The best games with modular board 🧩 2021

Looking for a really good modular game 🧩? Then we have just the thing for you: the list with the best Modular Game Board Games 2021.

What are games with modular game board?

Games are played on a modular board, which consists of several elements - often game boards (e.g. Pitchcar) or cards (e.g. Targi). In many games, the board is randomly placed (e.g., Magic Maze), leading to different possibilities for strategy and exploration.

Some games in this category have multiple boards that are not used at the same time, preserving table space. Unused boards remain out of play until they are needed.

By the way, in English "modular game board" is called "modular board".

Examples of games with modular game board

A good example of a modular board is that of Pitchcar. Here you put together a race track from different track sections that fit into each other like puzzle pieces. There are many different ways to assemble the track. Many extensions (e.g. crossing, looping, corkscrew, jump) further expand the possibilities.
