Warhammer 40k - Lexicanum β


A tabletop game involves the use of a tabletop, hence the name. Usually this is a role-playing game or miniature-based gaming system that is played out over the surface of a table (hence the name). Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 produced by Games Workshop are examples of miniature games, while Dark Heresy or Rogue Trader produced by Fantasy Flight Games are examples of Role-Playing Games.

This term is often mistakenly applied to board games, which are a category in and of themselves.
