Freecol: An open source, free clone of Sid Mier's Colonization
Since Mastergoose expressed interest in this game I'm posting a link here.

The game's called Freecol, and it's a free, open source game based on Sid Meier's classic, Colonization.

This is an empire builder and resource management game. It takes place in the colonial era and you control 1 of 8 European nations who are seeking riches in the new world. You can be either the:
  1. English
  2. French
  3. Dutch
  4. Spanish
  5. Swedish
  6. Danish
  7. Russian
  8. Portuguese


You build colonies, make trade or war with the other European nations and can either trade with or loot and pillage the native peoples.

If this game looks interesting to you visit their website at Freecol

I've been playing this game for years and definitely count it among my favorites.

No problem.

Maybe we can swap stories about our freecol colonial experiences then...
