Perfect Information Games that are not Abstract Strategy Games

Following a thread in the abstracts area, I decided to solicit input on a subject of interest. I'm looking for examples of games that are perfect information games, but not abstract strategy games.

Since this geeklist deals with abstract strategy games, you know that there has to be definitions and philosophies involved. We abstract fans tend to like to think about games more than we like to play them.

So a perfect information game is a game in which all information on which to make a decision is known at the time of making the decision. That means:

No random elements (dice, drawing random cards from a deck, picking tiles, etc.)
No hidden movement (Stratego is right out.)
No simultaneous movement (Your move could succeed or fail based on what the other guy does.)
Only two players. (Because at some point, someone ends up in a "kingmaker" position, where perhaps he can't win, but he can influence who does. In that case your best move will depend on his decision, and you don't have that information.) The game, as published, doesn't have to be an exclusively two player game, but it has to be a reasonable game when played by only two players.)

Now, what is an abstract strategy game? Usually, fans of abstracts are fans of perfect information games, and sometimes use the terms interchangeably, so it gets a bit confusing. What I mean in this case is that the abstract strategy isn't a simulation of anything. It either has no theme, or the theme is not really significant to the game rules. i.e. Chess has a battle theme, but real armies don't move like that. There's really no connection between Chess' theme, and its rules.

Usually, but not always, abstract strategy games are defined by positional relationships. You try to forum lines or shapes, or fit pieces together, or move pieces on top of other pieces to capture them.

Hive, Blokus, and Hey That's My Fish are examples of abstract strategy games. Even though Hive has some sort of association with its theme, of insects, it's really all about forming patterns of tiles.

So what I am looking for is strongly themed perfect information games, in which the game is either a simulation, or at least is strongly influenced by something that really exists in the real world. My examples that I start the list with will explain more deeply.

And since there are very, very, few games that fit those categories absolutely perfectly, I'm willing to compromise a bit. A game with a random setup will still qualify as a perfect information game. (e.g. I'll call Hey, That's My Fish or Chess960 perfect information games.) I'll also include games which are not perfect information games, but which could be, with a very slight modification, so long as that modification is not very significant to game play.

If the random or hidden information isn't an important part of the game, I'll still call it perfect information.

As for compromise on the abstract strategy aspect, that's even more fuzzy. There are some games that have a theme, and that theme affects the artwork or the card text, but not really the game play so much. A game like Acquire has a theme of hotel chains, but it's really all about scoring points by growing and merging chains of blocks. It's a judgement call about whether something is an abstract strategy game. The examples that I start the list with are all games that I would say are NOT abstract strategy games.

ETA: It appears that some people, including some mathematicians, use the term "perfect information" to include games where there are random, but not hidden, elements. In other words, some people would call Backgammon a perfect information game. My definition doesn't include Backgammon or any other game with random elements over which the player has no control.

This is the quintessential example for this list. It's a euro game with a livestock theme. Feed animals. Build buildings. But it's perfect information. You can see everyone one of your opponent's options, and predict them well in advance.

I've never played this game, but the reviews I have seen make it look like it is probably a perfect information game.

Like Agricola:ACBaS, it's a typical euro in the way it "feels", and it is strongly themed with a "real world" theme, so it isn't an abstract.

At first, this doesn't seem to fit. It has a die, and it has hidden information. However, it doesn't have much, and with two slight modifications, it could become a perfect information game.

The only "imperfect" elements are:

A random setup, which I've already said I would compromise on.
The hidden stack of upcoming races/abilities. However, the top 6 are already shown, and it would do the game very little harm to allow players to examine the rest of the deck.

The final attack die roll. That's not all that critical to the game. You could give players six chits to start the game, marked with 1, 2, 3, and three zeros. When an end of turn attack roll is called for, you can choose one chit. (You have to be within 3, i.e. a real die roll could theoretically win.) After you have used all six, you get a new set of six. (Probably would never happen, but just in case.)

Do those things, which barely affect game play, and the game becomes a perfect information game.

There is randomness in the setup, but everything is known to the players from the beginning so this is a perfect information / zero luck game that has some decent replayability.

Ora is not a 2-player game only. It can be played with 1-4 players. There is no hidden information or random element in this game. Resources and buildings are available to all players during the time of decision. Therefore, when played as a 2-player game, I believe it can be considered as a perfect information game with theme set in Medieval era.

David, you may want to check out this article I wrote for The Opinionated Gamers website two weeks ago about this very topic. At least, it gave a list of notable non-abstract Perfect Information games, but we included multiplayer games as well as 2-player ones.

http://opinionatedgamers.com/2013/09/11/2012-the-year-of-per...

For those who don't want to bother with the link, here is the list of games we came up with. Titles with an asterisk are those with a variable setup. Of course, there are many more perfect information games than these, but these are the ones we felt were the best known ones.

The family version of the game could be made into perfect information easily if players were allowed to look at the upcoming Round Cards, which would only change a couple decisions at most IMO.

A lot of gamers actually prefer the family version because it is closer to a zero luck game...

I think this should count. It is not only a two player game however and it is a variable setup although most people will use a scenario.
The mines are the only random element and plenty of people prefer to use the solo rules for mines which removes that element.
It sort of has simultaneous movement but not the way you mean I think. It is essentially movement by turns but done at once.

This one isn't perfect information if played according to the rules, because you set up behind a screen. Bad luck on the setup can leave a player hopelessly behind. However, it could be modified to set up by placing pieces one at a time in full view. I've known people who play it that way.


(As an aside, I'm really surprised this game was never reprinted. I know a lot of people who remember playing this one in the distant past. I would think someone would put together a new edition.)

Perfect enough that I have played with an opponent over Skype with the camera pointed at the board.

The only "imperfect" element is which cube(s) will be drawn for combat, but you can easily calculate your odds by seeing how many cubes are not in the bag and then pan accordingly.

The only cards in this game are the building cards and bomb cards. Both are shown face-up to all the players and made available for determining future actions.

"all information on which to make a decision is known at the time of making the decision"

I've played this with 2P, 3P, and 4P. Each has a different feeling and playstyle.

This one occurred to me today...

Strange that a simultaneous role-selection card game would be a perfect information game, but all players start the game with random--but identical--hands of cards. From there, when new cards are added to the hands, an identical but random group of cards is added to all players' hands.

There's variable setup in each round, but it's open information too.

(It's certainly possible that I might be forgetting a card or action which might have you draw or do something random...)

This classic game is checkerlike but has a bit more theme to it. You will probably dismiss it as abstract though.
