Thomas Ward's board game patent

Board Games, 2009-ongoing
(2009-ongoing. Board Games with copies of the original patents. Various materials.)


Board games is series of games never published or that have disappeared completely from the market. Of these games, and of their authors, no trace remains except the project and the rules contained in the original patent. Each game is called by the name of its inventor, because the games did not have  specific titles. As prototypes, the rules are sometimes incomplete, unclear or even absent. Players have to interpret the game and build new rules, reinventing the goals and trying to get inside the head of the inventor.
