Diplomacy!
The Russian Campaign (excellent game)
Wooden Ships and Iron Men (pretty good)
Squad Leader (tons of fun)
King Maker! (superb game for 4-8 players, you're never out of the game)

Or Angriff! on the garage floor with micro-scale models.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angriff!

Those were the days.
If I knew of an assisted living facility that stocked all these old games I'd give up this life and move in tomorrow!
Absolutely! Avalon Hill had some great titles.

I discovered a "virtual crack" in the map for the Battle of The Bulge which if exploited precisely enabled the German player to capture Bastogne in two moves. That is of course a key to winning the game for either side.

One lite game that I play occasionally is called Flow/Stream . There are many other games too, Sokoban comes to my mind now.
