New game ideas for BGA

Two abstract strategy games that BGA might consider adding to the site:

1. Yinsh

This board game is a cross between Checkers, Pente and Reversi.
For more information see:
Yinsh review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ho8OxwpMbc8
Yinsh overview: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/YINSH


2. Onitama
The rules of Onitama are easier than chess with only five movement options per game, but trust me the strategy is can be complex.
Since both players see all five movement cards winning depends upon each player's ability to plan ahead since you know your opponent's two movement options.
For more information see:

Here is a thread for suggestions like this:
https://boardgamearena.com/forum/viewto ... f=9&t=1040

If all 528 posts in there instead started their own thread, the forum would be quite flooded by game suggestions ;)

Do you know anything about the publisher / designer rights for these games?

The GIPF games are on Boiteajeux so the rights may be available but Onitama is surely a no as the publisher is trying to make money off the app version.

I am registered on this site and I say what I have to say on the forums of the BGA site. I don’t care about other sites' forums : if a forum is to be overwhelmed with messages, as much as it is a forum that I regularly consult.

Um, that is a link to the BGA forums.... Silene was pointing out that there was already a forum topic for the information originally posted in this thread, and that it shouldn't have its own thread. The forums have rules that should be respected.

Unlike the thread pointed out by Silene, this thread is not connected to another web site, and this one can therefore host full and interesting discussions. If you think a rule is not being complied with, please quote it specifically. General considerations are used to make small talk.

Which website was Silene's thread pointing to? Looks like BoardGameArena to me... :D While the forum post that Silene linked does reference another site, the post itself is on BGA. The thread listed is the appropriate spot on this website to request games, not creating new topics.

En nouvel idée de jeu j'aimerai beaucoup retrouver abyss ou encore wingspan. Après ce que j'aimerai aussi beaucoup retrouver sur bga c'est de pouvoir jouer à des jeux solo soit face à une ia soit contre le temps ;)
