Knucklebones was a bi-monthly United States-based magazine, focused on providing news and reviews of board games and card games.[2] The magazine included some puzzles and contests, typically with a game-oriented theme, and also included puzzles such as Sudoku and crosswords. Its headquarters was in Iola, Wisconsin.[3]

Knucklebones won praise on the board game forum BoardGameGeek after they agreed to honour the subscriptions of former Games Quarterly Magazine subscribers.[4]

Knucklebones was published by Jones Publishing.[5][6]
