Someone gifted me a Surface Pro 2 with an i5-4300u and although it is off course very underpowered, it handles stuff like Heroes of Might and Magic V and Age of Wonders like a champ! Really nice to play with touch controls on the go.

Some other games that are absolutely excellent are Darkest Dungeon and Warhammer 40k: Gladius as well as Stellaris.

Looking for more recommendations... I also like games like Rome Total War or Empire Total War. Even when such games don't run at 30fps, even 20 fps is totally acceptable in some cases.

Thanks!

I still like Alpha Centauri and MOO 2 among these kinds of games. They run on pretty much any PC.

Into the Breach is a fantastic tactics game. One of the best games of the last ten years.

XCOM Enemy Unknown is a stone cold classic. The expansion pack, Enemy Within, even adds touch controls, if you want to play in tablet mode!

Pick up the new Shadowrun Trilogy (Returns/Dragonfall/Hong Kong) from Hare Brained Schemes. All three games come out to ~60 hours of playtime, have a superb setting, fun stories, will run on a potato, and are solid turn based RPGs.

Dirt cheap during most sales as well (such as the current Steam Lunar Sale)

i play almost exclusively turn based games. i recently finished Gear: Tactics which is great, and now playing Disciples: Liberation and its loads of fun.
i don't know about running games on a Surface 2, but there are many great games such as the King's Bounty series (The Legend, and expansions, haven't played 2 yet),
Wasteland 2 and 3, Mutant Year Zero, Fallout Tactics, i bet you can also find the Disgaea series for the PC to run on the Surface.

there are many "rogue-like deck-builders" these days which are mostly 2D games so i bet they can work on the Surface 2. i played Monster Train last year and it was fun.
i can get more recommendations, just give me a direction you're interested in.

EDIT: for the hardcore TBSers out there, look for Warhammer's Mordheim: City of the Damned, that is a very challenging strategy game with team building and perma-death.
