Default Best Turn Based Game

Hey All,

A few friends and myself are looking for a turn based game to play together. We are all geographically far apart, so we were thinking that a turn based game would be a good way to get together, have some fun and have time to chat every once and a while.

What are your favorite turn based games that offer internet multiplayer?

Thanks!

There are no turn based games that offer multi player.

Ahem, I can think of Civ 3: Play the World (even though I hear it sucks), and I know there's a lot of other games that are turn based as well (I just can't remember them right now). I guess there's Risk, if nothing else...

one of my personal favorites is star trek birth of the federation. if star trek is your thing. you get to control either the romulans, klingons, federation, ferengi, or cardassians. set your inteligence agencies to work against the other races, wage war with the federation, raid enemy systems, conduct planetary bombardment of earth etc...

Moonbase Commander is a good turn based game that is sort of reminiscent of Scorched Earth. A couple friends and I played it at a lan, good fun.

It doesn't even require a high-end system. Hope this helps.

Worms:World Party (I think thats the newest 2d) or Worms 3D. Both are pretty fun turn based games when you play with other ppl. I perfer the 2d worms over the 3d because I've been playing since the original dos worms which is still a fun game :P

Team 17 is also coming out with Worms Forts sometime soon.

You can also play card games or other board on yahoo games that are turned based and pretty fun.
