Free Game Friday 7/5/19: Battle for Wesnoth

Today's free game is Battle for Wesnoth, a free (and open-source!) turn based strategy game with quite a lot to offer; as of this writing, there are six major factions, sixteen campaigns of varying difficulty and hundreds of different units to utilize, and that's not even counting all the optional fan-made content.  There is quite a bit more of a random element to the game than, say, Advance Wars (with units getting widely varying numbers of attacks per turn and damage ranges), but the ability to carry over units from previous stages into new ones, retaining any levels they may have earned, helps offset this to a degree.  If you're looking for something fun, packing a ton of longevity and heavily inspired by the classic games Master of Monsters and Langrisser, this one's certainly worth a try.
