Category - Territory Building Board Games
Territory-building games involve using specific pieces or resources to claim spaces on a board, with the ultimate goal of gaining more or better areas than the opponent(s). Games in this genre often have some form of combat or conflict resolution system in order to make acquisition more difficult for players. It is also common for territory-building games to include some level of resource generation, development, or point accumulation based on the territory held, adding a layer of strategy. One of the more famous territory-building games is Risk, though more recent games, such as Scythe, have improved upon the formula.
