TNTM: Talking Table Top Gateway Games

This week Danny & Trevor go over their top five lists of Gateway Games. There is some debate as to what qualifies a game to be in this category. The generally accepted definition is:

Gateway Game: A game with simple rules that are easy to teach non-gamers in order to attract new players into board gaming as a hobby.

Gateway Game usually have the following qualities:

Simple (so you can explain the rules to them quickly).

Fun (fun games will attract repeat plays).

Short (short hits can be played again, misses gives you time to play something else).

Basically any easy to teach and play game that is quick and fun can be considered a Gateway Game. The term is akin to the “Gateway Drug” definition. They are games that give players an easy entry into the world of board gaming.

Hopefully you this video has helped you discover a game you’d like to try or show to a friend. As always… Keep playing games!
