I was in search for free online games and stumbled upon this. :D

Played the tutorial and immediately fell in love with it.

I googled "Free Mac OS X TBS", and found a list of 20 odd games. A few stood out, and I checked them out, and of those few Wesnoth became a mainstay. It has since been introduced by me to a fair few people, mostly in the context of multiplayer.

Found out through GCI 2010. Wesnoth looked interesting, so I downloaded it so I could try to do some playtest tasks, and got hooked. :D

I found Wesnoth on freewaregenius.com, but after I found it there I started seeing it everywhere.

I found about Wesnoth through a czech website about computer games (link) in their archive of free games. The version of BfW included was an ancient one (from times when arcane was holy and Dark hordes were mainline). I downloaded because it had 90% review and liked the game except I found it really hard (this version didn't allow save/loading, so I didn't get further than 3rd scenario of HttT). However, the article was from 2004 and the game listed itself as version 0.8.8. As it was year 2008 I wondered if there is a new version avaible. So I found the main Wesnoth website and learned that ther is version 1.4.7 and it promised many new units and campaigns. And when I found that this version enables save/load abuse I was elated :lol2: After playing most of mainline campaign I tried to make my own. I started making it for 1.6.1, but because I was only slowly learning WML, version 1.8.4 was released when it was finished. Only then I registered to the forums (so people can tell me how to put it on the add-on server and give me feedback).
