Board game types explained: a beginner’s guide to tabletop gaming terms

Getting into tabletop gaming as a beginner can be a challenge. From knowing the best board games, working out what to buy first and finding others interested in playing them with you, through to understanding the conversation when you meet these peers, there are all sorts of potential barriers to even the friendliest of pastimes.

Board gaming, as one of humanity’s oldest hobbies, can be one of the most welcoming activities around. You can start anywhere and with anyone – you can learn how to play D&D in a board games shop or café, crack out a party board game down the pub, learn how to play Magic: The Gathering with an established club, or simply enjoy playing around the kitchen table with your friends or even all by yourself thanks to the growing number of solo games.
