Description

From the Age of Wonders web site:

Age of Wonders is a turn-based game combining the best elements of strategy, adventure and role-playing. It features 12 unique fantasy races, over 50 different heroes with upgradable abilities, dozens of spells and scores of locations to explore. In this game of conquest, players employ strategic and tactical skills to command troops in capturing vital locations and defeating enemies in a captivating single player campaign or compete with friends in multi-player scenarios.

Submitter's notes:

Multiplayer game is either online turn-based or round-robin play by email. Excellent graphics and sound. Game play is very easy to learn, and playing each turn is quick and easy. Has some decent depth to it. Lacks automated/random map generation, but there are dozens (hundreds?) of maps available for download.
