I fear that a section like this will come off as selling products—because I’ll inevitably link to elaborate commercial games. No, no, not so—I expect you to fashion your own bootleg versions from index cards and acorn caps.

This game is a pretty big deal for lovers of heavy strategy. But this is an incredible HTML version that includes a kind of miniature language that you can use to plan out your movement. (This is also reminiscent of the old Isotropic—for playing Dominion—which has been replaced by the newer Innovation project.)


Community for playing mediumweight strategy games. Incredible selection of Euro-style games, such as Russian Railroads, Targi and Attika. This place took over my life for a season.
