Trying to find games with themes that might appeal to my mum. She really loves Wales. Any ideas? (Aside from Snowdonia.)

The designer of Snowdonia, Tony Boydell, did other Welsh related games as well, such as:

Modern Wales or Wales in the dark ages? If it's the latter, you could check out Mabinogion which is available on the Game Crafter. One of the reviews on BGG compared it to Tales of Arabian Nights but with a bit more game to it.

How about Railways of England and Wales?

Or maybe Cornish Smuggler, if Cornwall is "close enough".

I thought about each of those as well. Railways of England & Wales (& more recently, Railways of Great Britain) at least has Wales in it. I wouldn't say it's "about" Wales though.

Because I'm not so sharp on my UK geography, I immediately thought of Cornish Smuggler & then asked myself, "Wait, where exactly is Cornwall?" I quick trip to google maps showed me I was off but gave me a bit more knowledge for the future.

I have heard of Snowdonia. I should get that game, as I have traveled the rails the game depicts.

Wales at any point in history is fine. Mabinogion actually sounds like a good candidate.

I don't know if she'll be as interested in the other Celtic nations but I know I am, so it's worth a shot.

Thanks for the suggestions, every one of you!
