If you’re a fan of historical strategy games – say Hearts of Iron, Total War, and so on – and are looking to transfer that passion to the world of tabletop, then we’ve got a trio of excellent recommendations for you today. Each game is based on a different theme but remains part of a cohesive series.
The Quartermaster General series is about fast-paced action on a large scale, but also about managing your resources – namely, cards and counters. There are no combat charts, no complicated or niche rules for this unit or that area; you simply play cards to do actions. When your cards run out, you’re unable to do anything else, so you’d best hope your opponent exhausts their resources before you do.
Today’s recommendation is brought to you by Strategy Gamer & Wargamer – two of our sister websites run by Joe (that’s me!) that between them cover just about everything from mainstream strategy to hardcore wargames, digital to tabletop. The Quartermaster General games are created by Griggling Games.
