New dumb game design idea: a board game where you play conspiracy theorists connecting events and conspiracies on a big wall of photos and newspaper headlines.

Mechanically, it is just a reskin of Ticket to Ride. Each conspiratorial idea is a city, and it takes some number of clues to tie them together. So you have your pet theory connecting, say, the British royal family to Atlantis, but the easiest way to do that is by going through the lizard people space.

@nickwedig I'd want it to be a hair more than reskin, because I'd want the layout to change on each playthrough.

I was trying to think of new rules to add that made it or than a reskin. That is a pretty good idea for one.
