For a fun single player experience, can't go far wrong with Jagged Alliance 2 + the 1.13 patch mod.

Just found a diamond in the rough in Zatikon.

http://www.zatikon.com/

Check it out. Free to play the basic version.

Similar to dom3 in regards to the level of complexity and ridiculous amount of possible strategies.

It's played on a chess/checker board. You and your opponent have a single castle. The goal is to move one of your pieces onto your opponents castle.

For pieces the game uses a variety of units (fantasy themed). I'm playing with one of the expansions and so I have access to ~70 different pieces each with their own special abilities.

You can create armies based on a cost point system, or play random games where you and your opponent are assigned a randomly generated army.

I'm playing under the user id Gorphun.

Enjoy!

**I forgot to mention that there's a 90? sec timer on each turn. If the counter runs out you lose!

forgot to mention that while the base game (30pieces) is free the expansions cost money

I have no idea what the set up is with chronic logic but you can get one of the expansions (+40 pieces) from gamersgate for $11

Most of my time goes into Everquest (still the best MMO in my opinion, all the others got boring pretty quickly). It sucks that it's all so top-end now after being around for 11 years and getting leveled up to the top end is kinda' boring.

Other than EQ and dominions, I occasionally will play

Patrician III
Pharaoh
Master of Orion 3
Dragon Age (getting old fast)
or Mass Effect II (beat it recently, thinking about going back and replaying on the "New Game +" setting)

I'm playing the DROD series (well, KDD and TCB, I finally beat JtRH), and Battle for Wesnoth, though I intend to pick up Mount and Blade again soon, and maybe play a bit of Jack of All Trades, a space game that is nice to kill time, though nothing on anything listed above. DROD is pretty awesome, if freakishly difficult at time.

Raising the dead in order to explain my absence recently...
I am horribly addicted to an indie game called Minecraft.

Here is a fan-made trailer:


The last time I was this hooked on a game was when I started playing Dominions.

MineCraft is mind-blowingly cool. But sounds ridiculous when you try to explain it to people. I'm loving it too.

Yeah, Minecraft can be a lot of fun. I like it because I just love exploring. Since Minecraft generates map as you move farther, it's great for me

Of course it's just an alpha now, but I'd recommend people watching some vids and maybe giving it a shot. As it is alpha it's half off; only 10€


These got me interested:

X's Adventures in Minecraft - 001 - Shelter from the Black of Night
Mine The Gap

It looks like someone created a FPS version of DwarfFortress.. without the dwarves. Hrrrm.

And without elves to burn, drown, and/or whack to pieces. And without nobles to burn or drown or both. Still, rather amusing. Never really got all that much into it though.

Dwarf Fortress on the other hand...
Along with Dwarf Fortress and Dominions 3 I mainly play Paradox Interactive games, currently mostly Victoria II, but also EUIII(Magna Mundi) and some of the older titles.
