Many traditional board games, such as chess and checkers, are often considered to be "war in disguise" – involving "capturing" and "defeating" your opponent – so strategy board games with battle and war themes are a natural fit. War has shaped human civilizations since the dawn of history, and these games allow us to explore wars both ancient and modern.
