Strategy, or Eurogames
Strategy games are games which emphasize critical thinking, deduction, and of course - strategy! This differs from what we would call family games, in that luck is often a minimal factor in determining victory.
That said, eurogames still vary widely in their complexity. Some may have a steeper learning curve, and provide whole day-long gaming sessions, while others can be neatly set up and played in under an hour.
Why play a eurogame?
Oftentimes, strategy games come with a relatively hefty price tag. This can be potentially off-putting if you haven’t had any prior experience with the game. That’s why we’re here, however - to help you find the game that best fits your needs.
More than that though, a good strategy game is an investment. A price tag of fifty dollars seems much more reasonable when you consider the amount of time and joy a good game will bring your family or gaming group - twenty or thirty hours worth of gameplay comes out to just dollars per hour; more reasonable than any movie or night on the town.
