A \;wargame \;is a strategy game i n which two or more players command opposing armed forces in a realistic simulation of an armed conflict. \;A wargame must have a \;set ting \;that is based on some historical era of warfare so as to e stablish what armaments the combatants may wield and the environment they fight in.

\n\n

A \;historical setting \;accurately d epicts a real historical era of warfare. Among recreational wargamers\, t he most popular historical era is World War 2. \;A \;fantasy s etting \;depicts a fictional world in which the combatants wield fictional or anachronistic armaments\, but it should be similar enough to some historical era of warfare such that the combatants fight in a famil iar and credible way. \; \;For instance\, \;Warhammer Age of Sigmar \;has wizards and dragons\, but the combat is mostly based on medieval warfare (spearmen\, archers\, knights\, etc.). Some are also set in the future\, where there is a "\;World War Three"\; going on.

\n\n

A wargame'\;s level of war determines to the scope of the scenario\, the basic unit of command\, and the degree to which lo wer level processes are abstracted.

\n\n

At the \;tactical le vel\, the scenario is a single battle. The basic unit of command is a n individual soldier or small group of soldiers.[9] \;The time span of the scenario is in the order of minutes. At this level\, the specific capabilities of the soldiers and their armaments are described in detail . An example of a tactical-level games is \;Flames of War\, in which players use miniature figurines to represent individual soldiers\, and move them around on a scale model of the battlefield.

\n\n

At t he \;operational level\, the scenario is a military campaign\, and the basic unit of command is a large group of soldiers. At this leve l\, the outcomes of battles are usually determined by a simple computatio n.

\n\n

At the \;strategic level\, the scenario is an ent ire war. The player addresses higher-level concerns such as economics\, r esearch\, and diplomacy. The time span of the game is in the order of mon ths or years
