Block Games

A block wargame is a board wargame that represents military units using wooden "blocks" instead of cardboard counters. These blocks are typically square and are generally thick enough that they can be placed on their side with the front facing the owning player. Details about the unit (for instance, its identity as well as its attack, defense and movement scores) can then be seen easily by the owning player, while the opposing player will be left unsure of the exact nature of piece; while he can see where his rival's forces are, fog of war is emulated by preserving the secrecy of the type and quality of the troops.

Often, block pieces display the main information in the center with a series of numbers (or pips) around the edge, so that the current strength of the unit can be shown in a step-reduction system. When the unit is wounded (representing a single person) or diminished in number (representing more than one person), the player turns it counterclockwise, with the number of pips at the top of block indicating its current strength. While the example block has four steps (strengths of 4, 3, 2 and 1 respectively), blocks can have fewer steps.

Alternatively, some block wargames require the player to remove the block representing the wounded unit from the board and replace it with a block with a lower strength.

GMT Games entered the block wargame market in 2003 with the release of Europe Engulfed, a simulation of the entire ETO. A sister game, Asia Engulfed, is slated for release in late 2006. GMT also released a block wargame series called Commands and Colors: Ancients which met with wide approval.
