Both of these were already mentioned, but they were the two that came to my mind as well: Carcassone and Neuroshima Hex.

The latter game is also available in the form of Neuroshima Hex Puzzle, which I think I prefer. It's just what it sounds like; NHP is to NH as chess puzzles are to chess and bridge columns are to bridge.

Can't go wrong with Battle for Wesnoth HD. It has a ton of content and well worth whatever price it's at currently. A lot of others mentioned (Neuroshima Hex, Carcassonne especially) you really can't go wrong with either. Some others you may want to look into:

- Ascension.
- Sword of Fargoal.
- 100 Rogues.
- Palm Heroes 2.
- Samurai Bloodshow.

These games offer a good bit of strategy and are good choices for iPad.

Not really "large scale strategy" as such, more a small unit tactical approach. Gameplay obviously heavily inspired by x-com (which I personally still play at least once a year by the way! ) and the like.
Got this too gonna take a look at the others mentioned

Well, I did it, after reading the reviews... I will say this -- the game frustrates me to no end and often p*sses me off, which means I'm having a lot of fun.

The thing with GLWG -- the simple mechanics and fun graphics really belie how challenging this game can be.

In addition to Great Little Wargame and Tactical Soldier, I think Neuroshima Hex (http://appshopper.com/games/neuroshima-hex) and Neroshima Hex Puzzle (http://appshopper.com/games/neuroshima-hex-puzzle) are really good. I suggest both because NS Hex Puzzle is really a great tutorial for playing the main game...and async multiplayer is coming to NS Hex (according to their blog). There's a lite version of NS Hex as well. Those two apps do go on sale, so you may want to keep an eye out for that.

And to give my friends at Manomio & Cinemaware a shout, if you enjoy retro strategy, you should absolutely get Defender of the Crown (http://appshopper.com/games/defender-of-the-crown).

What types of strategy games do you like?

Thanks to all who suggested the following games: 100 Rogues. Palm Heroes 2 (Deluxe). The War of Eustrath HD. Ascendancy. Keg Bearer. Samurai Bloodshow.

Just picked all of them up, despite not liking that some have the dread IAP.

(GLWG I had, and highly recommend)
