If you want to know what is Forex Trading, you can try with AVAFX. The website is available at www.avafx.com. Although the application is for Win*, but you still can run it in Ubuntu with Wine. I’ve tried it and it run smoothly with Wine.

I will not explain how to register an account, here. It’s a standard web register. So, there is no difficulty at all. Before we start, I assume that you have an account in AVAFX (Online Trading Center) already. If not than you can try with ‘Free Practice Account’. It’s a 21-day free practice account. Just click ‘Register Now’ and follow all the instructions.

For the starter you will have US$ 100.000 practice account. When you ready for the real thing, you can begin trading with a minimum US$ 100.

It’s strategic game. In this game you will not find any shooting or destroying any space ships. It’s just text based.

But, I think the game is cool. You have to plan how to attack the enemy, protect your own planet and beware of the enemy invasion to other planets.

For the beginning you will have 10 space ships. Every time you end your turn, your space ship will increase based on the production capacity (usually 10, but depend on the planet). You are in planet A and your enemy in planet B.

The keys to win the war are:

  • Always monitor the number of the enemy space ships.

  • Don’t send lots of your space ship at the beginning of the game.

  • Always attack the planet B with 2 space ships.

  • You have to attack the nearest planet to own it. If you own a planet, you will have their space ship industry to support your space ships army.

  • When you own a planet, don’t use their space ship directly. Wait until their space ships number is bigger than your enemy. Otherwise your enemy may take it back.

  • The more planets you own the easier you can defeat your enemy.
