So, here's a list of computer versions of board and card games. We're only counting fairly direct adaptions, for the sake of our sanity. Please note quality, if you know.

*inhale* Here we go:

  • Talisman: Digital Edition: Fairly good adaption of the Fantasy Flight version of Talisman.
  • Ticket to Ride
  • Through the Ages
  • Carcassonne
  • Magic: The Gathering: Many versions. Some of them good, some of them bad.
    • Microprose's version is of interest mainly for having Sid Meier work on it and having a solid enough single player campaign.
    • Various versions published by Wizards of the Coast.
  • Space Hulk: Various versions over the years; be cautious, as this one is particularly prone to having the games be an adaption of the concept of Space Hulk, rather then the board game.
  • Various wargames in the 80s and early 90s were prone to having a computer adaption, in order to cut down on the paperwork. Many were published by SSI, but many more were effectively just Shareware.

Pure Ameritrash with limited redeeming value goes here; most of these have multiple versions, so we're just rattling them off here for completeness sake:

  • Battleship
  • Clue/Cluedo
  • Life
  • Monopoly has a lot of versions, most of them exactly as shit as the board game, but some of them are somehow worse, impossible as that sounds.
  • Risk
  • Scrabble
  • Uno

Just about every popular public domain board game has plenty of versions floating around.

  • Chess: MANY versions. Since about 2005, the best of them are consistently able to beat the best human players.
