This is a documentation for Board Game Arena: play board games online !

Getting started

From Board Game Arena
Jump to: navigation, search

With Board Game Arena you can play within a few clicks.

By choosing "Play now" on the top menu, you get a list of game tables waiting for players.

You should select the games you want to play now to make them appear at the top of the page.

You can join a game by clicking on a table, then click on "Join game".

If you prefer, you can create a new game table: click on the green play button that corresponds to the game you want to play, and wait for your opponents.

Important to know before you start:

  • It's much better to join a table already created than to create a new one.
  • For most popular games you will find opponents at any time. For the others, try to connect around peak hour (around 22h CEST) to maximize your chances.
  • When you start a game you can't leave the table until it ends. If you leave you will receive a penalty which will create difficulties finding opponents later.
