The game itself.
What does not
The game crashes unless certain steps are taken before running it.
See extra comments for full details on how to install the game and actually get it running.
What was not tested
Didn't finish the game, but did lose a few matches.
I followed these steps to get it up and running:
export WINEPREFIX=~/wine/prefixes/billions export WINEARCH=win32 winecfg # Set windows to XP # Set a virtual desktop (no sure if necesary) winetricks steam # Install the game via Steam winetricks -q vcrun2017 dotnet40 gdiplus # Find SlimDXRuntime.msi: wine msiexec /i $(find $WINEPREFIX -name SlimDXRuntime.msi) # See above about where to find this. It threw an error but worked anyway for me. wine dotNetFx471_Full_x86_x64_Slim.exe wine regedit # Add the key that Mystic mentioned above. winecfg # Add "api-ms-win-core-xstate-l2-1-0" as native-only override # Remove "InstallScripts" data from 'C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\appmanifest_644930.acf' # cd into the game directory wine TheyAreBillions_x86.exe
