The Missing Board Game

A robbery just happened and they stole a game and left a mess behind. All four bookshelves fell with board games on them. The problem, however, is that all the games are mixed together and it is almost impossible to get them apart. Are you able to sort all the board games and find the missing one?

Immediately you see what happened to the bookshelves and that the mess is not really a mess, but more of a neat mess. It namely has a few rules applied to it, to get every board game restored. Each bookshelf is labelled as Floor plus a number from one till four. All board games can be found horizontally, vertically or diagonally, which can be read from left to right as well as from right to left. In addition, you start with the letters at Floor 1 and replace each letter that has been taken by the board.  For example, if you take out the word ‘TRACE’ at Floor 1, those letters are being replaced by ‘CSSTA’, which can be found at Floor 2. Repeating this process results in ending in Floor 4 eventually and thus creating spots without any letters left to use. At the end you will find a clue for the missing board game. Beside these rules, you also have a list of all the board games, which can be found beside the floors.
