CardBoard Card Deck Simulator

CardBoard is an interesting project. It’s a bit of software that simulates a deck of cards in a digital playspace, and allows you to play with friends over a local area network. Keep an eye on this one, because remote playing via the internet is sure to come.

Dwarf Fortress Computer Game

Dwarf Fortress is a free video game with two primary modes: Fortress mode, in which the player takes control of a group of dwarves and attempts to construct a successful and wealthy subterranean fortress in a mountain, and Adventurer mode, which places the player in the shoes of an adventurer as they wander the world and do battle with various creatures.

The game is implemented in text-graphics, and is donationware, so you can download and play for free, while the developers ask for donations to continue their work.
