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).
