The wargame hobby is an eclectic one in terms of game mechanics. In the 70s and 80s for the most part the traditional hex and counter mechanic dominated. Over time however new mechanics were created. Some never took off while others did. A great example is the CDG. Premering in the 1994 game We the People it's become a major part of the wargaming landscape. Block wargaming with it's fog of war is another example.

Another mechanic is the area impulse. While not as wide spread as the CDGs and block games it's been around since the early 80s and has had it's successes. Here is a list of games that use this rather distinctive mechanic.

Please add games to the list that you feel are needed.

The first in a series of area impulse games released by Avalon Hill. A game I've always wanted to play but never quite got to. Someday.

The highest ranked of the four Avalon Hill titles. Celebrating it's 20th year and still extremely popular. Played it once long time ago and I can see why folks like it so much.

Ever see the classic Doctor Who with Jon Pertwee as the Doctor? They had a great one called Terror of the Autons where he fought plastic creatures called Autons. The guy on the cover of this game looks like an Auton. Mind you I like the guy.

Game wise this is an amazing game and it has helped refuel the area impulse system in game design. Created by Michael Rinella who is making a name for himself with the area impulse system.

Another Michael Rinella design. A magazine game but don't let that put you off this fantastic game. The first time I played this I was amazed at how well it mirrored the historical events. Fantastic artwork as well.

The historical article written by Michael that comes with the game is excellent as well and really helps set the stage for players unfamiliar with the campaign.

I would love to see this game packaged together with several other scenarios if you will from the Overland Campaign and given the full release treatment from someone like MMP. It deserves it.

If you're a Staligrad kind of guy here's another area impulse option for you. Designed by Tetsuya Nakamura and published by MMP.

Gettysburg done as an area impulse game.

And here is Antietam.

Part of the problem is the game broken down each turn to a couple hours, it just doesn't feel right for the area impulse mechanic.

Another MMP entry in their "Storm Over..." family of games. Entertaining, fast-playing, and conveys just enough flavor to capture the essence of the siege at a "wave top" level.

Mike Rinella's area-impulse take on this particular battle trumps both Turning Point: Stalingrad and Storm Over Stalingrad, being a considerable improvement over both. It is expensive; however, the physical production values are worth the cost! Very fast-moving game!
