Thank you again, LQ, for this category! It makes it so much easier for me to find open source games that I'm too busy to even hear about otherwise.

I am now officially addicted to Battle for Wesnoth . I've been reading their forums and they are talking about LQ.org members award. I wonder... wouldn't it be cool if somebody added a "Awards" section for Battle for Wesnoth on the wikipedia:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wesnoth

I know, I know I could do it... but I am too lazy, plus my English sucks and somebody would have to correct it anyway .

I think this would be good for both Wesnoth and LQ.org... in my honest opinion

xtris seems nice but I prefer nct (n-colored tetris) and bastet.

With only one color nct is just regular tetris, but with many the game is much more challenging and fun. Each color has a weight so the heavier colors will cover lighter colors and only full lines of one color will disappear.

bastet, of course, if the famous tetris that gives you the worst possible blocks.

I made a custom package to install bastet, nct, and braincurses (a mastermind clone), and these are a very nice addition to my console games collection. All three use ncurses. I can post my package if anyone if interested.

The site for bastet is http://fph.altervista.org/prog/bastet.shtml.

I don't remember the sites for nct and braincurses, but you can use their freshmeat pages

I think it's safe to say Danger from the deep it's one of the best games ever, that can be played under Linux. The music it's great, the graphics are good and acceptable for a 21 century game. Too bad because it's open source the project evolves soo damn slowly. I'm waiting for that time, as it is intended by it's producers, when i could play this game online in a multiplayer mode. But until than it's still nice to explore the ocean in an U boat submarine and practice my skills sinking some allies ships.
