I know that the subject of homemade games is a big can of worms, and I’m not really willing to open it here, but I need to make my point clear...

I started to build home made games decades ago, when I began to design games of my own. Since that time though, this strange hobby of mine has spread upon other already existing games: partly because they were not available for sale (I live in an isolated island, and moreover I am a sucker for oop games),but mostly because I had came up with some idea of a new theme, or of a new set of rules of my own, that I wanted to bring into life...

Disclaimer: every now and then, I got requests from bgg geeks for sending them some of my files or material they see here... I won't do that . I have the deepest respect the designer's work, and I actually consider my variants here as a humble tribute to their genius. My pastime costs me a lot of work of thinking, amounts of time, and quite a few bucks as well, as in a lot of cases I also own the "official" version of the game along with my personal variant (the later not being systematically the cheapest).

I hope that this list will stimulate your imagination enough to make you experiment the rare and precious pleasures of the (re)designing process, or at least, to discover some new ideas for your next shopping tour at the game store!

Design variations

Some colored figurines bring a little bit of "life" into this (still) abstract game. Their attitude suggest that they are intending to break into a wall, which suits the mechanisms of the game.



The first row of the board is foldable, allowing to switch the board quickly (and neatly) between between the 7x7 and 7x6 dimensions.

Design variations: There were quite a few reasons that led me to bring this game into a new theme: “Smillies against the robot”. The main matter was that I wanted to avoid the gore to my children, but there was also a lot of details that I felt did not fit the original theme, that I tried to fix somehow.

- As the monster behaves more like a robot that a monster, mine IS a robot!



- My pawns are just made of pictures of smilleys glued upon plastic corks. I do not need different colours for both sides of the pawns, it is obvious to see when a cork is upside down.




- I did not found the doric columns convincing (more about this in my dedicated review http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/372487) so my board does not stand any. Some squares are of slightly different texture, that helps to figure where to put the “blocks” and puddle in place in the beginning of the game.



- Talking about the blocks ( incidentally the teleportation option fits perfectly my SF theme) I decided to put some horror in my theme too. The smilleys are hiding behind the very same blocks that gives me a fright into my own home: the cooking machine, the washing machine, the oven .. all these evil machines that kill the spare time I try to save for games.




- There is a river of electricity going round the board. This explains why you cannot push a block there: you would be caught by the lightning. Actually, every time the monster pushes you there, you are painfully thrown up and down by the flow of power until you raises the round platform at the bottom corner (where the departure takes place).



- Unfortunately, during the second part of the game, the deck of cards hides this platform, so if your pawn gets caught into the lightning, it will be shaken to death…



- Also added a reminder of the 20 max steps upon the targets cards



- and of course, puddles of oil…

Design variations: I’m not sure the new theme is anymore realistic than the original game, but the experience it relates seems to raise a souvenir to everyone I know. Painful memory indeed, but I hope the game can help you take it with a smile.

The board shows a Turkish toilets room where the gorillas went to get rid of a very doubtful meal. Some are ill and have a white …well, you know what. Those who are sane made the usual brown thing.



But suddenly they realise that their toilet paper is out of reach! Each gorilla must use a paper of its own colour (or it will have a terrible allergy ) and of course these papers are just at the opposite corner of the room… Go, go , you’re stinking !

Black dice are used to keep track of the turn order. When a player passes, he simply turns its die with a black face up to indicate that he will not participate to the end of the round.

Rules variations:
According to my calculations, the scoring sequences are very well balanced except for one:
Chances for "All odd or all even": 0.125
Chances for "All black or all white": 0.125
Chances for "All matching colours": 0.125
Chances for "Straight": 0.056
Therefore I have changed the straight for the following combination :"sum of the dice lesser than 10". Its probability is 0.097, wich is much closer to the other values, for a more balanced game.

Real shells for the snails for more realism...But we only play with real worms on halloween zombie
Instead of packing the plates (buttons), we put them side by side, hiding the worm symbol: it makes it easier to remember that this worm cannot be taken anymore.

Rules variations:
We like to play with the following rule: If the final roll of a player gives a score already own twice by this player (i.e with two of his plates on the corresponding field), then this player is allowed another chance by throwing again once the very last rolled dice.

Design variations: I only used coloured kites, no dots. My set also contains a single Joker tile instead of the three of the original game.

Rules variations: These are intended to diminish the luck factor:
1) Each colour is worth 1 point except for the Joker 0 point.
2) The formula for scoring I use is: (1 point by vertex)/(number of hexagons)
3) At the end of the game, add to your score 1 point for each tile of your opponents.

Design variations:

A friend of mine bought this Othello set at the flea market for me.. with two pawns missing! I had the idea to convert it into an Hexxagon set, by clipping an hexagonal board onto the square velvet board, with the hope that the pawns would still fit into the hexagon spaces. This happened to be a surprisingly challenging math exercise, which could be dryly be described as: "construct the regular hexagon of maximum area that you can fit inside a given square".
Happily the solution (easier to find than its proof) was of just the perfect size for the pawns to fit in, and as a result, to turn used spare parts of Othello into a brand new Deluxe Hexxagon set!

Design variations: This is the same set of tiles I use for kaliko. I glued a little rubber base on each penguin’s head, so that each player can stick a pin of his colour into it. Therefore the same set of 8 penguins can serve for 2,3 or 4 players, and players can change their penguins from game to game if they wish.

Rules variations: as they are more tiles than into the official game, the total number of fishes varies at each game.
Another home rule I have experimented a couple of time is about the setting up phase. Each player can drop a penguin upon a 1 fish tile, OR move one (thus one can play the whole game with less than all his penguins)... Need more testing, but quite challenging.

I have hand made the board, and the rest is from Kinder surprise: kangoos and Speedy gonzales (fast run is an asset when you have to be everywhere). The head of the kangoos are removable, which helps when you have to indicate when your kangoo has already passed the line.



Rules variations:

In order to make the games shorter is: when a kangoo has reached the arrival line, its head s removed, but its legs stay in place, and can still be jumped as with complete kangoos.

The extra color, allows a five players game, in which each player driving three kangoos.

Design variations:

36 tiles are mixed up to create a new board for each game. Beads are set upon Mickey's ears for the pleasure of his home's fan club: my daughter and son
Bigger beads are used to indicate if one square has been won (by +2 scoring).
Also added some mickeys on the cards accordingly to how many (1 or 4) cards of this sort are present in the game:



Rules variations:

I have built two set of tiles, that I sometimes mixed together, so that I can play simultenaously against my two children. This of course allow more randomization of the boards.
We also enjoy this home rule: when a square is won (by a +2 scoring), all little beads upon this square are given back to their respective owners. This allows some extra defensive moves.
