8. Pike and Shot

Pike and Shot serves as a history lesson for two reasons: one, it takes place in the 1600s’ Thirty Years’ War, and two, it’s a great representation of the classic war game, complete with hex tiles and turn-based combat.

The English Civil War saw the heavy use of pike-and-shot infantry, which employed both musketeers and pikemen. These brigades navigate the map slowly, while more agile light infantry and cavalry dart around, providing help or picking off enemy forces. Players must master using these different squadrons in combination in order to secure victory. And while such armies may seem ungainly, they can be lethal in the hands of a true general.
