Hybrid board / computer games
Group DescriptionGames which require real (physical) items, such as boards (maps) with counters/tokens/figures or cards, to conduct gameplay. These are usually included with game package.
Many early strategy games were of this dual nature, as the simple computers couldn't display complex graphical maps on the screen. Players moved their armies on the board, the computer program served as result calculator (sometimes also as AI opponent).
