Super Duper Games
Add a New Comment

Super Duper Games (SDG) is a play-by-web gaming site, run from beautiful Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The most up-to-date information on what games are available, as well as links to their rules and authors, can be found on the Super Duper Games welcome page.

SDG is now essentially unmaintained. We are now sponsored by Looney Labs, which means the site itself will run indefinitely, but the wiki and forums had to be moved to free services. I do not have the time to manually migrate all of the wiki data, so here's the skeleton. The original data is available on my Google Drive.

The forums have been moved to Google Groups.

All are welcome to participate!

Other than pages for the individual games and players, the following information is available:

  • SDG How-To - New to SDG? This is a good place to start! It's formative right now, but still helpful.
  • SDG Tournament Centre - The tournament features are now online!
  • Credits - This is a list of attributions and thank yous.
  • Links - This page lists links to other play-by-web and play-by-email games. It also lists free boardgame sites and general gaming resources. Feel free to add your own links!
  • SDG Wishlist - This is a list of games that I and others have come across that could conceivably be implemented. Feel free to add some yourself!
  • SDG TODO - This is a read-only page listing the development queue as well as other miscellaneous site tasks.
  • Super Duper API - Want to try your hand at coding a game? Hopefully this page will help!
  • Povray Help
  • Leaderboard Information
  • Super Duper Source Code
  • The Rewrite
  • Super Duper Nomic
