Banned Board Games – Quest of the Magic Ring

Banned Board Games: Episode Four – Quest of the Magic Ring?

In this month’s Banned Board Games we look at Land of Legend’s Quest of the Magic Ring. This fantasy board game from the seventies may not be offensive or crude like some of the games we’ve discussed thus far, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t just as stupid. This questionable board game brings new meaning to parody, with its poorly disguised references to an already loved fantasy story. Where is the line between a tribute and a rip off? How long can you say something is “inspired by” another work, before it becomes too similar? Find out more in the above episode of Banned Board Games.
