Hex Empire

Ever since I was a little kid and found my older brother's abandoned Avalon Hill Tactics II game in our basement closet I've had a fondness for strategy war games.  I couldn't tell you the number of hours I spent playing Walter Bright's classic cursor based Empire on my old Leading Edge PC.  When I finally got a color monitor  I even wrote a DOS TSR that would color the screen cells so water was blue and land was green.

The turn based strategy genre has fallen out favor with mainstream gamers but I still occasionally find flash games that scratch that old itch.  Here's a really fun little game with a lot of strategic depth of play.

The games's not really playable at the size I could embed it and keep the formatting of the blog, so I'll just provide you a picture and a link.
