I got my first copy of the Battle for Wesnoth in the CD that used to come with Mac Addict Magazine, before they became Mac Life and lost the monthly CD. Still a great magazine though.

I learned of Wesnoth through Home of the Underdogs. I probably wont be very active on the forums, but I wanted to tell the game-creators that I think they've made an awesome game. Game-creators: you've made an awesome game!

See you out on the multiplay server!

I think some US prisons allow games, but some don't....
Ah, thanks for clarifying.

Ya.. Dave is right, its Singapore and none (Prisoners) have any excess to the computer, only the lucky ones like myself...what more the internet..cant smell it javascript:emoticon(':lol:')
Laughing, anyway, theres one incident where an inmate who was a office boy got caught playing games, and he was immediately fired and locked up never to taste (freedom) work again. javascript:emoticon(':(')
Sad

My friend told me about it, though he didn't pronounce the name right, so I spent 4 hours searching the web for "Battle for Wencesnaus."

I was bored and browsing the Games category at Arch User Repository in an attempt to find something interesting. The attempt was successful ;)

Wikipedia.com :D

I was looking for a multiplayer Tactics game and Wesnoth popped up as freeware. Didn't hesitate for a second to check it out.

I think I was looking for warlords clones, and somehow managed to stumble across this while google-ing. or at least I have the initial downloads of this game and freelords on the same day, at similar times.
