Download both the program and the GUI client. You need java to use the GUI client.

To play, first load the GUI by typing "java Dvonnboard" in the directory of the GUI client, Dvonnboard. Once the Dvonnboard is loaded then you can double click and run dvonner.exe and from the within the prompt of dvonner.exe, type:
/gui 1 to enable GUI. Type in begin and end coordinates (like d4dh) to make moves--there are no mouse inputs.

Rise of the West -- Empires of the Middle Ages the PC game

========================================================================
A PC clone of the Empires of the Middle Ages.

The rise.doc documentation.
Quote:
This game isn't too easy to figure out on your own, so here are a few tips to get you started...

CHOOSING THE GAME LENGTH AND OPTIONS
------------------------------------

Allow Minor Powers: Controls the creation of minor powers. If not selected, no minor powers will enter the game.

Allow Trading of Holding Cards: With this option set, players are free to trade holding cards.

Reduced Language Differences: Reduces the effect of languages in the game.

Reduced Operations: Increases the difficulty by reducing the number of operations that each player is allowed in a turn.

Free Running: Speeds up the game by reducing the delays between computer operations (not recommended for new players).

THE TOP BAR UNDER THE PULLDOWN MENUS
------------------------------------

The circle on the left shows the remaining operations, as well as the empire color. To the right is the name, the stature values (millitary, administration, and diplomatic). Next is a color-coded language box with religion icon (religion and language play a big part in the game). Then comes a list of your current holding cards, which can be played in the game. Finally, the amount in your treasury is at the right side of the bar.

This should be enough to get you started... if you've played wargames before (which you probably have if you're playing this), you can figure out the rest easily. If you really like the game and you CAN'T figure the rest out, go out and buy it. The instructions are detailed and they'll help you out.

Abstract game of enclosure with both tactical and strategic dimensions. People keep adding this to "hidden gems" geeklists here on BGG and on Boardspace you can check out why that is. May be accessible to people who don't usually like abstracts, in part because it's not one of those purely tactical games where brute-force calculation makes for unbeatable bots.

========================================================================

Such a complex system. Hard to believe this was a gamebook.

Six book are interconnected. You can start from one book and walk travel across books. Thus you have six different starting points which allows you to adjust difficulty level by using a high level character from a high number book like five and traveling to book one.

Clever system, uses ticks mark system to keep count and track time.

Flash Duel 2E has been added to Yomi and Puzzle Strike (Third Edition) among the games you can play on Fantasy Strike Online. It's essentially an uncredited expansion of Knizia's En Garde set in the Fantasy Strike world.

If you play for free you cannot freely choose which character to play, but as a nice touch, the character you can play changes with time. You can also play against any character, and also try out the dragon raid and team battle modes, but not the "custom clockwork" function (since that would be equivalent to choosing characters freely).

AI strength:
meeplemeeple Will beat a newcomer but will probably mostly fall to an experienced player.

Interface:
meeplemeeplemeeplemeeple Good but not flawless. May improve since the game is relatively new.

Operating Systems:
Browser-based using the Unity plugin

Software Types:
Client connects to a central server

Licenses:
Free (pay to remove restrictions)

Another Sid Sackson masterpiece! Consider by many to be one of the best abstract strategy game.

How Gears Dice Works
Race cars accelerate by changing to higher gear dice. There are six gear dice and higher the gear dice the greater the movement.

Each gear has its own die, from 4 sided to 30 sided dice

dice - gear - values on each face
d4 - 1st - 1,1,2,2
d6 - 2nd - 2,3,3,4,4,4
d8 - 3rd - 4,5,6,6,7,7,8,8
d12 - 4th - 7, 7, 8, 8, 9, 9, 10, 10, 11, 11, 12, 12
d20 - 5th - 11, 11, 12, 12, 13, 13, 14, 14, 15, 15, 16, 16, 17, 17, 18, 18, 19, 19, 20, 20
d30 - 6th - 21, 21, 21, 22, 22, 22, 23, 23, 23, 24, 24, 24, 25, 25, 25, 26, 26, 26, 27, 27, 27, 28, 28, 28, 29, 29, 29, 30, 30, 30

black standard d20 (1-20) is used for damage and starting positions.

Therefore a race car has 50% chance of moving 4 spaces in 2nd gear (d6) while in 3rd gear has 25% chance of moving 7 spaces.

======================================================================
The game is in French, to select English:
Edit > Options > Language

Play with four or more AI players.
More players increases player interactions as turns become crowded and more difficult.
Learning points

* Controlling randomness by choosing which die to roll. A constant press-your-luck choices of how fast can I turn without blowing up?

* Notice how unlike video games, you can control multiple avatars (cars).

Javascript version. Hard AI can get a little obnoxious as two pieces may just be moving back and forth, but I have a feeling that is all just part of the game.
