From: Southeastern Penna.
There is a free wargame currently available called Field of Strategy 2. The game operates on four levels - tactical and divisional battles and operational and strategic campaigns. At the moment(more is always in the works)the following historical eras are represented: Napoleonic(all four levels), World War II(all four levels), medieval(tactical battles), 18th century(tactical battles)and modern(divisional battles and a strategic campaign). The download package includes map and army/scenario editors. One caveat: this game's graphics won't win any awards; however, I think they get the job done well enough. So, then, to get the game go to Yahoo! Search and in the dialog box type in "field of strategy game"(uppercase not required). On the first results page you should see a link for FOS2 and the TPGames start page. Click on that link and when you get to the TPGames start page you will see the download link that you need. This page also has a link to the FOS2 forums in English and French(the FOS2 creator and forums moderator is French)so after you have tried out the game you can sign up for the English forums and, I hope, keep me some company. It appears that a lot of people have signed up for these forums recently but they all seem to be going to the French forums, which makes enough sense considering that FOS2 has previously gotten very little publicity outside France. Anyway, good luck and enjoy!!
