Tradewars was recently mentioned in a Firingsquad review of X: Beyond the Frontier. In particular, there’s a quote about tradewars in. If your lazy, (The lazyness should have osmoised itself into your very soul by now by just visiting here) here’s the quote in particular:
“Some of the best trading games were text only! The BBS classic “Trade Wars” was a turn-based, text-described game that has as many fans as the graphical Elite and Privateer games.”
I hope those Firingsquad guys read this page. if they don’t, then I guess I’ll have to make a trip to California to personally have my boot meet their backside.
