XCOM: Enemy Unknown, is a video game in name alone. It runs on a PC, has flashy visual effects, and was developed by Firaxis (famous for the Civilization series). However, this is more of a board game than Robo Rally (a great board game, worth looking up if the reader has never heard of it): you move pieces, roll dice, and swap turns back and forth. One could recreate the entire game with pencils, paper and a random number generator, but that's really not what makes it a board-based experience...
