Reminisce about those old games and dedicated gaming hardware

BBS Door Games

Postby Avon on Mon Jul 28, 2014 9:40 pm

Hi there.

I have just set up Legend of the Dragon (LORD) as an inter-BBS game on my BBS and in the process of hooking up Barren Realms Elite (BRE) as well.

If you would like to play them, I could use a few users/players to put them through their paces. The inter-BBS league has players from the USA and Europe taking part.

I'd also be curious as to which other BBS DOOR games you think I should get and install?

Any questions, comments are most welcome.

Cheers, Paul aka Avon.

VGA planets kept me amused off & on for a good 10 years. Best game I ever bought in terms of value for money. I believe it is now playable over the net for free, there are still a few hosting sites operating but nothing like the good old days.
Another door game was foodfight but that got a bit pointless after a while

Door Games. That's a blast from the past! I recall door games on a few BBSs I frequented in the late 1980s.
