    What strategy games would you recommend, and more importantly, why?

    What strategy games have you played recently, or what is your favourite? What makes it so good, or what makes it different to the others? I'd like possibly a list of some of you can't think of any reasons "why you'd recommend it". Thanks in advance!

    Hearts of Iron 3 - its quite in-depth in how much you control, such as the trade, trade routes, and research. And of course military movements.  Very interesting and addictive games, that is based on WW2, but can differ from what happened with what you do.

    That's mainly single player (I couldn't get multiplayer working) however, and if you prefer multiplayer games, the MMORTS 'Tribal Wars' is fun too, and has one of the best communities out of all MMORTS's smile

    Both games have a big learning curve, but i enjoy playing both.

    Playing ice hockey at a hockey rink is my favorite strategy game. I believe it is wonderful for several reasons. One must make quick and accurate decisions, change direction constantly, sometimes abandon plans and change strategy quickly, one must display, patience, play both aggressively and buy time patiently (sometimes), and be most creative to win. One must also work as part of a team (one unit) to overcome and defeat the enemy... This is all accomplished at quite an aerobic rate and I have been informed by the infamous Doctor Medina that it is indeed the optimum climate for critical thinking (changing directions constantly at quite a rapid velocity or speed)...

    For video games, Sins of a Solar Empire has been enjoyable for me lately. It is a fast paced RTS based in space. I also enjoy the Civilization series for a more laid back (turn based) game. Also the Total War games were great in the past, but I haven't played any of the recent releases. In the total war games you take on two roles, governing your empire in a turn based format and taking direct command of battles and sieges in RTS format.

    If we are talking about board games I'd have to go with Axis and Allies. It is a two-five player game based on World War II. While the beginning setup is the same every game, the choices of each player can dramatically impact the ending of the game. I also enjoy Settlers of Catan, but while it can be played with only two players I think three is a minimum and four is preferred.

    For the iPhone I recommend Anthill - beautiful graphics and it's just so fun. For the PC I recommend Command and Conquer - again, it's just so much fun and is cool to watch your army crush another!

    Carcassonne. It's a great game for all ages and levels.  I have played with my children and grand-children and we can all truly play at a different "level" but still enjoy it.

    I also like that it is small and portable and is great for travel (camping and hotel rooms). You can also get expansion packs to change things up if you get bored with the same play.
