Board game types:

  • Roll and move : the simplest type of game ever! You just have to roll dice, land on a space, and only chance determines the result of the game.
  • Simulation: Simulation board games put people into a “roleplay” situation, in which they have to simulate a process or a role.
  • Strategy: Strategy board games give players tools that they can use to manipulate the game either in their favor or their opponents disfavor. There are typically many different ways to win the game. For example, Disney Villainous is a light strategy game.
  • Resource Management : in these board games players usually compete with each other to gather resources or money, create, build, etc. At the end of the game, the player with the most resources wins. And there are usually many ways to win the game.
  • Cooperative: with cooperative board games , players attempt to complete a challenge together, instead of playing against each other. It is players trying to beat the game instead of trying to beat each other!
  • Abstract: These games typically have more to do with mathematics, shapes, geometry. Zenteeko falls under the category of abstract board games .
  • Card Based: with card based board games , players have a deck of cards and usually draw a set of cards randomly, or choose them, allowing players to do different things. Players will then play cards to their own benefit.
  • Family games: these games are usually designed to be enjoyed by all the family and multiple players, with a necessary element of luck to advance stages! Family board games like Pictionary are a fun and entertaining way to spend a rainy weekend at home!
