    - Danny Cowan
  • Board games and tabletop games made an easy transition to the digital realm. Even the Fairchild Channel F, an early cartridge-based console from 1976, had a straightforward version of Backgammon in its library. A few memorable video games have offered delightfully twisted takes on old favorites, however. 1998’s No One Can Stop Mr Domino is a unique action-puzzler starring a living domino, while the oddball Xbox Live Indie Games release Bloody Checkers somehow manages to turn checkers/draughts into a dungeon crawler.

    For Game Career Guide's latest Game Design Challenge, our readers designed radically altered video game adaptations of existing board games and tabletop games. Here are our top picks!
