I didn't know if the DIY forum was the right place for this - so forgive me if it should be somewhere else.

My fiance and I would really like to incorporate a board game theme into whatever we use as a guestbook at our wedding. We've contemplated just buying a game with a gorgeous board (ie. anything by Michael Menzel) and having people sign the board - but we're stuck on any other suggestions, or games that would make a good item for a 'guest book'.

So I open it up to the BGG community - do you have thoughts about what would make a good wedding guestbook for guests to sign at the wedding, but still be a mostly useable game afterward?

Even if the game is not useable - would the board be nice enough to possibly frame and display on the wall at home?

Thanks for your input!

If it was me I'd theme it around ...and then, we held hands.. Perhaps a signed and then framed PNP board. . .or maybe signed cards. The concept on that game just lends itself to your purpose. Oh and congrats!

EDIT. I should preface this by saying that you should play it focusing on enhancing an already wonderful relationship (and not to "save" a relationship as is the original theme). Sorry about the thematic oversite there. . .when my SO and I play it it's always making something good better.

One Idea would be making it a "Legacy" type board game. IE The markings on the game are intentional. It could be as simple as a Roll and move gameboard with boxes on the board available for people to sign, or each guest could create their own Apples to Apples card for the couple.

maybe everyone glues their initials next to their signature using Scrabble tiles? (or simulated Scrabble tiles printed on heavy paper ?)

It might be fun to create your own version of Carcassonne and have each person customize a tile. Simplest would be to buy blank tiles, official or otherwise, and give people simple rules (edges must be fully a city, field or road in the middle, etc), but would be easier on them if you had some rough outlines created. People could then color them in (great for kids) and also write congrats, drawings of you in your new life/home, etc.

Give each guest a box of crayons and a blank Dixit card.

We did this exact thing for our wedding. People loved it and whenever we play Jenga, we can revisit the various comments people left.

if you could come-up with 6 different little ideas, have each person/couple/family roll a big D6 to decide which type of signature they use.
