The Battle for Wesnoth is a turn-based strategy game with a fantasy theme.

Build up a great army, gradually turning raw recruits into hardened veterans. In later games, recall your toughest warriors and form a deadly host against whom none can stand! Choose units from a large pool of specialists, and hand-pick a force with the right strengths to fight well on different terrains against all manner of opposition.

Wesnoth has many different sagas waiting to be played out. Fight to regain the throne of Wesnoth, of which you are the legitimate heir... step into the boots of a young officer sent to guard a not-so-sleepy frontier outpost... vanquish a horde of undead warriors unleashed by a foul necromancer, who also happens to have taken your brother hostage... guide a band of elvish survivors in an epic quest to find a new home.

200+ unit types. 16 races. 6 major factions. Hundreds of years of history. The world of Wesnoth is absolutely huge and limited only by your creativity - make your own custom units, compose your own maps, and write your own scenarios or even full-blown campaigns. You can also challenge up to 8 friends - or strangers - and fight in epic multi-player fantasy battles.

"Almost flawless free computer game; far better than most payed ones!"

Been playing this since 2004; about a year after it was initially released. I'm a hardcore fan who has been playing it practically forever. It has gained many great additions and it is definitely heading to a great place! I highly recommend its great depth and complexity; and it's far better than most games that you have to pay for! Not only is it so great, but it is also fairly simple to create your own maps, scenarios, and scripting your own content is not too hard to learn. The game is practically perfect!
