Blind Galaxy List of Games

This is intended to be a complete list of games that are running or have run. Various details that I can think to place in here will be when I can find them.

Galaxy was written and maintained by Russell Wallace as a PBeM. Blind Galaxy is maintained by Howard Bampton, with contributions from a number of people.

Charts, number crunching and such

A chart plotting the number of players, galaxy size, number of systems and system density. Thanks to Bernhard Schmidt for the analysis (I've convereted it to PDF format) A newer version in JPG format which adds the galaxy's size and more games to the picture. An even newer version in JPG format which adds the galaxy's size and more games to the picture. (GIF files have patent issues).
