There are great "traditional" wargames that don't use hexes.

I was looking for a descriptor that would give more "traditional" wargames a chance to be recognized . . . but at the same time I didn't want to exclude area movement games, games using squares, etc.

Another interesting idea about making the awards more wargame-friendly has been raised in the following thread:
