It seems like whenever AH or SPI boardgames come up in one of the forums there is a lot of chatter and interest. So I'll ask here...
There are several fans of SPI's old Swords & Sorcery wargame. that post here Would people be interested in setting up a ladder, or just informal PBEM or PBP play? I tried to set up a ladder on the yahoo SnS group but there were not enough interested parties.
all the old SPI games have an id in each hex making PBEM play easy. It is turn based and I have played it PBEM w/ no trouble at all. Several of the scenarios are small and don't take up much of the board, and since you have all the positions written out, you can always clean up the game and set it up later.
What do you have to do to access this cyberboard and how do you use it?
It's free program. People create a file for a game, called a gamebox, with the map and all the counters and cards. Each player takes turns moving their counters and then email the results of their turn to the next players. It doesn't do any rules checking or anything like that but you can add annotations or die rolls during your turn. When your opponent get's the file, he can view your moves one at a time and if you make a mistake he can accept a partial turn and send you the file back to correct.
I haven't played a multi-player game with it but I have played some complicated games like Totaler Kreig or Magic Realm with it.
