“Crossmatch,” from 1972, is a kind pictorial version of Scrabble, created using images cut out from back issues of Popular Science. You place the magnetic image squares on the board based on inventive relationships – two cards might match because they both contain circles, or scenes of nature.
The author warns that beginners may be uncomfortable with the lack of competition in Crossmatch. “The subtlety of relationships, the beauty of conception, and the delight of the imagination will become your natural goals.” The best part is that you can store the whole thing on the wall as modern art between games.
