The best games where you have points for the movement of your character 2024

Looking for a really good game where you get points for moving your character? Then we have just the thing for you: the list of the best movement point games 2024.

What are games with movement points?

A player or his character is given a number of points to spend on movement. This is common in a variety of games, but especially in War Games, where hexes can cost different amounts depending on the terrain. This differs from action points in that it is a property of the particular piece or terrain, rather than player options (which can "include" movement).

Examples of games where you have points for moving your character:

A good example of a movement points game is Memoir '44 or Formula D racing game.
