It sounds like everyone is going to make something completely new with the games. I'm just updating one into something that everyone will love at home. It's going from plain to AWESOME!!

I'm in the middle of collecting items around thrift stores to make my own chess set with a theme that my boyfriend and I like. Would this count? This might inspire me to keep at it!

Hey, guys!  The challenge this month is to revamp an old board game.  So if you have an old board game and you're revamping it, you're good to go! Smiley

You must begin with an old game as you're starting point, though.  For example, using a necklace, blender and bottle of glue to create the next revolution of Monopoly wouldn't fit this month's theme.  But taking a game of Monopoly and making it into Craftopoly or a Monopoly purse would definitely fit the theme!!

Hope this helps!  Let me know if you have any additional questions.

Hey there!  This will totally count, if you start with and somehow include as many of the parts of the original game (chess set, in your case) as possible.  So your challenge would be to somehow reuse the original board and pieces (king, queen, rooks, etc.) and then add in your custom, thrifted pieces.  Keep in mind that you don't necessarily have to use the pieces as they were originally intended, so really get creative with the original 32!  I'm envisioning this as a reeeeally awesome project, so I really hope you do it!

So this month we're challenging you once again to bring life to an old board game!

Your project should reuse as many parts of the game as possible.  You can remake it into something totally different and unexpected, or perhaps even make it into a new game altogether.  You can use other craft supplies and components in your project, but the results should really focus on the board game elements.
