Break Time: Eador - Masters Of The Broken World

I was talking to someone about Crusader Kings II last weekend and about twenty minutes into a hand-waving sermon about how brilliant it is, I realised I'd described it as a turn-based strategy game. It isn't turn-based, of course, but I spend so much time pausing and pondering that I've managed to convince myself that it is. The I started thinking - what was the best turn-based strategy game of the year? XCOM is tactical, I didn't warm to Fallen Enchantress and Warlock was solid but unspectacular. Have I forgotten something? Eador looks like it might have learned a trick or two from Age of Wonders and even though it won't be out for Christmas, beta signups have begun. Here's a new video.

Eador is also seeking attention on Steam Greenlight.

Oh! Unity of Command! It didn't come out this year but we found it this year and that's how time works.

Edit: I forgot Endless Space!
