A table-top game, famously known as the board game involves counters or pieces that move on a pre-marked surface, according to the rules of the game. Games usually possess a goal that a player tries to achieve. Ancient board games depicted a battle between two armies, and the contemporary board games are still based on winning against the competitors in terms of counters, winning the position, or accrual of points.
There are numerous varieties of board games available in the market. Their representation of real-life events can range from having no intrinsic theme, like checkers, to having a specific narrative and theme, like Cluedo. Rules of the game can range from the very easy, like Tic-tac-toe, to those describing a game in great detail, like Dragons & Dungeons, although most of them are role-playing games where the board is auxiliary to the game, serving to help visualize the game scenario.
The time required to learn the rules of the game or to master a game differs greatly from game to game but is actually not correlated with the complexity or number of rules. For example, games like chess and business have simple rules but have intense strategic depth.
