Game terms dictionary: they aren’t all Balderdash

Balderdash game card

Sometimes board game lingo can seem like a foreign language.

While everyone is a geek, the level of table-top game geekery varies greatly. Thus, the birth of a new page: Geeky Game Terms to help those who might find themselves saying “what the heck does RPG mean!?” This page is on the top menu bar, next to the “about” tab.

This dictionary is a living document, so new terms will appear as needed. For now these are the basics and if you can’t find what you’re looking for, the great folks over at Board Game Geek have a more detailed glossary that might be useful.

Feel free to leave a comment if I left off an important one or if you have questions. I’ll be sure to add it!
