Multiplayer Pc Turn-Based Games

At the moment, as I write this article, we are in a full coronavirus emergency. Here in Italy as gradually the rest of the world, we are locked up at home for security reasons and to prevent the virus from spreading. Our daily routines have been disrupted by this obligation to stay at home and above all what hurts the most is the distance from loved ones; family, relatives, and friends.

The only positive aspect of all this, at least for me, is the possibility of dedicating more time to the family and my daughter and also more time to devote to video games. Since this distance is also keeping us away from our friends, I thought of making a list with some of the best turn-based multiplayer games for PC that we can play together with our snack companions.

This is part 1 of the list, of which you can also find the video version on our youtube channel and at the bottom of this article. Within this list of the best multiplayer/competitive PC games, you will find both tactical, MMORPG, card games and sports games. Almost everyone should have working servers where it will be easy to organize and find opponents to face.

As always, your suggestions are essential to keep the list and the next ones up to date, so I invite you to comment both here and on the youtube channel. Furthermore, I remind you that the order is absolutely random.

So let’s start immediately, with the list of the best multiplayer/competitive turn-based PC games.

Phageborn: Online Card Game

Phageborn online

Let’s start immediately with Phageborn, an interesting title released a few months ago, which includes card mechanics set in an immersive dark-fantasy world with powerful avatars, dual resource system, fast-paced solo or team battles and many new features!

Blood Bowl 2

Blood Bowl 2

For many years always on the crest of the wave, surely one of the best turn-based multiplayer for PC with a strong community. An explosive cocktail of turn-based strategy, humour and brutality, adapted from Games Workshop’s famous boardgame.



A tactical and fast free to play game. Unfortunately, reading on the steam forum I see that the servers are not crowded. In any case, the title is really well done. Try to take a look.

Mordheim: City of Damned

Mordheim turn-based

Another tactical turn-based game digitally reported from the Games Workshop world, many positive reviews and original formula. Set in the Warhammer World’s decimated Empire city, Mordheim: City of the Damned is a turn-based tactical game where you lead warbands into bloody and lethal skirmishes.

Checkmate: Battle Arenas

Checkmate competitive tactical game

Not so famous, Checkmate presents tactical but at the same time frenetic battles. Turn-Based Real-Time PvP Game! Enter the hottest battlefield and compete with other players all around the world.Show your divine move to beat the enemy!

Another free to play, original and inspired. Shuffle your cards and ready your dice – Card Hunter is a fresh new card gaming spin on classic tabletop RPGs. Battle your way through a massive campaign solo or with friends and compete with other players in ranked play and tournaments.


AvariaVS online RPG

A competitive Final Fantasy like PVP, with fast fighting. Command 16 unique heroes, wield mind-bending Real Life Debuffs and unleash epic Focusburns to claim victory. Build YOUR party, destroy the enemy, WIN!



The only MMORPG on the list, one of the few if not the only MMORPG with lots of content and continuous updates. Delicious to look at and technically excellent. Free to play but with subscription.

A Druid’s Duel

A druid's duel tactical online game

A Druid’s Duel is a fast paced turn-based strategy game set in a world of Celtic lore where players can create and destroy the board by harnessing the power of nature.

Football, Tactics & Glory

Football Tactics & Glory

For football lovers, like me, a title dedicated to this sport could not be missing. And what a game! It’s an original combination of turn-based strategy and RPG. Create a football team, play matches, earn XP, train skills, learn new classes, upgrade facilities, buy and sell footballers, grow youth, make hard choices. It’s a deep strategy that respects your time. Here our gameplays dedicated to the game

  1. Great article! Some really interesting titles I was not aware of, thank you.

    I would also recommend to have a look at Last Regiment. For me, it has blown all other options out of the water for multiplayer, because of the amazing way they made simultaneous turns work. Really easy to learn but incredible depth. Unfortunately, it is not very well known/small player base. So you will need to bring your own friends for multiplayer or find someone on discord to play with.
