The best wargame games

Wargames, much like their tabletop counterparts, are tactical, strategy games in which the players must win battles between two warring factions by moving and attacking with single units, usually played on top-down hex maps. Wargames are often historically accurate, but they can also be based on fantasy or sci-fi settings. Some of the most popular wargames are Panzer General and the Close Combat series.
