One month and a load of news to tell.

Two Zinelettes have been released to the public.
  • The first is of Lloyd Krasner's Malta Convoy. a great little solo dice simulation of the hard won naval mission.
  • The second is of the Countermoves Generic Microgame Engine. This is the core rules to create just about any microgame you can think of. An example gameworld is included. Expect to see lots more CGME gameworlds and gamesets in future zines and zinelettes.

    The draft of our first issue of the Zine is now complete and getting its final workover. The public release is expected on 12/22/01. The issue is 34 pages packed full of games, articles and variants. Its amazing how fast this issue came about. Issue 2 is already getting material.

    I have added some new features here that might be useful. First off, look up right under the Countermoves logo, which comes to us by way of the creative hands of Mr Trevor Blake.

    Under this logo you will find a few links that point to some useful Countermove sections. he first is the NEWS section, which is what your reading, the second is the MESSAGE BASE which you is the conversational board, the third is the FILES section where you will find the parts and the whole of the zine and zinelettes, The fourth is the ARCHIVES of the news section and lastly is the CONTACT information, a place to email us.

    Next off is a way to COMMENT on the news items here. After each news item will be the name of the person who posted the item, a time stamp and then a way to COMMENT on it. This should be used for the items posted here , for further conversation about Countermoves head on over to the MESSAGE BASE.

    Give it a whirl and see how it flies.

    The first issue of Countermoves the Zine will most likely be put out in mid December 2001.

    We are well on our way to proofing the articles already sent in and are looking forward to getting more to inlcude in the zine. Head on over to the Message Board and join the fray.

    We have a pressing need for artists.

    Here will be the Countermoves Portal. I have gone and paid the fee to get rid of the ad banner up top, so that should be gone soon. I will work on formating the page to be more countermoves friendly over the next day or so.

    More as it happens.
