Well I love all Dos games, but I like Crystal Caves very much, as well as Pixel Ships and Liero.

Meh, I usually switch to Fundy for about 10 years or so and raise $20,000+ with the rediculusly high tax rates before switching back to Democracy and spending it all. ;) (highest level/score: Prince, 257%)

Say, Joh Power, I wonder if you've heard of this place called Civ Fanatics...
