- Not only move and fight, but with other things to do
- Fantasy theme, not aliens and spaceships
- Setup always different, not predetermined scenarios
- Maximum duration 3 hours
- Possibly fighting with cards, not dice
- Simple rules, no long manual with rules that complicate the game
- Must play well with 2, 3, and 4 players, especially with 2-3, no false multiplayer as war of the rings
- No co-operative, and no games with master (descent)

among the highest positions in the standings I thought:

mage knight
sid meier civilization
runewars
earth reborn

recommendations?

Of the games you list, only Earth Reborn is a Miniatures game.

It has A LOT of rules.

right, I exclude civilization.

I meant a game where you fight for territories.

Earth Reborn has too many rules, but runewars and mage knight? I also accept other recommendations
