Genre: Grand strategy

Group Description

This sub-genre of strategy games primarily deals with grand strategy, i.e. military strategy on a large scale that focuses on co-ordination of resources, economy, and management of a nation's infrastructure. Grand strategy games emphasize these aspects as the main challenge, with the tactical aspect (battles) playing a secondary role.

Note: 4X games (e.g. Civilization) should not be included in this group, even though they may have grand strategy elements. Only games that focus on military grand strategy are allowed.
