"Zug" has many more meanings than just those two, and so does "draw."
I wouldn't restrict the pairing "draw - Zug" to board games only. For example, a chimney or flue draws
, so you could speak of its draw as a noun. Seems Zug is one word you can use for that in German. According to Duden, a Zug can be: 8b nach außen, zum Schornstein führender Luftzug im Ofen
And what I'd call a drag
on a cigarette (also Zug
in German) is also known by Merriam-Webster as a draw
: 1a : a sucking pull on something held with the lips (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/dra...
). This kind of draw
can also work in the sense of swallow or gulp (also draught, draft, swig, pull). Think of a kräftiger Zug from a bottle of beer.
