Based on a detailed discussion of the board game “‘Fairy Tale’ Road Rage” (2000) and the comic Building Stories (2012), this chapter explores the interweaving of comics and game structures in Chris Ware’s works. By contrasting the board game with the comic, it argues that certain expectations connected with aesthetic, ludic, and narrative aspects of both works are invoked at first sight and disappointed on closer examination. Thereby, the reading viewers and the players, respectively, have the possibility to ponder how communicative and social conventions regarding comics and games can be uncovered and even challenged.
