Strategy games have been dying down recently, and mostly you’ll see games that are more action or adventure oriented, so if you’re looking for a deep strategy game to fill the need for that type of game, then Dicewars would be a very good place to start.
Dicewars is a strategy oriented game filled with Dice. The game can be played with up to 8 players, each player taking turns to beat each other. The game is extremely simple, while also being extremely deep, as people would say, it’s a game that is “easy to learn, but is hard to master.” Each player gets a turn as they try to conquer a map with their dice. A player will click on one area with colored dice (the color should be the same as the player’s color), and then click a neighboring area that they want to conquer. Once both have been chosen, both areas will roll their dice, so the area with more dice has a higher chance of winning. If the attacker wins, the area will be conquered and all the dice there will become his/her dice, which can be used to attack another area, and the area used to attack will have 1 dice remaining. A player may choose to end their turn at any point during their turn, which players will do if they think that conquering more areas would be too risky (since players are left with an area with 1 dice when conquering). This goes on until one player is left with dice on the map.
Dicewars is one of the deepest war games that I have ever played, and its simplicity is such a good thing, making it easy to understand, but very hard to win. Test out your wits with Dicewars and see if you have the strategic prowess to conquer the world.
