Acknowledgement
  • We humbly acknowledge that old games are always better because inventing games is one of two human activities excluded from progress. The other one is the brain activity of people who subscribe to that point of view.
  • You can play here for free. The Arena is dedicated to high strategy only, and features a rating system.
    Collateral damage can be found in The Pit.
  • We're more committed to strategy games than to tactical ones. Here's the difference:
    Strategy games have strategies varied enough to allow different styles of play, tactics varied enough to induce their own terminology, and a structure that allows advantageous sub-goals to be achieved as calculable signposts along the way.
    Tactical games have strategies that are either fairly obvious (however deep), like Pente, or fairly opaque, like Othello.
