The best games with Play Dough / Modeling Clay 2021

Looking for a game where you can live out your creativity with clay? We have picked out the 16 best modeling clay games for you.

What are modeling clay games?

For us, clay games are social games (including expansions, promos, etc.) in which clay is used in the game. And that means real clay as a component of the game or game principle, not just pictures or the theme of clay or kneading. Most people will be familiar with Cranium, but there are many great game concepts that incorporate modeling clay as a central game element (e.g. Dohdles! or Barbarosse).
