Board games have seen a renaissance recently, with many games converting popular video games into board games to enjoy with your friends. Digital gaming is all fine and good, but nothing beats the feeling of spending a few hours enjoying real life more than digital life with your best friends. When looking for a board game, you must pay attention to certain things that can make or break a board game (excluding flipping the table in rage). A strong theme does not always guarantee a great experience. One must also consider the build quality of the product, because if you really love a board game, you want it to last for a long time. So, to help make your task easier, we have listed some of the best board games based on popular video games.
