[White Hat, Megan, Ponytail, and Cueball are sitting around a table that is covered with board game boxes. White Hat is pointing at Ponytail. Both Ponytail and Cueball are holding boxes.]

Ponytail: You may reallocate up to five tokens to your top choice from last week. Remember, the game with the least support tonight will go to the thrift store.

Ponytail: Next, we'll resume the debate over ordering expansion packs.

[Caption beneath the panel:]

We got tired of having the same repetitive arguments every week over which game to play, so we developed Board Game Argument: Legacy.

So there is a game wherein one can write "sudu bring me a samich" as part of the rules? Excellent! 06:47, 13 July 2021 (UTC)

The game Cueball is handlig seems to be Boggle, the one Meghan is leaning on might be Wingspan. Can someone identify the others? If we can get a full table, we should add it to the article. 07:48, 13 July 2021 (UTC)

Here's a closeup of the games with added math: (edit: This super-wide embedded image completely messes with both the Talk page and the Talk-embedding normal page, at least for me, so I'm editing it out for sanity's sake - the IP editor below) Frankie (talk) 16:08, 13 July 2021 (UTC)

The full original image link that will show what I edited out as a File: insertion is https://www.explainxkcd.com/wiki/images/b/b4/2488-board-games.png - there may be better ways to address it as a non-inline image (or one that does not override usual page-width limits to make everything else squash into super-small font stuck into a partial page-width column of text until I pinch-zoom it back to 'normal'), in which case I invite you to entirely edit out my comment and do it better below/above as you see fit... 21:32, 14 July 2021 (UTC)

The one on top in front of Ponytail is Wits & Wagers. -- 19:20, 13 July 2021 (UTC)

fun fact: this is a different table than the one used in another board-game themed comic, 1566: Board Game . 21:41, 13 July 2021 (UTC)Bumpf

The one with a big cursive O is the game Obsession. The one in front of White Hat is none other than Mall Madness.-- 00:22, 14 July 2021 (UTC)

Mall Madness FTW. Only a couple left unsolved - Frankie (talk) 04:13, 14 July 2021 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure the main text is riffing on RISK: Legacy, which develops a world over 15 games in which stickers are placed and cards are ripped up and unlocked for play. Thoughts? 06:17, 15 July 2021 (UTC)
