A board game is a game in which counters or pieces are placed, removed, or moved on a premarked surface or "board" according to a set of rules.
Board games may be based on pure strategy, chance or a mixture of the two and usually have a goal which a player aims to achieve. Early games represented a battle between two armies and most current ones are still based on beating opposing players in terms of counters, winning position or accrual of points.
There are many different types and styles of board games. Their representation of a real life situation can range from having no inherent theme, such as Draughts, to having a specific theme and narrative like Snakes and Ladders.
