Hmm, I wonder if any of our classic board games out there would work with a Rush theme ?  i.e. Monopoly, Risk, Battleship, they've been redone a million times with movie themes, cartoons, etc.

Any cool ideas for a RUSH inspired board game designs ? smile.gif

Life...Rush has had a long enough career that one could spend a lifetime being a fan smile.gif

A Roll The Bones edition of Yahtzee...rolling all threes would give extra points tongue.gif

Rush Trivial Pursuit and Pictionary yes.gif

Maybe I'll think of more...

Chutes and Ladders with Snakes and Arrows.. sorry, not my idea.. i've heard it other places. Maybe the game of Life, starring Rush. Each little block is a milestone, big event, etc. in their career.

The obvious answer would be the aforementioned Monopoly & Trivial Pursuit. Here are some not so obvious ones:

Risk: 2112!

I'm pretty sure the guilty party, the Professor on the drum kit, did it with a monkey wrench in the libary  smile.gif

Really though, a video game would be the way to go. And not just playing along with Rush tunes. I mean an actual story based around some Rush lyrics/albums (you guys know what I'm talking about).

Any Dominion fans here? I could totally see a Rush-themed expansion set (with artwork by Hugh Syme), with kingdom cards like:

Funeral Dirge
Witch Hunt
The Watchmaker
Shipwrecked Mariner
Scarlet Mist
Scheming Demon
Thailand Express
La Guillotine
Cask of '43
Temples of Syrinx
Captain of Industry
Double Agent

Ohmigod, that would be so awesome. If I do say so myself.
