Tag synonyms are tags that mean exactly the same thing as another tag. They exist to group variations together.

On the Board & Card Games Stack Exchange, you need to have 1,250 reputation in order to suggest tag synonyms. Additionally, you must have a score of at least 5 in the master tag in order to suggest another tag to become a synonym of it.

Once suggested, all users with a score of at least 5 in the tag (regardless of reputation) can vote for those suggestions. Synonym suggestions are automatically approved once they reach a vote of +4, and are automatically rejected once they reach a vote of -2.

Additionally, moderators can create tag synonyms as needed and have their suggestions instantly approved. They are the only ones who can remove tag synonyms.
