Games have probably been played by humans from the first
moment we had any spare time. On this page you will find links to
information about the games we carry, which we hope will enrich
your game play.
- There were lots of broken links when I tried to find
places that talk about Abalone; the game must be played
frequently on college campuses since that was where most
of the transient sites were. But the above has a version
you can download and play (I think).
- This site has just about everything you need, from rules
to backgammon humor, along with loads of links and ways
to get practice playing on the Net.
Game of Go
- Starting with an introduction, "What Is Go?"
that is an excellent overview, with nice, understated
graphics, a brief, "How to Teach Go" page
(deceptively simple), complete with links to the American
Go Association's website, and more. Elsewhere is a page
Japanese Rules of Go.
- Usually played on a smaller, 9x9 board, and a good
introductory game for those just getting started playing
Go. Renju is the professional version of Gomoku.
- Mah Jongg
- This page has rules, and links to lots of other sites on
the subject. The top link on the list is Pung
Chow's and it's very pretty and informativ, with
images of many beautiful and amazing Mah Jongg sets.
a great overall page on Pente, including information
about championship games.
- Here is a Windows Shareware
version of Senet that you can download (there are other games here, too).
- And of course, you can buy these games from us at Astral
Castle (just choose the Classic, Family and Board
