Bulletin board systems (BBSes) were my gateway into online gaming in the late 80s and early 90s. At 2400 baud over a phone line, it was a much different experience than the kinds of online gaming that I’m doing today. The fact that I could play games with (or against) people from all around my area code grabbed my attention and has kept my attention ever since. My favorite of those games was Trade Wars 2002, a topic that I covered in a blog not too long ago and since publishing that blog, I’ve beein running my own Trade Wars Game Server (TWGS).

Play!

Feel free to use this web-based javascript telnet client to connect to my TWGS serve, but I’d suggest using an honest-to-goodness telnet client to play. Just about any Telnet client will do the trick. However, if you get real serious about playing, specialized telnet clients exist just for TWGS! My current favorite is SWATH and I recommend it.
