I thought it would be a handy idea to complete a geeklist on boardgames directly based off computer games. and then look at how successful this port was for the cardboard world.

Hope you enjoy my first list. Feel free to add more!

#note# I could stay here all day populating this list by myself, but that takes away the fun!

The idea behind this list.
No punches pulled here - same graphics, everything from the game.

This game proved popular enough to warrant a sequel

Popularity wise, this weighs in at a average score of 7 and is ranked 90 in the thematic games.

Another straight port. But now we are getting to big players.

Sid Meier's civ has been a major part of gaming for years with multiple versions released.

Civilization has one expansion to date.

Rating wise, BGG records a average score of 7.8. In the rating stakes, civ rates in as the 37th board game and 29th strategy game.

Have not played, but those scores certainly show this has been a massively successful port to cardboard

There are four distinct final fantasy games on the BGG list. To keep this list within order, I only listed one.

Triple Triad possesses the most voters for a average rating of 8.2. No rank has been claimed as yet by this game.

A game based off the computer game, based off the book.

Due to this game using all the game graphics, I was happy to allow it qualify for the list.

A woeful average score of 5. I think a majority of the 41 owners would have gotten this with their PC game

No pretense here. We are seeing a collaboration #cough# sellout #cough# between two massive games.

BGG didn't appreciate the effort awarding this a average score of 5.3. 169 owners is surprising though

Based off Starcraft (the first one). Does quite a few things differently and manages to be a great board game despite its video game roots - "despite" because many of the video game counterpart's mechanisms wouldn't work at all in board game form.

This game is very loosely based on the Space Empires video game series. Shares some graphics, and fundamental thematic similarities, though not many mechanisms, I'm told. Never played the video games.

This is based on a non-existing beat-em-up video game called "Fantasy Strike" (yes, I'm serious). It is also rather loosely based on Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo. And plays very similar as and yet completely different from Dominion.
