- Up Front is without a doubt my "desert island" game.
One web site of note is www.ufpbw.com. That stands for "Up Front
play by web". This site has a decent web interface that lets you
play the game against a human opponent. The web site looks
cumbersome at first...it's all text and cgi...but it does the job
quite nicely once you learn it. I've been playing an UF campaign
game using it with an old buddy living in NJ. Another great
reference while you're playing online is
http://home.rochester.rr.com/djb/UpFront/Rulebook/ An online
versiion of the rulebook.
I've been playing this game for many years and would be happy to
teach it to anyone. I will put it in my backpack so it will
regularly be found at B2O.
Regarding MMP's update, I've been anticipating this for too long.
It's 2002 now and I don't see "UF2000" being published any time
soon. Information from MMP is extremely vague and sparse. I think
that there may be some rules changes (most likely billed
as "clarifications")...inevitable, I think, since I know it is their
intention to rewrite the rules with a better presentation. In any
case, it's been in my "must buy" column since MMP said they were
taking on the project...I just hope it's not vaporware....
