Calculus/Polygon Shaped Board games.
Dear Prof Mervyn
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.
Awaiting your reply,
Thanks & Regards,

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.
If you are interested I'll senfd you more information.
