My Collection of House Rules


Andy Merritt – May 2006


As well as running a 2nd hand board games business (MNG-AJM), I am also a keen games player, and rules tinkerer.  I have made up my own house rules for many games and I also collect and adapt those of other people from a variety of sources.  I have done this for some years, and so in some cases I may have swiped someone else’s house rules and due to the fog which descends on my mind over time I may have forgotten where I got them from, or worse still I may now erroneously think I made them up myself.  Thus if you see something here which you know should be credited to someone else please tell me and I will give credit where it is due.  Similarly if there is something here which I really shouldn’t have put here please tell me and I will apologise and remove it!


Here is a list of the games I have house rules for, and as I get around to it I will create links to the various documents so you can get at them directly.  In the meantime if you want to see any of these which don’t have a link just email me and I will forward the document to you.  There are actually lots more games I have house rules for, but they haven’t been typed in – they are just on a scrap of paper in my copy of the game.  One day they will be transcribed.


If you are looking for any of these games please get in touch as I do stock lots of these games! (see my home page: MNG-AJM).
