Strategy Gaming on iPad

Strategy games are good for the brain. Grampa says so, and I agree. Keeping your mind sharp and those synapses firing is a great way to keep an active mind.  With iPad there are hundreds of strategy games to choose from. We've listed our Favourite quality strategy games to help you navigate the huge choice available in this genre. 

This category is not easy to contextualise except to say that each of the games Apps we've listsed below have a big strategy component.  You have to work out the answers rather than simply follow a path to the end of the game.  They challenge the mind and can take days to solve (sometimes!) as you need to think about the solutions and can't simply 'bash' your way through.
