What should a board game include?
Board games often have tokens or avatars that represent the player. For example, the racing car or the hat tokens in Monopoly, and tokens used to represent a player's position in Snakes and Ladders. As a general rule, board games can be divided into three categories: war games, race games and alignment games.
What makes a successful board game?
In my opinion, a good board game is one that allows you and the people you are playing with to have a great experience together, as a group. Something you can talk about, make jokes over, comment on, and remember those good moments.
