I was in the Chuck swap and made this game for my partner:



It's basically Sorry but has spy-themed rules, colors and cards. I named it Back to Base X because 1. I put Xs on the spaces where home is on Sorry and 2. I liked how the name sounds when you say it fast (Base X=basics. Yeah, I know I'm weird.)



For the pieces I used those little floral gem stones. The colors were surprisingly easy to find.



I put the rules in an airmail envelope.

The board itself is all felt with oodles of wonder under and thread. All totaled the game took about 9 hours to make. I love making games and spy stuff so I had a fantastic time with this.

Thanks for looking!

This ROCKS!! It's oh so very clever Smiley. I love that you used felt for the board. It's my favorite material.

That is a brilliant Idea and a great way to make games for the kids, probably could make them educational to a certain degree as well.

Cool. Game inventors are awesome! Cheesy The felt board will make it a treasure and I like the gems for pieces, they will work well with the board. Good job!

Thanks for the comments! Making games makes me happy and other people liking them makes me even happier  Smiley

Yes, you can totally make them educational! I tend to believe that playing games is educational in and of itself because it can build social skills, reasoning, and a whole host of other things. Even this game has non-exact color matching, counting, direction, etc.
