Board constrained Tabletop Miniatures Games
This list is a support list for Tabletop Miniature Game plays per month generation. It includes the rules from Tabletop miniatures games by rank but allows miniatures games where the table is measured in squares or hexes but not areas or zones. Units should have some movement rules so that positioning within the board space is a main decision made each turn. The battles can be scenario based but should support a list building element and should be recognised as some type or conflict where all units can have some impact on the fighting and ideally where you can keep adding to your forces by buying more miniatures (either in upgrade packs or individually). The games are also force on force (regardless of the force size) rather than co-op or group onto one (so dungeon crawlers are out).Recommend
Game boards should be free movement between locations except for walls or terrain types. Battles where the board represents zones rather than a unique space for a limited amount of forces aren't included. This also includes corridor tile games, see Confined Corridor Combat for a list where I record those games. The games scale should feel tactical, large areas per space may feel more operational or strategic (and would often ignore line of sight of facing considerations).
This list is focused on wargames but I also include some sports games that are on an 'open' battlefield, have a player per space, resolve around conflict and have cool miniatures.
Games that come with meeples, cubes or miniatures that don't have a consistent scale (so dudes on maps, etc.) don't count even if they can be played with correctly scaled miniatures. Games that may be played as wargames but that isn't the normal mode of playing it are not included.
Feel free to add to this list. If an item is added here and already exists on the Tabletop list I'll remove it; if the added game belongs on the Tabletop list but isn't there then I'll move it. The contents of this list will be counted for plays each month.
