Name your favorite Shabbos-Permissible Word (Board) Games.
Word games? You can’t write words on Shabbos, even as a game.
Scrabble. Maybe. Ish.
Long summer Shabbosim means more board games (otherwise we’ll be bored). Any recommendations for Shabbos permissible games?
We always played rummi(kub) on Shabbos. Are number sequences any better than creating words?
What types of games do you like? Deep strategy games? Light-hearted card games? Abstract games? A specific genre (war, economic, etc.)?
Tell us what you like so that we can give you better recommendations.
My wife and I often play Scrabble on Shabat. We can’t write down scores so we use bookmarks in books. We also use only the flat boards with the loose letter tiles so that it is clear that nothing is being fixed in place. It is a lot of fun although she beats me about 2/3 of the time.
We use poker chips. We also use the same type of board that charliehall mentions.
