Although board games with RPGElements go way back to TheEighties, TheNewTens in particular saw a growing number of "tabletop-[=RPGs=]-in-a-box": tabletop games that replicate the DungeonCrawling and storytelling aspects of pen-and-paper [=RPGs=], while also cutting down on the LoadsAndLoadsOfRules (which usually scare new players away from regular RP) and making them easier to keep track of with things like illustrated ability cards and themed dice. TheOtherWiki calls this genre [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adventure_board_game "adventure board games"]].

* ''TabletopGame/ArkhamHorror'' (1987) was the board game counterpart to the ''TabletopGame/CallOfCthulhu'' RPG.
* ''TabletopGame/BetrayalAtHouseOnTheHill'' (2004)
* ''TabletopGame/DescentJourneysInTheDark'' (2005) may have been the GenrePopularizer, in particular its second edition (2012), which was followed by an [[FollowTheLeader explosion of new dungeon crawling board games]].
* ''Dungeon!'' (1975) was the UrExample of the genre, released by TSR as a board game companion to ''Dungeons & Dragons'', the ur-RPG.
* ''Folklore: The Afflicted'' (TBR 2016)
* ''TabletopGame/HeroQuest'' (1989) was probably the [[TropeCodifier Genre Codifier]] for board games with RPGElements. It was expanded with ''Advanced [=HeroQuest=]'' (1989) and succeeded by ''Warhammer Quest'' (1995).
* ''Legends of Andor'' (2013)
* ''TabletopGame/{{Talisman}}'' (1983)
* ''TabletopGame/MiceAndMystics'' (2012)
* ''Relic'' (2013) was the ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' counterpart to ''Talisman''.
* ''TabletopGame/ShadowsOverCamelot'' (2005)
* ''Space Crusade'' (1990) was the ''[=WH40K=]'' counterpart to the ''TabletopGame/WarhammerFantasy''-based ''[=HeroQuest=]''.

These tabletop [=RPGs=] [[MoralGuardians get a lot of flak from society]] -- usually due to misinformation or simply misunderstanding. Common myths include that roleplaying games lead to devil worship, that players (and not their fictional personae) carry out magical spells, and that players actually ''become'' their characters[[note]]which isn't so farfetched; roleplaying games and mental instabilities do not mix well, and some unstable players ''have'' 'lost themselves' in the game, though the stories that are commonly spread are largely apocryphal[[/note]]. Inexplicably, the stigma remains even after ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' and its ilk have made it seem almost normal for the guy at the water cooler to ''insist'' on telling you about his elf.
