Models built for the 'Games' Secretary's Challenge

The Challenge:

This Challenge is one from Cathy Warrell. It is to build a board game or similar in Meccano - or using as much Meccano as you can without resorting to cardboard or paper.

The game can be one that already exists or you can invent your own.
