Poll: What's your favourite setting for board games?

Let's do the time warp again.

We all have our favourite genres of games, whether it's deck-building, social deduction, or wargames. But do you find yourself gravitating towards games with a particular setting? If so, we want to know!

A game's genre doesn't limit its setting - Axis and Allies and Warhammer 40k are both wargames, but the former is set during World War 2 whilst the latter has a futuristic, sci-fi setting. Warhammer Age of Sigmar even extends the genre to fantasy, which perhaps isn't the obvious setting you'd think of when talking about wargames.

Here's Wheels with our pick of the best new board games you should play this year.

Here at Dicebreaker, we try to cover a wide range of games in terms of their genre and setting, so we'd like to know what settings you like in your board games. Got a thing for ancient and medieval history? Or do you like playing games set in the opposite timeframe, a couple of millenium in the future?

I've got to say, I have a particular soft spot for ancient history thanks to Takenoko. Competing as a panda's keeper in an imperial court? Heck yeah. So come have your say and let us know - what's your favourite setting for board games?
