I'm a game designer that's been playing tabletop games since the early '00s. Most of my experience is with the D&D 3/3.5/Pathfinder ruleset, but I've been branching out more in the past few years.

comment What's the difference between a roleplaying game and a board game?
I think that the existing answers cover the ground pretty well. I was just trying to make a joke about the Jacobellis v. Ohio Supreme Court case: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_know_it_when_I_see_it

comment What's the difference between a roleplaying game and a board game?
@aramis No matter where the line is, it's pretty clear that the line is fuzzy. The best 'definition' that we're likely to find is still going to have some edge cases that give unexpected results. The games that you describe are the immediate predecessors to modern RPGs, so it makes sense that they straddle that line a bit.

Hello, and welcome to RPG.SE! It looks like your answer is more a forum-style response than a standalone answer. Your answer doesn't really say anything that the current accepted answer doesn't, and it's likely that you're going to attract some downvotes because of that. I'd suggest taking a look at the tour and help center, and maybe adding something to this answer that gives more detail into what you think makes your answer different from the other answers.

Is it? That's odd, I've never seen it ruled that way. The 'tuning fork' doesn't have a gold cost, and "Assume that focus components of negligible cost are in your spell component pouch." There is similar wording on the 3.5 SRD. I've never played in a game where the 'tuning fork' was a thing that mattered.
