List Rules Games don't have to be platform exclusive, as long as they were released for iPad at some time.

If you've owned an iPad at any time during your life, then it's safe to say there were probably a few strategy games that you've downloaded. Using your brain to solve problems and battle opponents is a ton of fun, and with turn-based games, puzzles, tower defense games and more, there are unlimited options to explore. With so many choices to pick from, there was never a shortage of games to play for fans of the genre.

Since some games were much better than others, we've decided to rank the best iPad strategy games of all time. This list will feature the most popular and best selling strategy games that were released for iPad. While many of these games were console exclusive, we're allowing non-exclusives to be a part of the list as well. Games on this poll include Farm Story and World of Goo. Vote for your favorite video games below, and feel free to add any that you think deserve to be on the list.
