Game Groups > Hybrid board / computer games

Games 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).

Limitations: * Not to be confused with Board game translations group. * Not to be confused with Board / Party Game genre. * Many other games included extra printed material important for gameplay as an addition to standard manual. Some special editions are packed with collectors' items, such as figures. These games do not qualify.
