Cool Any remember the BBS games?

I remember playing the bulletin Board games. All text based of course. I ran a BBS and still have all the software and the games for them. My favourite game was Lord.

Yep, LORD was the shiznit in the days I spent BBSing.
I used to be part of a BBS called H2H or Head 2 Head games, it was a combo system of a standard bbs service which when dialed into via a gui interface enabled a multiuser/multiroom chat system where users could talk and arrage to connected 1 on 1 via dialup to each other to play deathmatch on doom/duke/quake etc. It was quite a clever system and I had never seen anything like it, as it kept everyones details on record enabling the app to load the game selected and at the same time dial the other users system or vice versa without needing anything to be entered. Was very cool

But most weekdays we spent hours sneakily killing afk players on LORD heh and Global Domination? I think that was the other game we played a lot.

*edit* Can we please remove wombos duplicate thread?

Wombat, what BBS was it? I was mates (and regular modem-play gamer, even back then) with the dude who ran Bodgey BBS (early '90s). Bodgey BBS later went on to become Cyberloom (an ISP) before they got bought out by OzEmail.
I think I remember Lord.
