Nintendo always values ​​the social aspect of its consoles, and the Nintendo Switch is no different. After all, as a portable console that already comes with two controllers and can be played on the go, it's bound to attract a crowd of gamers who love their social games.

In response, many developers, especially very social board games, have ported and even exclusively released titles on Nintendo Switch for people to enjoy. Here are the best of them.

Of course, not all board games should be played with other people, and Dicey Dungeons is excellent proof of that. Play as one of six classes in this roguelike deck-building hybrid board game to defeat Lady Luck, as she strives to outsmart your strategies every step of the way. And remember: the odds are never in your favor.


Dungeon Encounters

Dungeon Encounters is an exploration RPG designed to look and play like a board game. You move around the boards, much like your typical tabletop session, and lead your party through the mysterious maze. And since this is still an RPG, expect a very well-written story and deep combat to top off the experience.

Hint: the classic mystery game

No board game session is complete without at least one thriller game, and Clue fits the genre perfectly. Clue for the Nintendo Switch features online and local multiplayer, up to six participants (duh!), and a logic-assisted virtual clue sheet for specialist notes. Without DLC, you already have access to six different tables.
