War Board Games

War games involve direct conflict and often require eliminating a certain amount of the enemy or fulfilling specific objectives to win. Dice are frequently used to simulate the chaos and uncertainty of combat, but cards can also be incorporated into fights. In addition to being used for resolving combat, modern war games often use cards to give players advantages such as faster movement or the ability to re-roll dice. There is also a style of game called Card Driven Games (CDGs) that uses cards as the primary way to interact with the game.

Boot Camp

  • 1775: Rebellion – Part of the ‘Birth of America’ series from Academy games, this is a great way to start playing war games. Plays up to 4 people, lots of interaction, short rulebook and can be played in 2 hours or less.
  • Undaunted: Normandy – Undaunted blends elements of traditional war games like chits and dice with modern deck building to create an innovative fast-playing World War 2 themed game.

Experienced

  • Commands and Colors – This is a large family of games that covers Ancient Greece/Rome, Napoleonics, Samurai and much more. We suggest picking a period of history you enjoy and start there but if you are still unsure try Ancients. Use cards to give commands to your forces, roll dice to fight and eliminate your opponent. Fun blend of strategy and history.

This game has loads of plastic pieces, a stunning looking map and exciting choices from start to finish. If you are more of a Hobbit fan, try Battle of Five Armies instead.
  • Root – Players take on the role of a woodland nation to fight for control of a vast woodland. Aside from great looking art and components, Root also gives each woodland nation its own unique abilities and powers making each one truly unique. If you want loads of interaction between players, interesting rules and a fast playing game then Root is the perfect choice.
  • Great Battles of History – This is a family of traditional chit and hex games published by GMT Games.
