Slugathon is a free (licensed under the GPLv2; see slugathon/docs/COPYING.txt) clone of the classic Avalon Hill boardgame Titan. The focus is on playing against other humans across the Internet. Installation is currently pretty easy on Linux (install some dependencies with your package manager then run a command), and kind of a pain on Windows and Mac OS. (I had .exe files for Windows, but Github removed their downloads feature so they're gone for now. Let me know if you need them.) I'm working to make it easier everywhere. Note that pip can't install Slugathon because it can't install PyGTK. But once you have PyGTK installed, pip should be able to do the rest. 1. Install all the dependencies listed at http://wiki.github.com/dripton/Slugathon/dependencies. See http://wiki.github.com/dripton/Slugathon/Building-on-Linux http://wiki.github.com/dripton/Slugathon/Building-on-Mac-OS http://wiki.github.com/dripton/Slugathon/Building-on-Windows for details. 2. Clone Slugathon with Git, or download and uncompress a zip or tar version. 3. Run "python setup.py install" to install the game. This will probably require root permissions, so use su or sudo. 4. In one terminal, run "slugathon server -n" 5. In a second terminal (on the same or a different computer) run "slugathon client". Pick the IP or hostname of the computer where you ran the server, and connect. 6. If you want multiple human players, then in a third terminal, (on the same or a different computer), run "slugathon client", picking a different player. (You can add up to a total of 6 players.) 7. Chat with each other in the Lobby window. 8. Have the first player form a game, then have the other player(s) join it. If you want AI players, then set "Min players" to more than the number of human players, and AIs will join in. When all humans have joined, have the first player click "Start Game Now", and play some Titan. For documentation, see the Wiki at http://wiki.github.com/dripton/Slugathon
