This will be an attempt to list Play-By-Mail games that have existed over the years, some of which are still up and running, today, and many others which have, unfortunately, fallen defunct with the passage of time. This list will be revised and updated on a recurring basis. Be sure to check back from time to time, to see which memories of the Play-By-Mail heyday that this list stirs deep inside you.

The Solo Wargamer's Association and their magazine Lone Warrior is still active. Their website is here: http://theminiaturespage.com/ref/clubs/clubgl.html#swa

I emailed its contact as I wanted a pdf of a couple of articles I wrote in the very early days (late 70s or early 80s). One was on role-playing how the shocked, disoriented and irradiated residents responded to a nuclear attack on a town, the other was about Stockholm's sea defences and archipelago. They are still basically a paper magazine and a sub to 4 issues to Europe costs about 40 dollars a year. Not bad at current dollar exchange rates.

The contact email for any interested is lonewarrior@kc.rr.com (Rich Barbuto).

Grim, I've looked over the boneyard for some time and it seems about played out, so I've gone through some of my memorabilia and found another 30 to 40 more games that can be added. How do you want me to get you that list of games?

Scanning this list just blows my mind. It is hard to believe that all these games had much sweat and blood poured into them by their creators, yet now exist as a bullet in this list. Most probably had vibrant active player communities with their own lore and tales of deeds and misdeeds. It is a shame they all lived and died before the Internet which never forgets.

Nazareth,

There's probably several hundred games that have not been added to that list, yet.

Just e-mail them to me, or just post them here. I'll then revise the list, and if you posted in this thread, I'll likely delete your posting, and add you to the credit list.

Have you seen this page?

Lots of information, but not presented very well.

I have numerous sources that I haven't cited from, yet, Hatch.

I may change it over from the current format to PDF format.

Ack! Not PDF format. That is a terrible format for the web. I suggest a wiki, or an entirely new subforum, with one post per game.

I second the idea of a wiki. You can set up one at http://www.editme.com for free for 30 days. You can also grant editing rights to anyone, or just some folks.
