I know I am NOT the only person who subscribes to amch
who plays or has played Trade Wars 2002 in the past.
I also know I am not the only gamer.
The letter below is authentic--if you got any concerns
about whether it's OK to click the link, drop me an
email. If you played Trade Wars, you will care, at
least a little bit. If you are a gamer, you may care,
at least a little bit. If you are not a gamer and
never played Trade Wars, you couldn't give a shit,
just ignore all this, OK? Go to Reservoir tonight and
rock out to Ruscha, free of charge, if you're 21 or
over and either know a member or have a membership.
That applies to anyone who cares to rock.
Oh, and the one question survey John describes leads
to an optional one page survey that goes pretty quick
if you answer "yes." I have no idea what happens if
you answer "no."

Dear Trade Wars fan,
As we approach the 20th anniversary of the original
release of Trade Wars (December, 1986), I am pleased
to announce that I have reached an agreement with
Sylien Entertainment to develop a long-overdue
graphical remake of this classic game. But before we
can proceed, we need your help. Because Trade Wars is
20 years old, I have lost touch with all but a small
percentage of its fanbase. Unless we can reach out to
this fanbase and prove that interest in Trade Wars
still exists, we will be unable to secure the funding
necessary to complete this project.
To accomplish this, we are running a small survey to
estimate the number of people who have played or
hosted Trade Wars over the years. By answering this
one-question survey, you will enable us to demonstrate
the great potential of a new Trade Wars project.
Nothing else will be required of you, but if you
choose, you may request to receive a monthly Trade
Wars newsletter with updates on our progress. And if
you really want to help out, you can complete an
optional, more extensive survey. We would love to
learn more about your experience with Trade Wars.
The survey is located at
For this effort to succeed, I need you to forward this
email to anyone who might be in contact with a past
Trade Wars player or game host. Most of them have been
away from the game for many years, and this is our
only hope of reaching them.
Thank you for helping us to update this classic game
for a new
generation of gamers!
