Any good java books on making turn based strategy games to recommend? I am currently going through a beginner java book and then moving on to another beginner book focused on game programming ("Beginning Java Game Programming"). I looked through Killer Game Programming in Java too. However, these books seem to be focused on action games. Is there a book or online resource on making java turn based strategy games? Thanks.

Not that I know of.

Some things will be the same as other games, some things will be very specific to this kind of game. I wouldn't say it's specific enough to warrant it's own book: if you know how to build a game, then building a TBS is just that. Of course you'll need to think about the design and often there will be multiple ways to do things, or sometimes you won't know how to do something, so that takes research and experimentation/prototyping. But that's the same with any other game type.
