Freecol is a turn-based strategy game inspired by the widely popular Colonization game of the 90s.
It is of course open source and definitely earned the nostalgic value of the commercial predecessor.
It is written in Java, if you are a programmer, make sure to download the source code and read it. The source code is very clean and organized. The source code could definitely be an awesome learning experience for those new in software development world.
As of today the stable version is 0.7.2.
