Electronic Cardboard v2.1

Spotlight Article Graphic

Resurrected by designer Rich Hogen, "Electronic Cardboard" was originally conceived as a Game Assist Program (GAP) for the Play-By-Electronic-Mail (PBEM) community. It was created to address the need for non-destructive overlay of bitmaps atop bitmaps. Although features are based on gaming needs, EC may be universally useful for overlaying tasks.
In the modern computing environment EC can be used in conjunction with Netmeeting or Webex or similar desktop sharing software to play a game in real time, i.e. synchronously. Gaming references in this Help file assume asynchronous play (e.g. PBEM).

Publisher Site

A remake/redesign of the old Cold War classic, updated for the 21st century. The original was owned by many wargamers because it was "Risk-like" enough to play with the kids, but had a bit more substance than Risk. Check out the publisher's site where you'll find reviews, AARs, strategy tips, etc. The game had a successful run on Kickstarter and looks like they've put quite a bit of effort into it. Good luck, guys.
