Board Game Arena has the classic games, but there are also surprisingly rich modern games to choose from.

The first thing to know is that the Board Game Arena does not have everything. For example, if you want to play Ticket to Ride or Settlers of Catan-to name two popular modern games-they don’t exist.

European games

We define “modern” as everything that has been around since 1990. when the rise of the so-called “European games” changed  and became a hobby for even the most casual enthusiasts.

The same Suitable for more obscure games like (my favorite) Fox in the Forest, most co-op games like pandemics, and more brainer and more complex games like Twilight Struggle, a cold war simulator.

Many of the games we just listed in the Board Game Arena review have dedicated digital applications on Steam, the mobile and PC game market.

You can play them electronically as needed. But these applications are generally not allowed to be played on the Internet, and you will purchase applications one by one.


The main advantage of Board Game is that it has a large number of games, 175, many of which are very famous modern games like:

  • Dune Board Game Arena
  • Carnegie Board Game Arena
  • patchwork Board Game Arena


Some of which are historical classics

  • Chess
  • Checkers
  • Board Game Arena poker
  • Backgammon

It also allows you to play with friends, as long as you know each other’s screen names. However, if you are not ready for friends waiting to play the game, the site will randomly select players from all over the world to fill your table based on your skill level and preferences. And it’s all free.

Board Game  is two-player games. For most people, this will be a solution, and they are looking for a way to play games online while away from the world. Even a voice chat function allows you to engage in spam or polite conversations while playing games.

But—this is a considerable “but”—the site usually stops working almost entirely during peak hours (usually the evening on the East Coast of the United States).

Best game

The influx of new players who joined what was once a very niche site has caused severe server pressure, and the site is struggling to keep up.

Players with subscriptions are preferred $24 per year for subscription; $4 per month for membership-during those peak periods, it is not uncommon for free players to not access the site at all.

However, even with the free version, there is a good stop for most Americans. The site’s peak hours roughly correspond to the prime time in Europe, so when you arrive here at night, you may be lucky to stay in touch and find a game to play.

If you can afford the subscription fee, we would recommend it wholeheartedly. The selection is excellent, the players are polite, and there is no better way to show my friends my performance at Yahtzee.
