The best games which are campaign or battle card driven 2021

Looking for a really good game with campaign or battle maps? Then we have just the thing for you: the list of the best campaign/battle map games 2021.

What are Campaign/Battle Card Driven games?

The "Campaign/Battle Card Driven" mechanic is a relatively new development in War Games, where players' actions are focused on the cards they hold in their hands. The basic idea is that a single card is used for a single action. Games that use cards to determine the outcome of battles do not use this mechanic.

Examples of games with campaign or battle cards

A good example of a campaign/battle card game are Gloomhaven or Memoir'44.
