      By all means send off for Danny's booklet. Even if it is aimed at
      Diplomacy I expect much of the information could equally apply to the
      whole gamut of postal games - i.e. explanations of what a zine is,
      deadlines, failure to send in orders etc.

      Mine will feature Diplomacy. It's still the predominant game in the
      postal gaming hobby and "my" booklet will reflect this (I say "my" but
      I'll be using as a basis the previous efforts done by John Dodds and
      Stephen Agar). Other popular postal games such as United, RR, Breaking
      Away and Golden Strider will also figure prominently.
