# Calculus/Polygon Shaped Board games.

Question
Dear Prof Mervyn

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polygon
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Board_game
http://www.scrabble.com/‎
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monopoly_(game)

Will it be difficult to design and construct all Board games geometrically viz scrabble, monopoly, snakes and ladders, ludo etc where maximum number of players can exceed 4 ?.

Games like Chess, Checkers can be excluded as it is a 2 player game.

The advantages could be more number of players can play the Board Game. i.e. n>4.

As a example, The scrabble board game rules will remain the same, more tiles has to be constructed for the same.

For example : Hexagonal Scrabble Board, Pentagonal Monopoly,
Octagonal snakes and ladders, decagon ludo game  etc.

Thanks & Regards,

Hello Prashant.
Its good to be back.I had some financial problems but I hope they will be sorted out permanently.
These days engineering is so advanced, using advanced physics and mathematics, it is easy to design just about any thing. There is even a 3 dimensional chess set.
If you have ever studied Einsteins General Relativity, there is a beautiful formalism to Solve his field equations numerically using a type of Geometry developed by Regge, where you make up a sphere using tetrahedrons.
