My question is this;

Poll: Board game boards, what's your preference?
Do you prefer to play games that use:
1) A regular static board (such as Monopoly or Ticket to Ride)
2) A modular board (such as Castle Ravenloft or Memoir '44)
3) No board at all (such as Dominion)

A modular board is enough to make me want to give a game a few more seconds of consideration to browse the other features.

Modular and if a game has a static board, but offers other boards via the base game, expansions, and PnP, then that raises it in my book as well. It's interesting to see the list of games I have and the lack of ones that are truly static.

When asking "What would Jesus do?", remember that flipping over tables and using a whip are within the realm of possibilities.

I looked my top 10, and 6 of them have a static board, 3 had expansions and/or modular boards, and 1 has no board.

So I voted static.

Impossible to say, really. The game dictates the type of board (or lack thereof), and it's the game I like or don't.

"Board game boards, what's your preference?"

My preference is for card games but with board games I strongly prefer modular boards.


This would also be interesting if it broke down boards between shapes, size, number of folds, and number of pieces. With static boards I prefer ones that are put together in a jigsaw puzzle and that come in a small box like Aton.

I play a lot of wargames where modular boards would make no sense.
