While very similar, and sometimes used interchangeably, a board game is generally a game you play on a board (like Monopoly, Catan or Cluedo), and a tabletop game is a boarder term, which not only covers broard games, but also things like miniature wargames, role playing games, poker, and card games. If it’s played at a table, then it’s a tabletop game!
