Talking Recommend your favorite Debian packaged games!

I was just looking through the games category in Synaptic and thought to myself "gee, its hard to tell which games are good here and which I shouldn't waste my time with". Hence the creation of this thread! Recommend your favorite games to others here! Here is the only rule:

1) The game must be included in one of the official Debian package listings

For starters, I'd like to recommend Battle for Wesnoth. Its a very fun strategy game, somewhat similar to Warcraft II in a way I guess. You have leader units that can recruit other units (at the expense of gold) when placed on a castle/recruitment tent and you obtain gold by capturing villages across the map. There are a variety of units which can earn XP and be upgraded to better units. The game features multiple difficulty levels, mutliplayer capabilities, and supports multiple native languages. It also partly inspired me to embark on my own quest to make a game. (points to sig).

I look forward to the suggestions that others will make.

and scorched3d

I'm not sure 'bout the last one, but they're all very cool!

Crack Attack is a tetris like game, netpanzer is a strategy game (VERY cool by the way ), blobwars just remindst me of the old Amiga times
BzFlag... just try it

And Scorched3d, An old classic game, in 3d... Now that's cool

KSokoban - addictively annoying and yet so rewarding sometimes...

Though I am terribly stuck on level 133 in the Microban level collection. Anyone knows how to solve it?
