I can't decide. On one hand, games like Ticket to Ride and Power Grid make me love having a board. But then games like Bohnanza and For Sale make me question my preference. Good question.

Definitely with a board. But that doesn't mean I'd turn down playing a good game that doesn't have one.

It depends on the game.

I'd prefer a board with most games and it depends on the card game some card games would be better if they had some sort of board.

I am on the fence with that one.
So I figured I'd look up my top 10 games and use that as the measure.

I was surprised to find out the results were split 5 to 5!
I guess I must look into this deeper.

I have a friend who always pulls the entire board toward her instead of reaching across it. When playing with her I prefer a game without a board.

Is it a board game without a board?

Serious answer, I don't really mind.

Scratches head. Can you give me an example of a board game with no board?

Carcassonne

For me it depends on the game. As that option is not there I can't vote.

Meuterer

Since so many games have a board, I kind of like ones that don't have a proper board, just as a change of pace.
It's always interesting to see how the designer uses other components to create a play surface.

Without, as I also prefer my wargames without war.

Hey, that should be a poll..."Would you play wargames if...there was no war?"

I like my games portable, the kind that can be packed up and played in a coffeehouse without much bother. So as much as I love, say, Endeavor or Pandemic, I'll probably never buy them for that very reason. But my copy of Chrononauts, Race for the Galaxy and Archaeology get tons of play.

So you would consider that the players create a board with the tiles? This would be somewhat akin to Twilight Imperium or Kings n' Things.

I consider Carcassone a light filler game. If this is an example, I definitely prefer games with "boards".

And this would be considered a board game rather than a card game because?

I've never heard of Meuterer but it looks like a card game ala Race of the Galaxy, Dominion, Magic the Gathering, etc. What makes Meuterer anything but a card game?
