## GameboardsThere are various Geeklists that try to seriously characterize games by what type of gameboard the game uses. Innumerable whimsical lists have been avoided. See Also:
- ## Circular GameboardsGameboards which are a circle, or could easily be rearranged into a circle without affecting play. - Gameboards on the circumference of a circle
- Gameboards with concentric circles of playing positions.
## N x N CheckerboardFor this series of boards only half, the dark squares, or the NxN checkerboard are used so there are (N^2)/2 spaces on which to play men on an even board, (N^2+1)/2 on an odd board. - less than 8x8 checkerboard
- 8X8 Checkerboard Grid (32 of 64 squares)
- greater than 8x8 board -
## N x N Square gridFor this set of games the game should be played in the cell of NxN grid. The overall complexity of the game depends on the number of men, and the overall size of the board which determines the number of playing positions. While perhaps somewhat confusing at first, games should be considered as if they were played in the cells rather than on the points. This can no doubt be a controversial issue, but the idea is to keep games of the same general complexity together. It doesn’t matter much for large gameboards, but for small gameboards the issue is significant. - 2x2 Grid

- 16x16 Grid
- 17x17 Grid
- 18x18 Grid
- 19x19 Grid Go Board (1)
- 20x20 Grid or larger — there seem to be two lists: brettie's, herace's
(1) The standard Go Board is 18x18 cells, but Go is played on the points of the grid, so it is equivalent to a 19x19 placement grid. ## 1 x N Grid## N x (N+k) Grid## (j*N) x (k*N) Grid- Games played on a 2:1 aspect grid
- Games played on a 3:2 aspect grid
- Games played on a 4:3 aspect grid

## Triangular BoardThis may need to be split by board size if a lot of entries are obtained. ## Hexagonal Board divided into TrianglesFor this set of games the game should be played in the cell of the triangle and not on the points (which would be equivalent to playing in hexagons). - All Sizes http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/26682
