An Analysis of Indie Board Games and What Makes Them Popular
There are quite a number of board games out there (some entertaining and some a headache). However, we see indie games pop up all of the time. There are even hobby shops dedicated to selling and introducing board games to their general area. Interestingly enough, these games do not seem to have the same media presence that more commercial board games enjoy (anything by Hasbro, for example), yet some games have become incredibly popular. Why is this? What makes them so much fun to pick up and play? Is this all handled by enthusiastic tabletop gamers who make it their only mission to bless the world with the games that they love?
It is worth exploring the indie board game world as a whole and it is worth looking at what makes them popular, despite their powerful competition.
Maybe this topic is just one more enthusiastic tabletop gamer’s attempt to bless the world with indie board games.
