The best fighting board, card & dice games 🥊 2022

Looking for a really good fighting game 🥊? Then we have just the thing: our list of the best fighting games 2022.

What are fighting games?

Fighting games are party games that encourage players to engage game characters or fighting machines in hand-to-hand combat and direct melees.

Combat games differ from War Games in that the combat in war games takes place as part of a large-scale military simulation, whereas in combat games the emphasis is on the combat situation itself.

Analogy for computer & video games.

So in computer & video games, fighting games would tend to be beat'em'up games like Streetfighter, Mortal Kombat or the Double Dragon series - and not real-time strategy like Starcraft, Warcraft or Command & Conquer.
