Over 90,000 board gamers have taken our Board Game Motivation Model to get their personalized profile. We’ll soon be diving into this data in our blog posts. To set the stage for this, we’ve put together some handy reference material.

What’s your Board Game Motivation Profile? Take a 5-minute survey to find out!

Quick Reference Chart

First, we have a graphic that provides a concise overview of the motivations in the model. We identified 11 board gaming motivations that group into 4 clusters. In each cluster, the top row (darker gray) is the primary motivation–the dominant anchor of the cluster. Motivations in the same column are highly correlated, and much less correlated with motivations in the other columns.

Detailed Reference Slides

Second, we have a PDF set of slides that provides more detailed description of each motivation. To give a more concrete sense of what each motivation means, we also list the highest and lowest 10 board game titles for each motivation.
