You've been playing Monopoly or Scrabble or Trivial Pursuit all your life, and they may seem boring by now. Instead of buying a new game that you may or may not like, how about combining the games you have into something new? Intriguing idea, but actually coming up with the rules for a board game mashup is a lot of work. Lucky for us, it's already been done. Check out the Board Game Remix Kit.
There are 26 different suggestions for ways to play, plus another four in the Valentine's Day Expansion. The simplest ideas are just tweaks to the original games, to make them differently fun: a more intensely strategic Scrabble, a faster Trivial Pursuit.
Then there are the new games: use lead piping to defend yourself from zombies in the Cluedo mansion; listen to the answer from a Trivial Pursuit card, and compete to come up with the most plausible question.
Finally there are mash-ups, combining pieces from more than one game: auction off individual Scrabble tiles with your Monopoly money; solve a murder mystery with Scrabble tile anagrams.
