    Hello,
    digging out grout to get between two tiles, then just chisel under all the tiles from there and knock them down. You'll want to wear eye protection because of flying shards of ceramic, and lay a thick canvas tarp under the area so the falling tiles don't damage the floor.

    charlesedwin gives good advice here. I would like to add that you can use a a heat gun on low setting or even a hair dryer to help with the removal. Good luck!

    Removing the grout and chiseling is the best way of doing it without damaging the wallboard. However, your still probably going to damage it if you are removing it from an entire wall (mistakes happen). Is this a case of just needing to remove a row or a couple of damaged tiles? Or is it because you are retiling an entire area? If retiling an entire area you're better off just ripping down the wallboard and putting new wallboard or concrete board up, its pretty cheap to do and would save you a lot of time.
