    Tactical turn-based combat is a form of combat found in games in which the combat is turn-based and emphasizes thoughtful placement and usage of the player's units. Combat in this style is typically fought on a grid map that governs character placement and movement ranges. To succeed in battle, players must move their units into advantageous positions and use the combined power and skills of their units in order to defeat the enemy or achieve other objectives.

    Notable franchises that feature this gameplay type include Fire Emblem, Final Fantasy Tactics, Nintendo Wars, X-COM, Jagged Alliance, and Worms.
