Board Games

Tabletop board games, card games and more reviewed and examined.

A board game is a tabletop game that involves counters or pieces moved or placed on a pre-marked surface or “board”, according to a set of rules. Some games are based on pure strategy, but many contain an element of chance; and some are purely chance, with no element of skill.

Games usually have a goal that a player aims to achieve. Early board games represented a battle between two armies, and most modern boardgames are still based on defeating opposing players in terms of counters, winning position, or accrual of points.
