Wanted to share my favorite FREE game, that is on the web.
Neptunes pride is awesome. Long term rounds, it's not turn based, and it's so rewarding.
Here is the official description:
"The object of a game of Neptune's Pride is to capture half of all Stars in the Galaxy.
The game is real-time but played over several weeks. You can log in at any time of the day to check the progress of your fleets, view the results of battles, and issue new orders.
Each Star you control will automatically build new ships, raise money for upgrades, and research new technologies.
Your job is to negotiate with the other players, dispatch your fleets to capture new stars, and choose where and how to upgrade your existing stars and technology.
Neptune's Pride is not like any other 4x strategy game because its streamlined mechanics allow players to focus on high level strategic decisions and diplomacy. "
