The Rock makes every board game better

Charlie Hall is Polygon’s tabletop editor. In 10-plus years as a journalist & photographer, he has covered simulation, strategy, and spacefaring games, as well as public policy.

We all know Dwayne Johnson is a skilled wrestler and an acclaimed thespian. But have you heard that he can ride a sandworm?

Were you aware of his natural ability to leverage capital and influence markets?

Did you know that, in addition to having Samoan heritage, his First Nations ancestors once fought the French in Canada?

Yes, Dwayne Johnson is an American treasure as Esquire so aptly put it. He's also a great inspiration to the tabletop fans at Board Game Geek, which not only maintains the most well-stocked library of information on tabletop games anywhere, but is also blessed with a fantastic community. Since June they've been ginning up Johnson-inspired board game covers. Her are a few of our favorites. You can expand our galleries with the icon in the upper right-hand corner.
