In some gaming communities, most people play only [[WarGaming combat-oriented games]]. [[TropeDecay In that case, "eurogame" might be used to describe any board game that is not combat oriented]] -- even RoboRally, an American game with no victory points nor resource management, and with the possibility of player elimination (though managing to get wiped out is actually something of a feat).

Euro Games tend to have no elimination of players as opposed to some old time favourites like ''{{Monopoly}}'' or ''{{Risk}}'' and usually have a smaller window of time needed, so a game will usually take roughly the same amount each time it is played, often through a set number of turns.
