#Board Games


Bloodborne photo

Bloodborne as a card game, huh?

My first reaction to hearing that a popular video game is being adapted into a board game is usually skepticism, but in this case, I'm more curious than anything else. Designer Eric Lang (Blood Rage) took to Twitter this week to announce hi...

 
 
Superfight for PC photo

Superfight is coming to Steam

Superfight is one of those things I instinctively sneered at the first time I heard about it, only to be proven dead wrong. The game is a mix between Cards Against Humanity and every embarrassing cafeteria nerd argument you ever had in high...

 
 
Tsuro iOS photo

Casual dragon board game Tsuro out on iOS now

Tsuro is the type of game that hits the table during parties at the ol' Casa de Nakamura. It caters to people who aren't especially experienced with modern board games, it doesn't take up a lot of table space, and it seats up to eight at a ...

Tharsis Review photo

Review: Tharsis

Space is dangerous, everyone. If you weren't aware of this, just play Tharsis. If you wanna feel sad and hopeless, just play Tharsis. If you're known for always getting great dice rolls at tabletop night, definitely play Tharsis. Digital bo...

The Mega Man Board Game is finally coming soon

I backed the Mega Man Board Game Kickstarter at its lowest level nearly two years ago, and now, it's finally ready to ship. Jasco games has announced that the final editions of the game will arrive in their warehouses today, at which point,...

Review: Animal Crossing amiibo Festival

Earlier this year, Animal Crossing series director Aya Kyogoku was asked why she decided to make Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival. She said it was because the team thought amiibo were cute and really wanted an Animal Crossing version of the...

 
 
This War of Mine photo

This War of Mine is getting a board game

This War of Mine can be a pretty heavy game, but 11 bit studios has a lighter sight in mind -- a board game adaptation. It will sport a companion app, and the creator notes that it will support up to six players with easy to follow rul...

 
 
Ghostbusters photo

The Ghostbusters board game is like a mini Arkham Horror

Every so often we cover board games here at Destructoid, mostly from our tabletop expert Darren Nakamura. But when the opportunity presented itself to check out the brand new Ghostbusters game, I sprang at the chance. Hailed as one of ...

 
 
 
The Banner Saga: Warbands photo

The Banner Saga getting a cooperative tabletop miniature game

Stoic released The Banner Saga last year, and it was a great strategy role-playing game. It had characters on a square grid, drama, and lots of death. Basically, it was ripe for conversion to a board game. Today at GenCon, Stoic and its par...

Mega Man board game team doing a Street Fighter one

After an exciting EVO weekend of fighting game intensity, I guess it's a good time to announce a much more boring version of that? Jasco Games, the company behind the official Mega Man board game, has partnered with Capcom again, securing t...

 
 
Halo: Fleet Battles photo

Tabletop wargame Halo: Fleet Battles available now

Man, look at those dice. There's some explosions, there's a "no" symbol, and there's the iconic Halo skull. I don't know exactly how Halo: Fleet Battles plays, but I do love me some custom dice. Halo: Fleet Battles is based off the Planetfa...

Wild speculation commence: Capcom hires new Mega Man producer

According to the folks over at the Mega Man Board Game Kickstarter, Capcom now has a new producer for the Mega Man franchise. This bit of information came to light casually when talking about approved designs, a process that has delayed the...

 
 
Crysis: Analogue Edition photo

Haha sure: Crysis board game on Kickstarter

Crysis Analogue Edition - The Board Game. Huh. Okay. I have been pleasantly surprised in the past with video game shooters turned into tactical board games, but I'm still a bit skeptical about this one. I mean, Crysis's biggest claim to fa...

 
 
Orcs Must Die! board game photo

Orcs Must Die! takes tower defense to the tabletop arena

Humble Weekly Bundle photo

This Humble Weekly Bundle is all about board games

We don't often highlight the Humble Weekly Bundle these days (more like Humble Weekly Burnedout, right?), but I couldn't let this one go unnoticed. Just in time for International Tabletop Day, this week it's all about videogame adaptations ...

 
 
Mega Man Board game photo

It looks like the Mega Man board game is nearly done

It sure looks like a lot of work to create a licensed board game. After its announcement and Kickstarter campaign in July of 2013, the creators of the Mega Man Board Game are nearly finished, barring some final approvals from Capcom. Visual...

 
 
Risk review photo

Review: Risk

Typically, board games involving just dice aren't my thing. I don't like playing a game in which I feel I have no control in whether I win or lose. Yahtzee is a prime example of this, while Risk is somewhere in between. Much like Monopoly, ...

 
 
Coup photo

Popular bluffing card game Coup will be a videogame soon

When people talk about good games to ease newbies into board games, The Resistance is one that gets brought up often. Heck, we have even played a few games of it on our forums. It took the hidden team aspect of Werewolf, trashed the player...

 
 
 
Evolution review photo

Board Game Review: Evolution

[Note: We've been known to do board game reviews from time to time, and although this one isn't exactly based on E.V.O.: Search for Eden on the SNES, it's close enough. Happy New Year! --Chris Carter] Two things that define my tastes m...

 
 
Deck building photo

So what exactly is a deck-building game anyway?

A number of videogames have shown up lately with the gameplay adjective "deck-building" in their descriptions. Steve Swink took a break from developing Scale in order to release Dad's Building a Deck. Coin Crypt rel...

Thinking about ultrawide stuff Feels like more of a game changer than 4K But it seems more practical to get a 16:9 screen then letterbox to 21:9 than buy an actual 21:9 And you could do it with a big 4K best of both worlds?
