The great city of Seattle, WA, already has a museum of flight, a museum of (rock) music, and a museum of science fiction. And now Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen is going to fund a board game museum here*. And to top it off he has asked us BGGs to design it. So what rooms and features will we need to have in this board gaming mecca?




*Well, not really. But he should. Apologies if this has been done before.

As the first room in the museum, the Go Room will be lined with ancient board games, and ancient versions of those games where possible. As with every game on display in the museum, there will be full rules to each game, including variants, and brief tutorials or samples of play. In the center of the room will be instructors teaching go to anyone interested, as well as open boards to play on once you learn how.

The sides of the Chess Room will feature three levels of the most beautiful and original chess sets in the world. The walls will feature bios of the great players, alongside their best games. Two balconies will jut out over the center of the room, where players can sign up to play games on the life-sized board below. The player's moves will be relayed down to the thirty two dedicated staff members who will be posing as chess pieces.

Still in the history wing of the museum, the Card Room will explore the big card games like bridge, poker, hearts, canasta, and solitaire in the exhibits. The walls will be packed with rules to thousands of card games. People dressed up as playing cards will wander around and do magic tricks (watch out for the king of hearts - he's wild and crazy). A running compilation of the card playing moments in the movies will run on monitors around the room.

Before getting into more modern games, the museum's guests will go through the Mechanic Room, where various game mechanisms are explained. Action points, simultaneous action, tile placement, card drafting, trick-taking, dice rolling, and others will have large interactive displays to teach people about the various ways games are designed. For those guests whose feet are getting tired, they can tour the room on the giant crayon railroad, or have a seat in the pattern building.

The first of the modern rooms will be dedicated to monopoly. The outer edge of the room will patterned after the original monopoly board. At each square will be the front of a little building representing some sort of informational or interactive booth. The whole first side will be dedicated to the sordid history of the game, while the last side will be dedicated to the many different versions that exist. Boardwalk will have a highly secure display of one of the gold and diamond sets, and an exit to the next room.

Risk will get its own room, and there will of course be displays of all the different flavors of risk that have been made. The history of war games display will also be found here. A giant map of the board will function as a swimming pool for visitors to relax in while men in military uniforms serve cocktails from around the world.

All games from this era will be played on an orange shag carpetted floor and will be moderated and taught by hippies, disco dancers, and punk rockers. Every night a giant vacuum will come through and pick up the lost pieces, which will be hand sorted and returned to their games by morning.

The 80's room will double as a large maze. The best of 80's games will be displayed and played at various points throughout the maze. Any guests who discover that they are playing a game with the staff member Mr. X will get a coupon for a free drink at one of the cafes.

Finally, we're getting to the rooms where the BGG designers will be earning their keep. The 90's saw an explosion of good games get released, and the 90's Room of the museum will reflect that. The game will be packed to the rafters with copies of all the favorites. Knowledgeable staff will be on hand to teach the games on the tables set up all over the large mound of catan in the middle of the room. A staff member dressed as a robber knight will come around and interrupt games by doing bad comic routines based on board games and pitiable impressions of board game designers. Once through his routine, people who have just suffered through it will get to choose which table to inflict him on next.

The last of the era specific rooms will be the Now Room. This will also be the gift shop. Large, well lit, friendly hosts, with plenty of tables to play your newly purchased games on. A barbershop quartet will sing songs with names of games in the title like Puerto Rico and Ticket to Ride.

The children's room will double as a daycare, as staffers watch the rugrats and teach them age appropriate games. Kids will be enchanted by the giant Loopin' Louie tower in the middle of the room, from which a mustachioed pilot will zoom around overhead and make silly noises.

In the Party and Social Game Room the walls will be made of monitors that show nothing but people giving clues for party games of all sorts. All the various clues will be for the same word or phrase at the same time, and it will loop through a large series of them before repeating. It will be gloriously cacaphonous, if that's even a word. No one will want to play games in here because of the chaos, but they will have fun trying to outguess their friends at what the given word is. Staff members in this room will only communicate via charades.

Near the end of the museum's initial version (before expansion) is the Sackson Room. The centerpiece to this room is a large can't stop rock climbing wall. And of course, there will be a gamut of his games around for playing.

Covers to Dr. Knizia's games will be made into big modern art cards (in the style of the artists in the game) and then hung on along the walls. There will be a camel petting zoo, and a running competition to see who can lift the most of his games off the ground at a time.

Bathrooms in the museum will be named after great games that were passed over for lesser games by the Spiel des Jahr committee. An attendant will pass out little mint colonists and offer you a lite metal comb for your hair (it is well known that you can't stop eating the mints).

If you are going to have a museum you need to of course have all the games that were major milestones. Gettysburg along with Tactics II were the very first wargames. Published by Avalon Hill in 1958. The map had squares rather than hexes which came along in a later version.

A room for abstracts would also be in order; perhaps call it "Modern Abstracts" to help distinguish it from the rooms for older games like Go and Chess.

This sounds like a great museum, but what to do with the kiddies while you're exploring the depths of the abstract gallery or enjoying a moment in the adult game section with your special someone?

How about leaving them in a playroom designed as a humongous version of Hungry Hungry Hippos? The kids would line up in four queues along the sides of the room, and then get catapulted into the center, waiting to be swallowed and sent down a fun tour of a hippapotamus's digestive tract.
