What Other Strategy Board Games Do You Recommend???


  • try carcassonne by rio grande games it takes about 45 min to play and has a awsome gameplay and scoring system… either that or my personal favorite Settlers of Catan by mayfair that game is very well worked out in strategy as well as awsome expansions but is expensive. its setting is an island somewhere thats being settled in the 1600’s that you populate by collecting and paying rescources for settlements and cities which colllect more rescources for you to buy more settlements, roads, and cities or to buy development cards which get expounded upon in the two expansions… both do not include war, but if you like strategy, and don’t mind not able to pound someone else with inf. , that is still awesome play these would be my suggestions A good one that a friend owns that I’ve only played twice is Age of Imperialism by Eagle games it has a nice money collection and combat system but “is the game that never ends it goes on and on my friends…”


  • And good ol’ Blitzkrieg from Avalon Hill is not one that should be forgotten… great game 🙂

    and RoboRally of couse 😎


  • Try Soldier Kings. It’s a great game on the 7 years war during the time of Fredrick the Great.

    Air Cav is good if u like fast pace squad warfare that includes helicopters during the cold war era.

    PanzerBlitz or PanzerLeader if u like squad warfare in world war 2.

    Battletech is a great game If u like Mech Warfare.

    Blitzkrieg General is a great game based on world war 2 its like Axis & Allies but uses cardboard pieces. Still a good game though.

    Just to name a few.


  • Conquest of the Empire is a great game…


  • I’m not sure if I mentioned this already, but if you don’t have Civil War already, get it!!! Best 40 bucks I ever spent! (and I spent 40 bucks in very “interesting” ways :roll:)

    Also, anybody try “Attack” (also by Eagle Games)? It looks a lot like A&A, though with less territories I think.


  • Victory in the Pacific is a really good game. Complex but still very fun.
    Its like AAP but with counters. I can post more info if wanted.


  • counters? What do you mean?

    @TG:

    counters? What do you mean?

    I think he’s referring to “hex” game counters…


  • somewhat difficult to explain, but here goes, in victoryin the pacific there are no ‘‘generic’’ ships or armys, it starts off at pearl harbour,

    japan, britan, and the US start with the actually ships they had back then (each one has a different speed, strength, and armor), there is a counter for every ship japan, britan, or US had back then, so it would be very difficult and expensive to use plastic pieces, you do not buy ships or units in this game but recieve them when the were built

    japan starts with ALOT of ships but the allies have close to nothing, but as the turns go buy japan starts to get less and less while the USgets more and more. Very fun game but kinda hard to use all those cardboard counters


  • I would recommend several games some simple,some harder.I think Risk is a great option for young and old alike.You can understand the rules within an hour and have a game over within 2 hours.Also,Risk is relatively cheap ($20 U.S. funds).The second game I recommend is Stratego,a simple,yet difficult game that even I have yet to master.


  • I think someone already mentioned it in here, but Chess and Go are the classic strategy games, and still two of the best, requiring the most thought, planning, strategy, and any other adjectives you can think of. I only wish I had the patience to try and master Chess

    Yeah, I think you mentioned it, on the other page.


  • LoL, that sounds like something I would do


  • Maybe it was in another topic

    ahh…chess, hours of hair pulling live action fun for less than $19.95! 😉


  • I must admit, i prefer Go, even though i am not good at it at all. I once got beaten on a 9x9 field with four stones given to me in front. Even though it was close, it was a lesson.
