Definitely going to to an episode of my retro show in this. Doesn't have all the games I played when I was younger but has several, including Solar Realms and Trade Wars.

Spent many a day/night on BBS' and helped run a couple. Tons of fun, lots of drama, lots of friendships. I miss those days.....TW2002 and LORD.

As an ex-BBS sysop I have to say this makes me misty. LORD, BRE, etc. those were great games. So innovative for the time. I think I still enjoyed playing MUDs more than any graphical games today.
Damn if that isn't true. I ran a head-node for fidonet too, damn if I didn't love BRE. It was probably the first game I played as a kid that got me involved in a larger community, the board I used to play on used to have a get together for weekly strategy meetings.
