Tabletop wargaming fan
Hey guys I just wanted a quick question I am a tabletop war gamer (warhammer etc) collecting painting etc is what I do so I was hoping there are some linux games based on tabletop war games, not war hammer but anything similar
turn based, dice rolls, stats...etc
You might find something here;
Linux Links - The Linux Portal: Software/Games/Strategy/Warfare
Be advised that some of these games are old, not been updated or even defunct.
That being said.... There should be a few to suit your needs.
You should probably check out "Battle for Wesnoth".
Another good one is MegaMek - java based clone of battletech. There are servers out there with players, but you need to run java and not the iced-tea variant.
Just untar the sun java to a directory and run it from there: $JAVA_HOME/bin/java -jar MegaMek.jar
