Default Boardgames... based on computer games

I was browsing the contents at Board Game Geek, remembered a few similar things and though it would be a good idea to bring attention to some of them.

Doom: The Boardgame

Deckmatch (Quake)

Fallout: Warfare

Fallout:Paper & Pencil Get it, read it... it's awesome.

X-Com:Tactical

Starcraft: The Board Game

Starcraft: Spawn The cards could be improved... ...but the overall idea is nice.

Halo: The Strategy Game

Warcraft: The Boardgame

And (dis)honorable mention...
Simcity: The card game Apparently broken... pity. I remember a card game with similar general idea. That was just plain addictive.


Do you know of any interesting video-game-based boardgames? Or perhaps have the idea to make one? Post here!

There's also the Starcraft board game.

Isn't X-COM based on a board game? Hmm...Boardgame based on a PC game based on a boardgame....My head hurts now...

There's the video game versions of Axis & Allies. I use that in my class. The kids play the "real" version in class, but I let them try out moves using the computer version.

This thread is about board games based on video games, not the other way round.

Some of these look great haha... but I love how graphics are going too much to play these. |3

I'm spoiled by modern technology. *sigh*





I could really just go for some D&D.
