Board games? Card games? Role-playing games? Tabletops! The transition is sometimes fluid, but tabletop fans swear by the very unique magic and fascination of their strategic game system. And quite rightly so. Tabletop games have long had a cult following, use superbly crafted miniatures and are simply a lot of fun.
In our EMP Online Shop, you'll find the coolest tabletop merch and the best accessories for your playing field and your next adventures in a fantastic and fascinating world.
Starts and development - what are tabletop games?
Tabletop games are classic strategy-society games that can look back on a long tradition. Today's games can be described as a further development of Baron von Reisswitz's "war game" from the 19th century. Prussian officers were taught strategy with these re-enacted battles on a reduced scale.
Today's players compete with various miniatures on the playing field, which is the size of a table. With the help of special dice and a tape measure, the figures are moved and can perform certain actions. Hills, buildings or forests are often built on the playing fields. The player who can occupy a certain terrain, achieve strategic goals or remove the opponent's pieces from the table wins.
Some veterans remember: the early tabletop games were Demonworld and Battletech. The market leader today is Games Workshop with the Warhammer 40,000 and Warhammer Age of Sigmar game systems. In the meantime, there are tabletop games set in many different fictional worlds. But there are also games with a real historical background, or sub-genres like horror, adventure, pirates, pulp or western.

Why tabletop fascinates us so much
Some want to use tabletop to recreate the most epic battles with an obsession for detail, others find their fun in even more vivid competition with friends and in tournaments, still others pursue a calming balancing hobby. The reasons for tabletop are as varied as the themes, figures and playing fields themselves.
Anyone who has ever picked up a paintbrush to paint miniatures will have felt the magic. You create your own figures, your own playing fields with different terrain pieces and want to protect your "babies" accordingly. This is not like playing video games in front of a screen - you die and get respawn. Here it's about a world of your own that you helped to create. And this one has to be defended.
