Guess the Board Game

Žan Anderle – January 14, 2022

Inspired by Wordle’s simplicity and modesty (great short fun and asks nothing in return), I created a somewhat similar game. Except it’s about board games.

Check it out!

Every day there’s a new puzzle; or rather, a new board game to guess. Everyone gets the same board game and the goal of the game is to try and guess with as few hints as possible. You get 3 guesses and you can reveal as many hints as you’d like. But with each hint revealed, you’ll get a lower score at the end (with some hints being worth more points than the others).

The answer must match the name of the board game exactly. However, alternative names (as listed on Board Game Geek) are accepted as well.

Obviously, this is quite a bit different than Wordle, but I think it’s still a lot of fun.

I plan to do more fun things like this in the future. The web app for organizing board game will also be launched soon.
