    Main Page - Globulation2

    Glest - The Free Real-Time Strategy Game

    Bos Wars

    Tribal Trouble

    If you have Warcraft II, and want to play that, then you should know that it works perfectly well under Wine. (WarCraft III as well)

    Depends on what distro you are using (it is probably in most repositories). I use gentoo so all I have to do is:

    emerge boswars

    Here are instructions for ubuntu
