Any views on the points I raised in my message entitled "postal game rules"
To summarise these were:
What do we do about copyrighted commercial games? Is a disclaimer that
someone should own the game OK?
I suggested intially putting links to sites sporting rules, as Adrian
Walding has done at
This would ideally later be replaced by an "official" rules bank held on
Steven's site, preferably consistently formatted (the rules on my site
http://fp.sholing.f9.co.uk/ are a complete dog's dinner in this respect -
some are nicely presented with a few piccies, and others are just imported
Word files that look pretty knob, especially when tables were tabbed text
rather than proper tables in the original).
I also asked if there should be a tie-in with Tony Reeves' Directory of
I also mentioned collecting content - many game rules circulate as low-grade
photocopies which can't be OCR'd, so some poor sod has to type it all in. In
