Anyway, what do you all think of Wesnoth - is it worth getting into at some point?
Do you mean is it worth playing or worth joining the community/project? As far as playing goes Wesnoth is awesome, not only because it's a fun game to play, but also because there is a constant stream of new user-content available for free, ensuring you'll always have something new to play. On the iPad/iPod versions, a new add-on is released every month. On the desktop version, new add-ons appear on the add-on server every week. And you can even create your own add-ons by learning a simple markup language that even a programming-illiterate like myself can stumble through without too much headache.
If you're talking about the community/project, Wesnoth is great. I've been a member since December of last year, and the project has moved forward vastly just in that amount of time. The community in general is a good one, too.
It's probably at least worth checking out.
