Also referred to as tabletop gaming, a wargame tends to be a strategic simulation of combat (through the use of lead / pewter / plastic miniatures) with multiple units with different statistics and features. While role-playing games focus on the plight of the individual character, wargames pull back for a wider view of units in armies, representing nations and whole races. Warhammer 40K and Battletech (and, actually, most games by FASA and Games Workshop) are popular wargames.
