So there is a game wherein one can write "sudu bring me a samich" as part of the rules? Excellent! 188.8.131.52 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. 184.108.40.206 07:48, 13 July 2021 (UTC)
Here's a closeup of the games with added math:

- 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... 220.127.116.11 21:32, 14 July 2021 (UTC)
The one on top in front of Ponytail is Wits & Wagers. --18.104.22.168 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 .22.214.171.124 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.--126.96.36.199 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?
