    Master of Magic!

    I believe I've mentioned this game here before because I absolutely love it. It's one of the first games I ever played on PC and back when I first tried it I spent way too long messing with autoexec.bat, config.sys, etc., to get enough free uhh primary memory? or something. I have a CD-ROM version that was a re-release some time ago but I see it's also available on GOG: https://www.gog.com/game/master_of_magic

    Last time I messed with it I found it extremely easy to get running using dosbox on windows, mac, and linux. My son even put down his rocket league/rust/whatever for a few days and played this game.

    It's sort of like old civilization but in a fantasy world and also features tactical battles. When your group of units collides with a group of enemy units it brings up a battle screen which is much more engaging than watching the unit squares bounce of eachother (like in old civ games). This can be a bit tedious if you're overpowered and know you'll win anyway, but you can execute battles such that you don't lose the units you care about and with your battle spells you can even win fights where you would otherwise be outmatched. The tactical battle screens can actually be disabled but I never do that.
