This article is from the Board games FAQ, by Alec Habig email@example.com with numerous contributions by others.
There are too many games of really wide variety discussed here to try
to answer FAQ's about specific games in this document. Some games
(notably Axis and Allies, Diplomacy, and Scrabble) have their own
regularly posted FAQ's. These FAQs can be found in the same places as
this FAQ (news.answers, rec.answers, and via ftp from rtfm.mit.edu).
Just spout out your questions, and they'll get answered!
