Believe it or not, but there are still tabletop games that are sought after in 2018. Tabletop games come in many sizes and flavors, but they still are beloved by gamers. Some of these games even have digital versions available on the PC via Steam such as the City of Mordheim and many Warhammer games.
Older table top RPGs that have maintained their popularity over many years include Dungeons & Dragons, the aforementioned Warhammer, and the Call of Cthulu. Tile based games that are played on table tops include such classic games as Dominoes, Anagrams, and, of course, Mahjong. Whereas board games include such stalwarts as Chess, Checkers, Go, and Backgammon. Yes, there is plenty of variety to choose from when it comes to Table Top games. Many of these classic games are universal.
For those players that want to play these almost timeless games there are plenty of ways to do that as most have digital versions. The most obvious example of this is the Tabletop Simulator that can be bought on Steam. Thankfully, you can usually buy the core game on sale on Steam or a digital game store. The core game is $19.99, but it has been as low as half price at $9.99.
However, the DLC for the game is another matter entirely. As of this writing, there are currently 34 DLCs for purchase at a total cost of $242.66. Those don’t go on sale that often if ever. A few examples of extras that can be bought for Tabletop Simulator include Zombicide for $9.99, Warfighter for $14.99, and Pillars of Eternity: Lords of the Eastern Reach for $7.99. Thus, you can buy the TS and then have a huge cache of tabletop games to choose from.
Other tabletop games that offer a lot of DLC after purchase include three games from Games Workshop: Talisman, Blood Bowl, and City of Mordheim. Of these, Blood Bowl and City of Mordheim are also available on consoles like the Xbox One. I actually found the original Talisman The Magical Quest Game in a small storage locker many years ago. This was before the digital version was on Steam. Actually, the digital version is much easier to play so would recommend that over trying to find an old box. However, after playing all three of those games on either the PC or the console, the City of Mordheim reigns as the most fun.
