We used to play a lot of XBlast when I was at university.. Pretty fun, pretty
straight forward.

XBattle is a game which I've often wanted to try multiplayer (I've only ever
played against the AI).  It's an idealised 2d strategy game where you care
greatly about supply lines.  It almost resembles a game of plumbing --- funnel
the most troops through your network to where they are needed :-)
