Casual Game Definition

With the help of our industry panel, we have formulated version 1.0 of the casual game definition. Using the definition as a guide, the Casual Game Revolution program will create better recognition for casual games and tools to promote them directly to the intended audience.

"A casual board (or card) game is played in under an hour, set up and taught in under 10 minutes, and requires some light strategic thought. Casual games are not specifically marketed to children, but can be enjoyed by anyone from older children to adults."

This definition was formed by a panel of industry professionals including publishers, distributors, retailers, designers, members of the media, and others.
