This is something i wanted to do for a long time. Let us make a Boardgame X is a crossover between Y+Z topic.

We all know (mostly modern boardgames) boardgames who are quite novel and interesting, even fun, but are not that original at all. I won't pass any judgement on this, hey if a game is a great game, a game is a great game and i will play it! This is ofcourse outside of the question. The question is: name some boardgame and then tell us what two games it reminds you off (the boardgame you first mention is the sum of the two boardgames it reminds you off). This can be a mechanic thing only, but also a complete game system (which is easier with games who only have one system ofcourse). More than two are also allowed

Ill show you my examples to show what i mean, what are yours?


- Mission: Red Planet = El Grande + Citadels
- Mysterium = Clue + Dixit
- Dead of Winter = Castles of Burgundy + Resistance + Pandemic

Have fun!

The Babylon Project was our last best hope for peace. It failed. In the year of the Shadow War, it became something greater, our last best hope for victory.

The Expanse Board Game is a cross between twilight struggle and the coin games.

Twilight Struggle is a cross between El Grande and the card driven games where you place influence such as Washington's war (we the people).

Twilight Imperium (Third Edition) is a cross between Twilight Imperium (Second Edition) and Puerto Rico.

The most fun I ever had with Mysterium was ruining a card for the owner of the game. The card is not damaged, but he cannot look at it again without some uncomfortable thoughts.

The one I mean has a picture of a robot. It looks like the result of Johnny 5 having intimate relations with a refrigerator. Which is yours?

Popular opinion ^^

Aeon's End = Dominion + Sentinels of the Multivers (plus a ton of streamlining).
