Hey guys! Just want to share with you the "Christmas Tree" I made with my girlfriend, which is decorated with board game pieces.

The pieces are from 13 board games. Can you find out what the games are?

This is my first try on BGG. Hope you like it!



Merry Christmas! Best wishes from China!

Updated on December 27: Thanks to everybody who replied or read this thread. Hope you had a great Christmas and wish to play board games with you guys some day. The answers to all components on the tree are as follow:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
1. Endeavor: Crown on the top, all disks in white, green, read, purple, the card with a tower picture by the heart;
2. Tigris & Euphrates: 8 wooden tokens with red or green icons (Lion, Bull, Vase and Bow);
3. Ticket to Ride: the three strips in yellow and red on the tree;
4. Navegador: All boats, black meeple in the heart and yellow meeple on "Festival" card;
5. Brass: the top card (with a yellow boat on it);
6. Acquire: the "American" and "Tower" board;
7. Caylus: the square board of a statue above the heart;
8. Pick Picnic: the card with turkey;
9. Through the Ages: the heart shape and the Great Wall card;
10. Stone Age: the other meeples besides the Navegador ones;
11. Agricola: 6 animals above the yellow trains, plus one by the heart;
12. Twilight Struggle: "Nixon Plays the China Card";

Right! but have to admit that the Agricola animeeples are the only components there from a pirate game. I chose them just because they are too cute to be put aside.
I wish Santa give me a genuine Agricola with animeeples tonight (already 12.24 here in China)

Great Idea! Will do it

Actually the light was totally a coincidence. My girlfriend just received it from somebody as Christmas present yesterday. And it just perfectly matched this tree

Re: Board Game Christmas Tree
Ships are from Navegador, as is the black man in the heart. It's not Antike because there's an orange one.

Is the crown from Citadels? I've seen it before.

The disks could be from anywhere, but they only exist as red,white,green,blue, so that's a clue.

The heart shape looks like Puerto Rico sized octagons but they're red and there's too many of them,so maybe Downfall of Pompeii? Louis XXIV? Or PR 'colonists'?

Thanks for your hard work. I appreciate it

you are the only one that has guessed Navegador. No body else has seen it. (I post it on a Chinese site too)

But the crown and disks are from Endeavor. The heart shape is composed of red tokens for military action from Through the Ages.
