An opponent will be waiting for you when you arrive at the board game. Approach the game to start it in Remnant 2, and it’s your move. There’s also a book to the right of the board game that explains the rules, but there’s a good amount of reading. The short answer is that your goal is to get three of your pieces in a row before your opponent does.

When you arrive at the board, each player has three pieces. Your three are in the middle, bottom middle, and right middle. The quickest way I’ve found to reach the final solution in my Remnant 2 playthrough is to move the middle piece up and then wait for my opponent.

After doing that, I move the bottom middle piece to the left, let the opponent go, and then move that piece up once. The game should look like the picture below, with one piece in the left middle, one in the top middle slot, and the one in the right middle should never have moved.

Now, all you have to do is move the top middle piece down back to its original spot where you started the game to complete it. It is important to note that the opponent has changed up the order of their moves, so it might not reflect the exact game we played, but this solution worked out extremely well for me, and I was able to win.

The reward for completing this puzzle is the Royal Hunting Bow, a long gun you can use for the rest of your Remnant 2 playthrough and future ones with this character. This board game is also tied to opening locked doors around Postulant’s Parlor. You’ll want to replay the board game again to access some of the hidden rooms around the area.
