Strategy

Puzzle Together a Plan

Don't just be smart, be clever. Strategy games will help you hone this skill. Not only do they ask you to think and make intelligent decisions, but they ask you to make ten at a time, five turns in advance. Stretch your mental capacity with these exercises that feel like anything but work. Online strategy games are more than mere brain teasers. You won't even realize you're flexing your mind muscles! You'll just be focused on winning the war.

We have hundreds of online strategy games that make you think fast, and deep, in all your favorite game genres. Yes, there are a ton of strategy war games to wage – lead the British army to victory in Warfare 1917, for example, or fight a more abstract war in City Seige 3: Jungle Seige. But turn-based strategy games come in all shapes and sizes: try the popular game with the self-explanatory title, Plants vs. Zombies, for one. 

There are also other types of immersive thinkers of the strategy variety. Like escape games, where you'll need all of your wits and your sharpest powers of observation to ransack whatever space you find yourself in (a prison, a car, a haunted house) and use whatever you can, and whatever puzzles you can solve, to get out. There are simulation games, civilization games, tower-defense games, games based on characters and universes you know and love, card games, and many more ways to string together a good strategy. Whatever you're looking for, we've got it.

We, for one, feel smarter just having played. Your turn.
