A board game was developed with the aim of providing veterinary students a new means of associating radiographic findings with relevant differential diagnoses. This board game required students to correctly match disease processes to radiographic patterns that they may produce. When surveyed, 100 % (101/101) of students responded that they enjoyed the game, 98.0 % (99/101) indicated that their knowledge of thoracic differential diagnoses improved, and 99.0 % (100/101) answered that playing the game was a worthwhile activity. Thus, educational board games can be used as an adjunct to traditional methods of clinical teaching and may improve students’ engagement in their learning.
