Most Complicated Board Game

It’s quite the board game and culture mashup.

Would that really count as a game? I’m thinking it’s more of an obstacle course 🙂

So what’s the most complicated game that you’ve played? For me personally I think Magic Realm is by far the most complicated game I’ve ever played. It’s actually hard to imagine anyone enjoying a game that complicated.




Advanced Squad Leader is probably the most complicated game I know of that is still very popular.




I think ASL is widely accepted as the most complicated. There are several more GMT and other war games that will fit nicely into complicated. However, the most complicated games I own and play regularly are Sword of Rome, Android (the board game not netrunner), Mage Knight the Board Game
