The Turn-Based Strategy tag refers to a genre of strategy games where gameplay progresses in turns, with each player taking their actions or making their decisions one at a time. This distinct style of gameplay contrasts with real-time strategy games, where actions occur simultaneously and continuously.

In turn-based strategy games, players typically have the opportunity to plan and strategize their moves carefully before executing them. They take turns performing actions such as moving units, managing resources, conducting diplomacy, or engaging in combat. Once a player has completed their turn, the game progresses to the next player's turn.

One of the key advantages of turn-based strategy games is that they allow for deep thinking and strategic decision-making without having to react quickly under pressure. Players are given the time and space to analyze the game state, consider different options, predict opponent moves, and formulate long-term plans.

Examples of popular turn-based strategy games include:

  • Sid Meier's Civilization series These iconic franchise epitomizes this genre by allowing players to build an empire from ancient times up until modern eras through diplomacy and conquest.
  • XCOM series Set in a futuristic world facing an alien invasion; In XCOM games players manage a team of soldiers against extraterrestrial threats in intense tactical battles where every decision counts.
  • Hearthstone A digital collectible card game that combines elements of deck-building and strategic gameplay where players take turns playing cards representing characters or spells aiming at defeating each other.

Turn-based strategy games offer depth through complex mechanics such as resource management, unit positioning, and clever use of abilities or special powers. This genre appeals to players who enjoy thoughtful planning, strategic decision-making, and the ability to carefully orchestrate their moves at their own pace.
