Real board games

Tantek is playing real board games. “Face to face. With people. Without a computer.” Meanwhile, my LUG are trying to put together a multiplayer gaming session. There don’t seem to be very many (at all) multiplayer net games that:

  • are fun
  • are free, so we don’t all have to go out and buy Unreal Tournament
  • don’t require an amazing 3D graphics card

so it looks like we might well be settling on PrBoom, one of the Doom clones. Packaged for Debian, too, as is the shareware level, so it’s easy to install. There were a distinct shortage of other game suggestions, apart from Peter Oliver suggesting the tank one that looks like a Spectrum FreeScape game :-)


I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
