About BoardGamesOnline

     BoardGamesOnline originally started in May 2004 with an actual tabletop session of the 3M game "Breakthru". After learning the rules and playing a sample game, there was a desire to find out more about it and to get experience playing against players who knew the game. A quick google search revealed that there was no online version of Breakthru, no strategy guide and not even a decent gaming session review.

     The first prototype of an online-capable version of "Breakthru" simply allowed players to move pieces around a board, and it had a very rudimentary network communication mechanism. Thus was born the concept that evolved into BoardGamesOnline, the BGOClient, and this website. Now, after registering for an account on BoardGamesOnline, users can download the BGOClient, and play any boardgame online.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost?

     It's FREE! The BGOClient has been developed as free software to enable boardgame fans to play their favorite games online. It is especially useful for people who do not have local gaming groups and for people who cannot find opponents for older boardgames, such as the Bookcase Games developed in the 60's and 70's by the 3M Company.
