Beatle board games
« on: January 03, 2017, 10:59:01 PM »

I saw once they had a Beatle version of Monopoly.

I was thinking whether you could do other famous games with Beatle themes.

My first thought was the investigating game Cluedo ( I think it's called Clue in the US). But I suppose having a murder themed game with the Beatles could be seen in bad taste, especially with potential solutions such as "It was Brian with the guitar strap in the Reeperbahn."

Maybe Risk. For those not familiar it involves five armies seeking to dominate the world by attacking and taking over opposing armies territories. You could have a 60s theme with the Beatles, Stones, Dylan and Beach Boys (who would be the fifth is an open question) seeking to take over the globe.

Any other famous board games ripe for Beatleization?

Hmmm....there is a fun card game called UglyDoll that would adapt well. Dozens of cards are turned face down, and players take turns flipping them over. As soon as three of a kind are face up, the first player to yell "Ugly Doll!" gets to keep all three cards. At the end, the player with the most cards wins. Maybe that could be turned into "CuteBeatle" or something similar.  ;)

I too think it would be fun. I used to have a Beatles board trivia game years ago, but I couldn't find anyone willing to play it with me.

I gave my Beatles Trivial Pursuit game to my sister.  So I'm up for the online game too.

I have a rock trivia game that has a Beatles category.  Two of the cards are wrong.  I had to prove it during the game more than once.  Lol

I know.   This is the game I'm talking about (played it with Marshall when he visited).  The dark blue cards are the Beatles category.  The pink cards are Art Rock and damn near impossible to answer.



Unfortunately I cant remember the wrong questions off hand.  I would have to read through the cards.
