Hi,

I'm looking for games that have groups of units moving around together, but with the make-up of that unit hidden from the other players. Something like how Titan treats it's unit stacks or if you did Stratego with groups of pieces..

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Do you mean like block wargames such as Hammer of the Scots?

Sort of, yes, as that allows multiple units per "section" of board... I just have a fondness for the stack mechanic in Titan, where you knew vaguely what strength of force you had to face, but not what "quality"...

A number of games with chits or counters forbid players to examine an opponent's stacks, although the top counter is visible. A House Divided can be played that way for example.

Hi Moshe,

Thanks, these do look like the kind of things that I'd enjoy! Do you, or anyone else have any more examples?

As someone from the North of England, Hammer of the Scots looks like a must buy

Any wargame with stackable counters will have this mode of play and any block wargame with as well. You ought be able to do a search for each.
