Welcome to the piecepack wiki! The piecepack is to board games what a standard deck of cards is to card games. This is a place where the piecepack community can work on game rules and exchange reviews in a collaborative space. Every page on the site is editable by everyone (see below).

If you want to jump to the Good Stuff, see the Games page for rules to over 150 games you can play with the piecepack.

The Italian gaming website Giochi sul nostro tavolo (Games on Our Table) is creating a piecepack Advent calendar for 2018. They show their readers how to make their own piecepacks, and then behind each window of the online calendar, they place a free piecepack game. (In 2017, they made a similar calendar for Decktet.) Google Translate functionality is built into the website.

See PiecepackAdventCalendar for English summaries of each day.
