Battle for Wesnoth overview

Battle for Wesnoth is a turn-based strategy game with a fantasy theme.

Build up a great army, gradually turning raw recruits into hardened veterans. In later games, recall your toughest warriors and form a deadly host against whom none can stand! Choose units from a large pool of specialists, and hand-pick a force with the right strengths to fight well on different terrains against all manner of opposition.

Wesnoth has many different sagas waiting to be played out. Fight to regain the throne of Wesnoth, of which you are the legitimate heir... step into the boots of a young officer sent to guard a not-so-sleepy frontier outpost... vanquish a horde of undead warriors unleashed by a foul necromancer, who also happens to have taken your brother hostage... guide a band of elvish survivors in an epic quest to find a new home.

200+ unit types. 16 races. 6 major factions. Hundreds of years of history. The world of Wesnoth is absolutely huge and limited only by your creativity - make your own custom units, compose your own maps, and write your own scenarios or even full-blown campaigns. You can also challenge up to 8 friends - or strangers - and fight in epic multi-player fantasy battles.

The download link for 1.13.7 is not for Mac, use the "Developer website" link. Mac OSX's current version to this date 1.12.5.

This right here is the shit! Man, what a game. I'm still in awe. Addictive as hell and fun all the while, Battle for Wesnoth is a classic in my books. It was kinda tricky to learn at the start but I love it, nevertheless. Its free and has a good storyline. Mr.Developer take a bow!

Despite the listed system requirements of 10.5 Leopard, v1.10.3 works fine on my USB 2 iMac running 10.4 Tiger. Though it might not be a bad idea to hang onto the previous version just in case.

I have had nothing but crashes since switching to Lion. It always crashes when I switch to full screen mode. Does anyone else have this problem.
