Welcome on blog about Strategy Games!

Welcome! This is my first post on blog, where I want to talk about all kind of interesting free online strategy games. There are many of them because it's very large group of products – from games crated for kids, to massively multiplayer online role playing games, from racing to puzzle, from mathematics to flying. Everyone can find something interesting, high quality, unique, funny, brilliant and exciting also – purchasing or without any cost. Options are many and if you need to free your mind, you can do it in great games designed for younger players. This genre of games was always one of the most interesting and great types of games I know. From set in World War 2 Panzer General to fantasy role playing strategy game like Heroes of Might and Magic. From real time strategy like Starcraft to turn based games like...ok Heroes of the Might and Magic.

There are several types of strategy games, like:
Wargames - simulations of military battles, big campaigns or war. Best part is to consider situations that are analogous to the situations faced by leaders like Napoleon, Hannibal or other leader. My favorite type of free online strategy games is to play as military leader during World War II, playing as German general, soviet, or British is great feeling :)

Strategy video games are categorized based on whether they offer the continuous gameplay of real-time free online strategy games (RTS), or the discrete phases of turn-based strategy (TBS). Often the computer is expected to emulate a strategically thinking "side" similar to that of a human player, or emulate the "instinctive" actions of individual units that would be too tedious for a player to administer (such as for a non-combat unit like peasant to run away, as opposed to standing still until otherwise ordered by the player); hence there is an emphasis on artificial intelligence like in other online strategy games.

TBS – Turn Based Strategy Game - Where we take turns when playing. This is distinguished from realtime online strategy games where all players play simultaneously. I really love this kind of games, because I can easily relax playing without any pressure or stuff like that. This way I can really easy beat almost every opponent in game, using my brain only – in RTS you need agility and reflex but in TBS games you only need your knowledge, intelligence and supreme tactics.

RTS – Real Time Strategy - Turn-based tactical gameplay is characterized by the expectation of players to complete their tasks using just the combat forces provided to them, and usually by the provision of a realistic representation of tactics & camp; operations. In an RTS, we position and maneuver our units and structures under our control to secure areas of the map and/or eliminate opponents assets. In a typical Real Time Strategy it is possible to create additional units and structures during the course of a game.

PS, did you know that the most frequently played free online strategy games of all time are.... Chess??!
