A board game is a game played with counters or pieces that are placed on, removed from, or moved across a "board" (a premarked surface, usually specific to that game). Simple board games often make ideal "family entertainment" since they are often appropriate for all ages. Some board games, such as chess, go/weiqi, xiangqi, shogi, or oware, have intense strategic value and have been classics for centuries.
Bridge is by far the greatest card game of all, and it can provide immense challenge and enjoyment for the rest of your life.
Bridge is more complicated than other card games, and beginners are sometimes discouraged by this.
