1775: Rebellion maybe ?


Not sure what you mean with "develope" though. The game is very easy to learn and plays great with 2-4 players. If played with more than 2 players, you begin playing in teams of 1 versus 2 or 2 versus 2. No matter how many people play, the game stays equally straight-forward.

EDIT: You need the expansion if you want a 2-player game.

Root is 2-4 with the base box and goes from 1-6 with the Root: The Riverfolk Expansion expansion. I don't think it'd do 2 players (or 6) particularly well, but it has a good range, and gives a good wargame feel for most of the factions.

Outstanding light wargame that plays well from 2 to 4 players. Sorry, no 5th player support, so that might be a drawback, but otherwise should fit the bill!

this game is similar to COIN game (cubalibre, andean abyss, etc.) A very popular system in the wargame community but could have a slight learning curve as each player is asymmetric.

Perhaps Clash of Cultures or Eclipse?

Not war games per se but you develop and can take over opponents lands.

It's a bit more abstract, but if you want a game that you have develop an engine and war as an option, you could look into Wealth of Nations with the Wealth of Nations: War Clouds expansion.

It's mostly an economic diplomacy game, but you can force it to be more of a wargame by going the military route.

I second the recommendation for Root.

Despite what the box say, it's really 3-4 (base game) or 3-6 (with either expansion).

Mega civilization?

So it is a game for 5 - 18 people but it makes it replayeble.
