What are property games?

In property games, players own entities and perform actions for those entities - or collect benefits when others use them.

In board games "property" sometimes is also referred to as "ownership".

Examples of games where you can get benefits by owning entities

The 18xx series (e.g. 1846: The Race for the Midwest) and Imperial are pure examples of this mechanism.
