Wargames are strategy games that are influenced by traditional wargaming board games. Though fictional scenarios also exist, they typically occur on real-world maps and aim to simulate real-world historical conflicts. Wargames often focus on having large numbers of armies or groups or units and moving them across the map. Maintaining logistics and supply lines is also often a very important aspect of the strategic play. Wargames traditionally use gridded maps, although this is not necessarily true in more recent times, as movement measurements or un-gridded provinces have also become popular.

Combat in wargames will vary depending on the different historical eras the games are based in. However, land, air and sea units may all be simulated in a wargame (and wargames that specifically only simulate land, air or naval aspects of wars also exist). The maps that are played on include various terrains that players can work around and use for strategic play, like mountains and bodies of water; games are also normally presented in an overhead or isometric view.
