What are Invasion Games?
Invasion games are a subgenre of tabletop games where players control an invading army and attempt to conquer a pre-determined territory. The games can be as simple as a race to the flag, or as complex as a game of Risk with multiple territories.
Invasion games are popular among gamers because they are easy to learn but difficult to master. The basic premise is simple: each player starts with a small army and tries to capture territory by either marching their troops into position or attacking the enemy’s settlements. The game is over once one player has captured all of the territories or the time limit has expired.
There are a number of different invasion games available, each with its own unique style and gameplay. Some of the more popular games include Risk, Axis and Allies, and Sid Meier’s Civilization.
