Games where the play involves three dimensional reasoning, more complex than making stacks or climbing hills. 2D Games with a limited 3D component such as stacked boards or upright board instead of lying flat do not qualify. Simple 3d dexterity games such as Jenga, while wonderful, do not qualify.

Definetly a 3D Game. 3D Vector based movement and firing arcs make this game interesting and challenging.

A blast from the past:

From the 'geek: "It is played on a map which displays 74 star sytems in a three-dimensional 'sphere' of space measuring roughly 40 light years in diameter, with our home system at the center. A grid of hexagons printed over the map is used to regulate movement and position of pieces."

When you played this game, you could see your enemies' position on the map, but had no exact idea where he was in the third dimension...

a little surprised at the non-inclusion of this.

The game relies on 3-d aspects for strategies in the game.
Concepts such as line of sight, height of attack, and indeed the ability of a model to physically fit into the space they want to go into.

Unfortunately I couldn't find an image which does the game justice towards this list. Ideally an image showing a dragon trying to fit into a cave would be fitting.

One of my favorites, and the only GW ame I still play. This and Necromunda rely much on all three dimensions.

the board a is pile of tiles, built arbitrarily at the start

This game is about constructing loops in 3 dimensions. You apparently score based on the size of the loop you complete. (I have the game, but am missing the rules... so I'm not quite sure)
