Top Ten Entry Level War Games

Top Ten Beginner War GamesFor newcomers, the war game genre can be somewhat intimidating. War games can be incredibly complex in their scale and can take many hours to play. Combine that with the fact that they are inherently confrontational and it can make for an intimidating experience for new players. This can be especially true for Eurogramers who are used to both cooperative and victory point games that have little-to-no direct conflict.

Eventually you might want to try out a war game. Sometimes it’s just fun to blow up enemy troops. But where do you start? If you want a true war game experience, there are many choices out there to scratch that itch. has long since established itself as a fantastic war game. You can even dive into the old and spend some time pushing around cardboard chits.

Consider these titles as all good starting points for the war game genre, even if they don’t always provide the full war experience. What they lack in their epicness of scale and depth of play, they more than make up for in accessibility and quick play time. If it ends up being something you enjoy, then take that chance to move into something more complex.

To help define the entry level war game (or even beginner war game) my first requirement was that it had to play in under 2 hours. Ideally, less then 90 minutes, but that didn’t have to be the case. Any game that took 3-4 hours probably isn’t always a good choice for a beginner. Second, the rulebook ideally wouldn’t be too complex. The game should be able to be explained in under 20 minutes. Obviously I had to be somewhat flexible with this as sometimes you have to go by feel. But in general, these games should all be fairly accessible to someone unfamiliar with the genre.

If so I would love to get some feedback from you, on a game I am finishing up.
It is in flash and can be played in any web browser.(I think)
This is about strategic game-play, not 3D graphics.
It is a 2D war game, like Risk, but more in depth. Complete with skilled AI players to fight.
Anyhow there is the link, book mark it and check back often if you like it. Please send me some feedback on what you think, good or bad, it all helps. If there is something you dont like and have an idea how you would fix it, please mention it.
Also if you find any bugs please report them!
(this is still work in progress)
Thank you,
