The Ultimate Time Waster

Filed under
Gaming

Today I have for you something guaranteed to lower your productivity: Wesnoth. This game is one of those free software apps that is of the quality of a proprietary application. Wesnoth is essentially a MO-RTS (multiplayer online real-time strategy) game. It offers two modes: campaign and multiplayer.

In campaign mode, you can pick a storyline from those installed to play. You then are able to play the game in multiplayer style, but with CPU-controlled opponents. It is all turn based, and progresses as follows:

1. You recruit units.
2. You move units.
3. Your units fight the enemy team(s).
4. End of your turn, at which point the opponent teams can have a turn.

Full Story.
