Hey guys so my roommate is a game art and design major and has an assignment where he needs to modify a board game. He needs to figure out what board game to use and have it in his hand by thursday so we need suggestions quickly. It can be an obscure board game but he is looking for something that could use an overhaul in game mechanics and art style but that is also already fun and interesting in itself. Please let me know as soon as you can if you have any suggestions of games for us to look at. Thanks a million.

Zombies is already a great & well established game but there are some minor "RAW/non-RAW" issues that could be resolved in doing a themed game

an easy update and change would be to use the MARVEL ZOMBIES Comic book series to re-Theme the game based on those events and characters

Heroclix are a dime a dozen for the older stuff, hero clix and Haloclix maps are super easy to get or reproduce as well(1 1/2" Grid) and photoshoping in new "event cards" with the Mutants in mind would be a snap!

the only issue would be finding sutable ZOMBIE figs
either buy the actual ZOMBIES product expansion or create paper token zombies...

Any of the cheap ass games products would work.

I would like to see a more competitive cut throat version of Candyland. Give me options to really screw over my opponents.

We settled on a game called Memoir 44. It's a modular, scenario based board-game. Should be very fun for him to mod. I'll post progress. Thanks.

Uses the Commands & Colors system that you also see in Battlelore, C&C Ancients, and the soon to be released C&C Napoleonics.

I'd do a Sci Fi version, Dan, as they don't have anything like that yet.
