Top 10 Board Game-Based Video Games

This list is about video games simulating board games, card games and casino games, not the other way around.

The Top Ten

1 42 All-time Classics

You've got card games (Poker, Texas Hold'em, Solitaire, Hearts), board games (Chess, Checkers, Chinese Checkers), other types of games (Mahjong, Dominoes) and some that aren't even board games (Bowling, Pool, Darts). This game is a DS must-have! - FernandoLemon

2 Super Solitaire

Not only Klondike solitaire. 12 DIFFERENT SOLITAIRE MODES! Klondike, Golf, Poker, Cruel and Freecell just to name a few. - FernandoLemon

3 Tiles of Fate

This game is a unlicensed hidden gem fo the NES. While it doesn't represent Mahjong very well, this puzzle game is epic! Sure, it gets hard as nails at the last levels; but it doesn't lose it's charm. - FernandoLemon

4 Archon: The Light and the Dark

Basically, this game is chess, but with monsters, combats, time and other small changes. It's hard to explain, so I recommend you look it up. - FernandoLemon

5 Vegas Stakes


A casino simulator. What I really like is that the AI doesn't feel robotic. They look like actual people! Instead of saying "Fold", they say things like "You're going too fast. I fold." - FernandoLemon

6 A Team for the Job

In this game, you must play at least one card of each type. Sounds easy? It's not. Each card has an effect that allows you do something different. It's more fun than it sounds. - FernandoLemon

In this game you must play at least one card of each type. Sounds easy? It's not. Each card has a special effect that may cause you trouble, from unabling you to take a card to destroying a card that has been played. - FernandoLemon

7 Monopoly

Most likely to become played. - playstationfan66

8 Pictionary

A wildly popular game where you guess the thing that is shown on your television screen as you use the uDraw gametablet to draw it. There are 2 different versions of the game for 4 systems (Wii, DS, Xbox 360 and PS3). - playstationfan66

9 Clue

When the real name is Cluedo!

10 Hasbro Family Game Night

This game needs a major reboot with the following board games made just for girls including Girl Talk Date Line (which is my #1 favorite). - shelleyduvallfan10

The Contenders

11 Battleship

Actually, this is a video game based on some movie of the same name which is based on some board game of the same name. - monsterhigh200

12 Tower Dream

This game is very good. The problem, however, is that this game was only released in Japanese; and there's no translation patch. - FernandoLemon

13 Bible Buffet

It's playable but it has a lot of problems. It's a Candy Land ripoff, it has nothing to do with the bible, there's quizes you can't answer because the questions aren't in-game, and it's more fun in multiplayer (if you find someone to play this). - FernandoLemon

14 Girl Talk - the Game of Truth or Dare

Perfect for sleepovers. Requires Windows 95/98 (Compatible with Windows XP). Capable on 64-bit versions of Windows (including Windows 8) (if 16-bit mode is turned on). - playstationfan66

15 Trivial Pursuit: Unhinged

That is a Xbox game. - playstationfan66

16 Trivial Pursuit
17 Super Battleship
18 Scene It? Twilight
19 Scene It?
20 Super Scrabble
