Board game system, etc.
To provide a system which allows for using an existing capacitance touch panel as a board for board games.SOLUTION: A board game system of the present invention uses a capacitance touch panel capable of detecting multiple touch positions by detecting changes in capacitance as a board, and comprises an electronic device with such a touch panel, and one or more game pieces to be used on the touch panel, each game piece at least partially comprising conductive parts. The conductive parts are spaced apart from each other with a nonconductive part or air gap in between at a contact surface. When the game piece is placed on the touch panel, change in capacitance at a contact position of the conductive parts on the contact surface is less than a predetermined amount if the conductive parts are not being touched by a user, and is no less than the predetermined amount if the conductive parts are being touched by the user. The electronic device is configured to recognize the game pieces and determine states of movement thereof.
