IRSWalker Posted December 11, 2001 Report Share Posted December 11, 2001 Some Paper/board games have one fantastic advantage over "computer games" convert them to a PBEM form and you can play them at work unless your mail admin is very sharp.I play email Diplomacy and email Chess regularly in my lunchbreak. I would love to see some of my favourite games converted to PBEM. Car Wars, Warhammer 40K and AD&D (now that would be hard!) over email would be a fantastic complement to the real-time full resource games that, realistically, can't be played at work.In my last days of DMing, I wrote a computer program (on my MSX! ) that kept track of game time, remembered all the rule tables for me (this was pre second edition) and allowed me to make dice rolls against those tables. By keeping track of the time, it also implemented the weather system from the Wilderness Survival Guide, rules which fell into the "beautiful but never used" category of so many of them. Unimplemented plans for it included keeping track of the NPCs, which would have been cool.Hmmmmmm, now I am thinking PBEM AD&D......could it be done?Smiley Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
