Pacman boardgame 75x75.jpg This is a /v/ related article, which we tolerate because it's relevant and/or popular on /tg/... or we just can't be bothered to delete it.

Wesnoth is a freeware (free to download and play) turn-based strategy PC-game that has a mixed reception from fa/tg/uys.

It is universally agreed it's /tg/ related because the game is set in a fantasy world not too dissimilar with Generic Fantasy Land #3 (Elves are gay and are in woods, Dwarves are grumpy dicks in stone, Orcs are retarded and fighty and Humans are EVERYWHERE!

The Good[edit]

  • It's free.
  • It's balanced.
  • The modding community is big, with the total mod content far greater than the original content.
  • It has RPG elements within it's turn-based structure. (ZOMG! they can LEHVEL!)
  • It's free.

The Bad[edit]

  • The RNG (the random chance hitter thing) can be really annoying and completely ridiculous.
  • The graphics are poor quality (*)
  • It's slow like every other turn-based game.
  • The levels that come with the game are flawed (*)
(*: In true Linuxfag style, the asset files are editable so you could fix these issues yourself if you're willing to learn how.)
