10 Best Abstract Strategy Board Games

Here is our list of the 10 best abstract strategy board games. Defining this category is tough because it is, well, abstract. These games are usually not theme heavy and are about overtaking your opponent with various markets using the strategic information of the situation or putting complex puzzles together using that same information. Ancient games like Chess and Go are the ultimate abstract strategy games. We generally leave the ancient classics off these lists but they deserve a shout out.

I really enjoyed #Food Chain Magnate as a surprisingly thematic abstract game. There is absolutely no chance and complete information but it maintains a lot of the narrative and immersion that abstracts often lose.

I tend to get too AP when playing abstract games, getting lost in efficiency so while I do enjoy that, tend towards games where you have to just accept that you can never be sure

Cool list! I hadn't heard of Torres or Ingenious. My personal #1 is #Santorini

Great choice. That is one of my favorite options available to play on Tabletopia!

I don't see why they haven't developed a dedicated Steam app - they have mobile apps...
