Welcome to Board Game Maniac

We love board games and we want to share this love with you. Here you can find one of the biggest directories of board games, designers and publishers of boars games on the web. Find out where you can play games online and read articles which include reviews, strategy guides and board game awards information. We are also going to occasionally review digital versions of board games and video games as well and, in general, post anything game-related.

We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.
