This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Has anyone played one of Flying Buffalo's PBM game recently? I think I'd like to give it a shot, but I'd like to see if anyone here has done it before and what the experience was like.

Wow, they still have PBM games around? Like...through the snail mail? I used to play such games back in the day, but that was long before the interwebz.

A nice education blog.

From what I've read on their website, they do both.

I'd be interested in this, too. :) Now, I live on the other side of the globe, but if it's possible, yeah, I'd love to make that work.

I'd love to hear about their PBM games - either past or present.

Back in the ancient times, I knew a dude who played various wargames via the mail. I can't wrap my head around that level of patience between turns!!
