Okay, so I'm a big fan of fighting games on PC and consoles but until recently I'd never considered the idea of fighting games in a tabletop medium. After trying a few and enjoying them, I have decided to make a list. I want it to be as comprehensive as possible so if you know of a game I haven't included please add it!

Criteria for being a fighting game?
- Generally involves 1v1 combat (Tag teams are allowed)
- Victory attained through direct defeat of your opponent
- Preferably uses fighting game style moves/gameplay E.G. Combos, Throws, Stuns and Super/special moves.

One of the inspirations for this list! Battlecon tries to go for the videogame fighter style gameplay a lot. This one was the first of two base sets.

Whilst technically the same system as Battlecon: War, I feel this game adds enough to get its own entry. A massive roster of unique characters and solo play are just a few of the reasons to play this version over War. Really fleshed the game out.

Yomi is designed by a Street Fighter II pro so naturally you'd expect it to convey the "fighting game" feel quite well! I have to say I think this game is amazing. It has a large focus on mindgames in strategy and it feels really fun, the games rules are quite simple but it's still very engaging. I can't wait for all the characters to be released.

This is just one of many UFS sets but I'm using it because I like Megaman. UFS is a TCG about fighting and it has some interesting ideas, like allowing you to make your own decks for each character. UFS has little in common with the others on this list but it's still great.

I've not played this game but I'm including it as to give people an idea of the kind of games this list can include. I believe this game involves fencing-esque duels.

Boxing simulation from way back in the day. I think it was originally included in a magazine, probably Dragon.

Dice game simulating martial arts combat. Quick and fun but I'm not sure if still widely available. Lends itself well to league play.

Definitely a fight-game, though this was book-based. Each player chose a character, which had a pair of books -- one for that player to select maneuvers from, and one to show to the opponent what they saw. Each would simultaneously select a maneuver, then use a grid to determine the resulting pages in each book, whether damage was taken, etc.

I think there were something like 50 different characters you could fight with -- warriors, skeletons, dragons, goblins, etc.
