What are the best free Mac games? I've spent all my money on Christmas presents.

Best free Mac games: Brogue

Doodle Hangman Free

The visually nicest version of Hangman we've ever seen. It's free to play and a great way to pass time with friends. There are multiple categories of words to choose from, and it's linked in to reference websites that helps you learn more about any words you didn't know.

Dwarf Fortress

Like Brogue, Dwarf Fortress is another ASCII-based open role-playing game. It's incredibly complex, as you explore the world and build your own fortresses. You get an expedition team of dwarfs, and use them to perform tasks like woodworking, farming and craft-making. You then get to dig up the earth, mine for minerals and begin building your own world. Minecraft owes it a bit debt.

Fistful of Frags

If you want a great free first-person shooter then Fistful of Frags is the game to get. It's built upon the Half Life 2 engine, so looks the business and plays incredibly well. It's set in the wild west, and you have old weapons like pistols, rifles and shotguns. Players work in teams, and four teams: Desperados, Vigilantes, Rangers and Banditos compete in each online game. Each game is packed with close-range, tense gunfights.

Full Deck Solitaire

Solitaire is a classic card game that is a great way to while away an hour or two. Full Deck Solitaire is a visually gorgeous card game. It's also easy to pick up and play. Aside from that it's very much the Solitaire we all know and love. A great free addition to the Mac.

Hearthstone is an online game where you collect cards. Sounds boring, but it's got around 40 million players so put your preconceived ideas away. You earn cards by playing daily quests, and then battle your cards in online matches against other gamers (where you can win rare cards). You can't trade cards, you can only win them in battles (this is a good thing as it means there are no scams and fewer robots playing).
