The '''''BattleTech''''' board game, also referred to as ''Classic BattleTech'' or "CBT" for short (see ''History'' below), is a table-top wargame simulating combat between futuristic mechanized forces in the fictional [[BattleTech]] universe. Originally published by [[FASA|FASA Corporation]], the first edition was named ''[[Battledroids]]'', but the game was renamed ''BattleTech'' from the second edition onwards. [[BattleTech, 2nd Edition]], with its updates to the sometimes unclear or erroneous rules and record sheets from ''Battledroids'', is generally considered the baseline game, and ''Battledroids'' merely a prototype or percursor.
