War   Hex or tile-based

A precursor to SSI's more famous Sword of Aragon fantasy strategy game, War of the Lance is SSI's first foray into the niche genre of fantasy wargames. As one of the first games of its kind, War of the Lance introduces many gameplay elements that became standards in the genre: a good mix of AD&D fantasy units (in this case the Dragonlance universe) and wargame-style tactical options. Resource management is also key, as you can only build new units in cities you conquer. Overall, War of the Lance is a fun fantasy wargame that, although lacking in replayability or longevity that other games enjoy, would influence classics such as Sword of Aragon and SSG's Warlords.
