Adjusting board games to the level of each player
Board games are designed for a wide variety of players, and the victory is usually determined by the skill or luck of participants. Board games have no ability to differentiate between the cognitive levels and different abilities of the players.
This creates a barrier for the weaker players to lead or win and does not create a fair game with equal footing.
