Simple Idea. Define One Game in terms of Another. I've added a few of the low hanging fruit to get this list started, but I'd really like to see what you guys can come up with.

NOTE: I deeply enjoy all of these games and there is definitely more to these games than indicated below. This is just a light-hearted list meant to have a little fun.

Ra is like
(Coloretto) but only one lot is available at a time, and you bid on it, and the scoring is a bit wonkier.

Terra Prime, but in canoes instead of spaceships, and without aliens to fight or tech to buy.

According to Richard Ham (Item for Geeklist "Rahdo Runs Through... Games!" ), Fantastiqa is like a very (very) stripped-down

Mage Knight Board Game, but also with a sweeter demeanor.

Start with players cooperating to escape/survive a sinking island (Forbidden Island)


Add in worker placement with dice rolling for results (Stone Age)


Combine with fulfilling recipes using the collected resources (Lords of Waterdeep)


And toss in a dash of scheduled invasions based on a die roll (Kingsburg)


Bake for 60 minutes and you end up with Atlantis Rising
