So what makes up a board game, exactly? Well, board games are usually made from... you guessed it--boards! These types of games make use of pieces that may be moved or placed on a pre-marked playing area. Most include a competition between two or more players (sometimes many more) and frequently incorporate aspects of table, card, role-playing, and miniatures into the games.
Of course, all types of board games offer something different. Board games range in complexity from your basic Snakes and Ladders to something more complicated like Cluedo. The time necessary to learn or master a board game varies tremendously depending on the game. Chess and Go are two examples of games with very basic rules, but both provide a lot of deep, strategic complexity.
