How to (Re)Make a Custom Board Game

I love board games and am always checking out the game shelves when I go thrift store shopping, so I notice a lot of the old classics getting dusty on those shelves. I've always loved games—I even made up my own when I was a youngster—but even more than games, I love to take old things and turn them into something creative and new. A remade custom, personalized board game would be an amazing gift for the game-lover in your life, and probably pretty cool even for someone who's not a self-proclaimed board-game nerd!

I'm going about this tutorial in a vague manner, in an attempt to make it accessible for any board game you want to reconstruct—I chose Clue for my example because it seemed the most obvious game to personalize. My first vision was for the suspects to be my friends, the places to be our favorite Portland hangouts, and the weapons to be crafty items like knitting needles and scissors. However, for this how-to, I thought the project might be more appealing if more people could relate than me and my few buddies, so I chose to use one of my favorite TV shows, Arrested Development. The suspects became six of the show characters, and the places became locations from the show; I left the weapons the original six because I'm no expert at tiny clay sculpting, but I'd love to see someone make custom weapons!

Create a playable game featuring your loved ones friends or favorite characters and watch them flip out with excitement! If you want your game to be super-arty cool, you can paint all over the board, or add other pictures beyond the original spots.

Played the board game CLUE last night

by -

It just seemed to go by so fast and
with not much excitement.
We played with 2 players. You scatter the pieces around the board and split up the cards. Then when someone moves into a room you can guess the person, weapon and room the murder happened in against the cards you have and see if your competition has them.
There must be a more challenging way to play.
We also watched the movie. It was entertaining for 1985.

I take that back....

The link doesn't show the rares. It just shows the Odds and says it's a rare list.
Here's the clue on how to tell if you have the rare.
Out of the set, the one that is LAST alphabetically is the rare piece. Exception being Board Walk/Park Place where Board Walk is the rare.
So Baltic/Mediterranean...Baltic is common and Mediterranean is Rare.
I just grabbed the first google result. #2 highlights the rares.
