The Board Game tag is used to describe video games that are based on or inspired by traditional board games.

In the context of video games, a board game typically refers to a game that involves moving pieces or tokens on a virtual board according to specific rules and objectives. These games often require strategic thinking, decision-making, and sometimes luck. They can be played with friends, family, or against AI opponents.

Board games have been adapted into video game form to provide players with the convenience of digital gameplay while retaining the essence of tabletop gaming. Some key characteristics of board game-inspired video games include:

  • Tactical Gameplay Board game video adaptations often emphasize tactical decision-making and strategic planning. Players must carefully navigate the mechanics and rules of the game in order to outsmart opponents or achieve specific objectives.
  • Turn-Based Mechanics Many board game-inspired video games utilize turn-based gameplay where each player takes their turns sequentially. This allows for thoughtful planning and consideration before making moves.
  • Mechanical Depth Board game adaptations tend to be mechanically rich with rule sets that involve multiple interconnected systems. This complexity offers depth and replayability, providing players with new challenges each time they play.
    • Examples of popular board-game-inspired titles on Steam include:

      • Terraforming Mars:A digital adaptation of the popular strategy board game where players compete as corporations working to make Mars habitable by raising temperature levels, managing resources, controlling territory, etc.
      • Catan Universe:A digital version of the classic German board game, Settlers of Catan, where players engage in resource management, trading, and building settlements to dominate the island of Catan.
      • Tabletop Simulator:While not a specific board game adaptation itself, Tabletop Simulator provides a platform for playing countless tabletop games digitally. It allows players to simulate physical board games and create their own custom experiences.

      Overall, board game video adaptations offer players the opportunity to enjoy strategic gameplay with friends or AI opponents without the need for physical components or setup. They provide a convenient way to experience well-known board games or discover new ones within a digital space.
