Strategy games are one of the most popular forms of computer games. A strategy game or military game is a game (like a board game) where the players’ individual, and often mutually determined, decision making skills have an important role in determining the overall result. Nearly all strategy games involve at least some element of decision making. In fact, many of them depend on it.
There are several subgenres of turn-based strategy games. Some of these include Sequence, Backgammon and Mentalist. Sequence is probably the best known subgenre. In sequence, each player takes turns generating resources until a predetermined number of “cards” are drawn. Then, according to the strategy set forth in the rules of the game, each player proceeds to place their cards adjacent to those that came before them in the sequence, alternately, until all cards are used up and the last card in the sequence is discarded.
Backgammon, another of the more common strategic subgenres, is played with the use of a single die. Each player is allotted only a finite number of dice to play with and must balance that number with the knowledge of how each die will roll. The player can use any number of dice, but the most common types are three and six. In some backgammon subgenres, a player may roll an extra die and use it to re-roll the first die. In other subgenres, the dice may be manipulated by the playing software.
In the adventure games subgenre, players assume the role of a character and make decisions based on what that character wants the player to do. Some of the most popular adventure games include Baldur’s Gate and Temple of Elemental Evil. In these games, players assume the role of a heroic adventurer, going about solving puzzles, fighting monsters, and overcoming obstacles. In this type of strategy game, you can make your own decisions, allowing you to shape the course of your character’s story. Adventure games give players an opportunity to engage in storytelling.
The third sub genre of strategy games are those of the video game genre. Video game strategy games take the narrative element of the strategy board game and apply it to the gameplay. For example, in Fall Of Rome, Caesar must overcome the obstacles placed in front of him and lead his army to victory. The video game allows for decisions regarding who has more control, as this will affect the strategies used to defeat the enemy. In turn-based battles, the game utilizes special strategies using the characters in the game.
In addition to using a turn-based strategy to control the narrative of the game, these games also use randomness in the game’s content. For instance, in the game called Pirates of the Spanish Main, players take on the roll of exploring and discovering the island through a series of events. As you uncover new elements of the island, you will have to decide which path to take, and what to do about each event. These choices will have a direct impact on how the story progresses and is essential to the player’s success. Finally, in games with narrative elements, players use special cards and dice to create plots. These stories are critical to the success of each player, weaving a tale of intrigue and fantasy around their interactions.
