Most board game enthusiasts agree that the best way to describe a board game is a mix of luck, skill, and chance. A great many board games share this description. Many of the best board games we play today are played using at least a basic version of a traditional board game. The most notable exception to this would be, of course, the classic, Monopoly. Despite the title, Monopoly was created as a commercial board game, which is to say that it was designed for mass production. Board games come in a wide variety of styles, and almost all of them have something to offer to their fans.

One of the earliest forms of board game came about in medieval times and involves dice. The name for this dice game is, of course, "Camel Cup." Camel Cup are played with four persons, each trying to steal the property of the other in a bid to become the first player to arrive at a certain destination without being stolen by another player. The catch is that if any of the four persons get to the final destination before the others do, they must stay there until another player arrives.

Another early game that uses dice, as well as a board, is Carcassonne. If you do a simple search online, you'll find plenty of board game fans who consider Carcassonne to be the best of the three. Some will claim it's the best, arguing that few games have as many players as Carcassonne, and those who played it in its heyday probably did have a good time. Others will cite the lack of luck involved in the game as a reason that they think it lacks the appeal of more modern games like, for example, Cayce.

There is, however, one thing that all board games have in common: each player receives four tiles each, and these tiles have a face value in addition to their ability to be moved. Additionally, each player receives two cards, one for each player, representing different kinds of monsters. These cards can be used to deal additional dice to players, giving them the opportunity to deal more dice. At the same time, each player receives two cards, one for each player, representing different kinds of monsters, and these cards can be used to deal additional dice to the player, giving them the opportunity to deal more dice.

All of these things combine to make a game that can be both complex and dynamic, but also very easy to teach and to learn.

Early board games often had miniatures, and these are still a feature of some of the best board games on the market. Early versions of Munchkin and Lascar were particularly fond of the miniatures, and while they tended to have a rather limited life span due to wear and tear, they still managed to capture the imagination of many. At the same time, though, these early editions of Munchkin and Lascar did not use any kind of dice or card values. The players had to guess at the values of the cards, and if the cards ended up being worth more than the actual values on the board, the players lost. (It was later discovered that Lascar had a system based on real-life card values, which made the game significantly more sophisticated and enjoyable.)

By contrast, the earliest Monopoly was almost entirely based on luck. Although players have some degree of control over the overall outcome of the game through the use of the cards they receive and through their management of property and funds. A Monopoly player may purchase properties and build up his or her empire, but may lose money if the value of the currency drops enough to cause the loan balance to fall below zero. Successful players of this type of board game rely on their strategy and ability to foresee which combinations of investments, location, and tactics will produce the results they want.

While many forms of miniatures can be used to play board games, none of them have the permanence of the plastic miniatures found in most editions of Monopoly. For this reason, it is unlikely that a board gamer who desires to emulate a certain theme will choose a miniatures format for their game that includes plastic figurines. On the other hand, just about every aspect of the board game lends itself easily to the use of miniatures. Almost every aspect of board gaming lends itself to the production of board game accessories, which includes, among other things, miniatures. Almost every aspect of board gaming lends itself easily to the production of custom board games' components. Almost every aspect of board gaming lends itself to the production of custom miniature figures.

One aspect of the production of miniatures that lends itself to the production of custom miniature board game accessories is the simple fact that miniatures come in an infinite variety of shapes, sizes, and configurations. In the early days of the hobby, people produced their miniature heroes using a limited number of paint formulations. As the hobby has developed, so too has the range of paints that can be used to paint miniatures. There are acrylic paints that will not leave a streak on the tabletop, there are specialty paints that can be used to create effects not possible with standard paintbrushes, and there are even paint formulas that can be used to create special effects not possible with acrylic paints. In addition, most miniature board game accessories, from game pieces to pawns and from game boards to chairs and table clocks, can be created and produced by the use of miniatures.
