (unprinted paper) away with scissors, say into a hex shape or (b) go big and just make a more permanent board on a circular tree trunk piece of lumber (like I'm doing), and then it will fit this GeekList.

Well, it's a square, but it has rounded corners.

Not sure if this counts as modular or not... The entire track is used every game, but depending on how you flip each segment will change the shape.

If folks don't think it belongs, I'll be happy to delete.

The game board is actual modular.
The action boards are rectangular, main board is round.
The smaller pieces between the boards have no function in the game. They just connect the boards. You can toss them back in the box without changing anything in game play.
