About the wiki
This is a wiki about board games, tabletop games, card games, and other sorts of physical games.

Our goal is to make this the premier web encyclopedia for board games, whether it is checking out a basic premise for any particular board game in wiki format (especially ones that do not have Wikipedia articles), or for diving in through in-depth information of a particular board game without the need to wait for PDFs to load or to open a physical rulebook. In other words, we want to make such information more accessible on the web.

This wiki can provide some rules, information, indices, and more across many sorts of board games, particularly ones that that do not have wikis yet (which are the simpler or less popular ones) or those that cannot easily warrant a separate wiki.
