Tabletop Board Game Industry Standards

Board games, also referred to as tabletop games, contain a board and components that move around the board based on a set of rules. While all board games share that definition, that is where the similarities end. Games have no standards for size, components, and materials because each game is designed and built around its playability. To give you a sense of measurements and material, below are specs that would recreate the board game Risk.
