Since the 90s there's been a major revival of boardgames, and sites like [[http://boardgamegeek.com boardgamegeek]] (which lists all existing games - yes, ''all of them'') have many hundreds of thousands of members. Not to mention game conferences like Spiel (in Essen, Germany), which draws 150,000 people each year. Also, recent board games [[PinkProductPloy have been colored pink]] hoping more girls would buy them. In addition, the board game cafe, a social business that encourages playing such games, are a growing business class.

Classic games of skill and chance, often used in fiction to illuminate characters' personalities. There are many board games, but those listed in this index are pretty much the only [[SmallReferencePools ones you will see in fiction]]. Often, the trademarked ones will have an in-world BrandX equivalent. In the last decade, [[http://www.piecepack.org/ piecepacks]] have become popular as a means of devising new board games.
