Board Games Making a Comeback: Zlurpcast Style
Board games have been overlooked for a very long time, but that isn't the case when it comes to Zlurpcast. There are plenty of board game connoisseurs left on Earth, and most (if not all) of them are gathered here to talk about their favorite games and the strategies surrounding them. When it comes to board games there is a sense of class about these quirky items, as they aren't produced with much quality these days.
Most of the people reading this will remember a period in their lives where board games took up an abundance of their time. Thinking back on it, whether it was a classic like “Life” or “Monopoly”, there was still a way to cheat the system (much like you would when using PUBG hacks or even Fortnite hacks).
While using a Fortnite hack might be a bit more complicated than cheating in a board game, they are both one in the same – cheating has been a part of local gaming for a very long time. The only difference is that the use of a PUBG hack calls for coding and many other things, while cheating within a board game just calls for wit and quick hands
What About the Likes of “Wargames”?
While you can't cheat that easily within wargames, it's still applicable – think of it like RUST hacks in a sense. Using a RUST hack will let you aim with perfection, but if you're still only using a spear, you're going to find yourself on the short end of the stick quite often (pun totally intended, by the way). Some of the most popular wargames that we talk about on this website would be:
We keep it old school at times, but that doesn't mean that we aren't willing to give modern options a shot. There's a reason why so many people tuned into the Zlurpcast podcast, and that's because we are a versatile bunch that loves to cover everything related to board games! Whether it's old or new, we're bound to have an opinion on it (for better or worse).
What About Roleplaying Tabletop Games?
When you say the phrase “roleplaying tabletop games”, 95% of the time it's going to mean Dungeons and Dragons. This is a game that has been around since the early '70s and has remained prevalent over all of these years, as it's just too much fun to give up. The game itself can take a lot of time and if you've got a family at home waiting for you, you're more than likely going to lose in the end – with that being said, you might be winning at life in that regard, so it's all good.
While Dungeons and Dragons has to be the most popular title that we've come across, there are still many other options to consider. Some of the other roleplaying tabletop games that we favor around the Zlurpcast studio would have to be:
- Blades in the Dark
- Dungeon World
- Fate Core
Whether you're a fan of the roleplaying games or wargames it does not matter, as everybody is welcome within the Zlurpcast community.
Hey, Don't Forget About Dice Games?
Dice games are also a part of our past times, that is unless you were born after the year 1999 (in which case, good on you for taking an interest in board games). Dice games have been played for a very long time, and some would argue that they are the oldest games that we've come to know. Rolling dice and then moving a few spaces to meet your fate has become something that we look forward to, in a weird sort of way – thankfully, there is an abundance of dice games for us to enjoy.
Some of the most classic games around feature dice, showing you just how important they are within the board game industry. Some of the more popular dice board games options that we've covered in the past would be:
- Rat Trap
There are other dice games out there that are much more serious, but wouldn't consider those “classics”. Although they aren't classics, they still offer up an abundance of fun!
Board Games Still Have Some Juice Left!
Board games are just as fun as you remember them, and the best part about it? There's absolutely no loot boxes or anything else to worry about, it's just good old fashioned fun! If you're sick and tired of the boring grind that comes along with modern video games, take a break from the virtual game world to enjoy a board game or two.
