An interesting multiplayer turn based game is laser squad nemesis (www.lasersquadnemesis.com).. I really like it - two players send in their orders, and they're resolved simultaneously on the server. However, it's a free trial then you have to subscribe. I'm not sure about the details though, before you got unlimited play with one race and three of the maps, but now they introduced the trial system and I'm not sure how it works.

Master of Orion 2. Its IPX I think so you will have to find a copy of Kali.

You could also try digging up VGA Planets, its an old space TBS that was designed to be played over email or snail mail by exchanging "turn" files on floppy disks.

That's an awesome game. I used to play it with a friend in the UK a couple of years ago on 33.6k and it was fine.

I seem to remember Stars! being a pretty fun space conquer turn based strategy game. The company that made (Crisium) went out of business though (I think) so you might have a bit of trouble finding it. The shareware version should still be out there somewhere though.

The graphics were pretty basic but the gameplay was pretty good.

I think you had to use email to take turns though. Not sure if anyone ever made a mod for it.

Yeah, those are awesome games... with the exception of Heroes IV, IMHO was a complete flop. It's like they took out all of the great things about Heroes I,II and III (such as powerful heroes, awesome quest items, etc.) and just left a big turn based mess.

Seriously? Man, I didn't like that they made the heroes and items so weak. Once of my favorite aspects of the previous games was building up a super powerful hero that could wipe out lesser heroes with smaller armies... Heroes IV ruined that.

What aspects did you like better?

Well it's hard to say. I sorta liked that the heroes are more or less just really powerful normal units (when they get level up and get cool armor etc), which can cast spells if they're a mage type. Maybe it's because I've mostly played Heroes IV with my girlfriend, and didn't with Heroes III.
