INDIVIDUAL GAME Web Resources
Individual board wargames have a tremendous presence on the web, and many of them have their own home-grown or assisted Play By Email solutions. If you are interested in any of these, follow the links below. Note that some games have their own "web-communities," such as Axis and Allies, ASL, and the like. In these cases, I'll post a representative page or two that has a plethora of links for you to explore from. My assumption is that if you have web access, and play one of the "community" games, you probably already know about the web links anyway. I think a much more valuable reason for a page like this is to display links to games you didn't know were supported on the web.
Naturally, the foremost resource for this sort of information is the Web Grognards webpage-- this page just presents some of the same material in a more distilled fashion. I created this page mostly as a adjunct resource for PBeM playing. Most resources listed here (if not all of them) have some content devoted to PBeM play.

1 Diplomacy is HUGELY represented on the web. Start from the list of links on the UK page and go from there-- there are just too many to list here and not have this table become repetitive.
2 This page represents a central clearing house of many more railroad game related pages, primarily catering to the community of gamers that play Mayfairs 18XX series, Avalon Hill's 1835 and Railroad Baron, as well as Winsome Games Railroad Series of games.
3 Eric maintains the Squad Leader mailing list, PBeM Game reports, etc. He also has a list of links to other SL sites out there on the web. Check his page first-- I do not add the other pages because I think his page is an adequate jumping off point for this subject.
4 ASL is an even MORE frenetic community than SL is. There are almost a dozen webpages devoted to ASL material that I have in my bookmarks section.. John Appel's page is a great place to start, as well as Patrik Manlig's. Both have substantial links pages devoted to ASL content.
