Set up a normal game of Power Grid, but remove all plants other than the 4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42 plants. Sort them so they come out in that order. Rip the stage 3 card in half and throw the pieces on the board. This determines the starting player.

Play on a map of a mysterious island. Cities are not marked - you have to find them first!

The first player to power 8 cities gets to send plant 23 back in time and determine how the stage 3 card pieces land.

Also, there are a bunch of rules you probably overlooked in the rulebook. These will be revealed to your great astonishment at a later date.

Replace the werewolf cards with with Others, and every other role with passenger cards.

The Others get to kill someone every night, and the passengers get to have exciting confrontations about unimportant things every day.

At some point, one of the passengers will shockingly discover a mysterious door in the ground. Locate the explosives, taking care not to have them blow you up. Place the explosives on and around the door. Use the matches to set the fuse and quickly retreat to the safety of the jungle. The explosion will gain you entry into the underground structure, thus ending the game.

At this point, it is completely unclear who wins. Heck, for all you know, it was someone who wasn't even in the game.

Combine the box of Tal der Könige, rules from Lord Of Creation, parts from Cosmic Encounter, graphic design of Marracash, the setting of Divine Right and play it on the board of Tigris and Euphrates.

Take whatever game you enjoy, or whatever game you don't enjoy... it doesn't really matter. Burn it, run over it with a steamroller, and get some hack writers to make a crappy ass story to explain why it is burned and crushed. Bonus points, if your guests can look at the destroyed game and see some kind of deeper meaning in it. After all, it's nothing like anything else on network TV, I mean main stream boardgames, so it must be good. Obviously...

108 minutes after the start of the game a polar bear meeple is placed on the board. Players then take it turns to roll a dice - the first player to roll a 6 kills the polar bear meeple (if after all players have rolled no one has rolled a 6 just keep rolling until someone does). The polar bear meeple is then removed from the board and plays no further part in proceedings. Also, no one is allowed to mention it for the rest of the game - anyone who does suffers a meaningless and obscure flashback.

Play as normal. The full experience of the show is already in the cards.
