The Board Gamer’s Glossary

The world of board gaming comes with its own crazy lingo. The terminology can be confusing to newcomers and veterans alike—if not entirely ambiguous at times. This will serve as a living, breathing glossary where I will attempt to define board game related lingo and buzzwords.

This living glossary is a collaboration between Paul Shapiro and BoredGameTable. We will continue to add definitions.

Living Card Game (LCG)
Living Card Game is a branded term coined by Fantasy Flight Games. The model differs from Collectible Card Games (CCGs) in that the games are frequently expanded upon with new card content, but with each release containing known content and cards that extend and enhance gameplay. Examples include Arkham Horror: The Card Game, Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, Game of Thrones: The Card Game, etc.
