In the early days of the online casino software companies there were command
line casinos, just like our email game servers. But as you can play for real
money in a casino it is important to choose a site that is regulated in your
area. For example, when you are living in Canada you can use a site like
online-casinos.ca. You will find the best casino games with really modern
Online casinos in Europe are very popular. Because of this there are a lot of
countries that regulated the casino sites to prevent taxless gambling and
gambling addictions. Even Holland is now working on regulating their online
gaming, for now Holland online casino sites are prohibited to promote or to play.
But this will change next year for sure. Beside Holland, other countries as
Germany and Portugal will follow quick.

If you are new to the server, you can read the tutorial (or send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with "help

If you have been here a while, you may find the summary of commands useful, to learn about the many things you can ask the server to do. (Or you can send mail to email@example.com with "help commands" as the subject.)
To play games via the PBeM Server, send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the command as the Subject:
line. Use the signup command to choose a PBeM userid and password.
It may be anything you wish provided it contains no spaces, quotes or colons. As a matter
of form the name should be based on your real name. Popular methods include using your
first name by itself, or prepending your first initial to your last name.
The password is a personal choice, but the key is to pick
something you can REMEMBER. If you forget your password, it is a real nuisance to
fix it. The only restriction on your choice is that no spaces, quotes, or colons be
included in the password. The password is designed to prevent accidentally moving for
someone else rather than acting as a tight security measure, so remember that whatever you
choose you are going to have to type EVERY TIME YOU MAKE A MOVE, so don't choose
anything which is going to be a problem.
The server will automatically maintain a history of your
games as well as a picture of the boards. Each time a player moves, a copy of the board
will be sent to each of the players in that game. If you want to peek at the status of
someone else's game or just check up on one of your own to make sure you haven't missed
some e-mail, use each game's 'show' command. The server will respond to queries to recall
the history and position of any of its boards.
As an additional social feature, the PBeM server will
forward mail to all the players of a given game so you can make comments (taunts) to your
opponents. You can also send non-game specific messages to any PBeM Server user via the message and broadcast commands or via the
PBeM Server mailing list (email@example.com)
Response time is usually very quick (not much more than
roundtrip email time), and you should always get a response (unless something goes wrong)
If the PBeM Server does not respond to a command, you can try the simple command
"help" to see if the system is down or not. If the PBeM Server responds to
"help" and you don't have a response from your other command still, something
has gone wrong. Try again or ask firstname.lastname@example.org
for help if problems persist.
An archive of some games is maintained at http://northumbria.tripod.com

help [ subject [ ... subject ] ]
signup userid password [ e-mail address(es) ]
Adds you to the PBeM server. You must sign up before you
are allowed to participate in any PBeM games. userid is any sequence of characters
not including colons, spaces, or quotes. The same goes for password. If you have
multiple E-Mail addresses or have a particular favorite account you wish all PBeM mail
sent to, specify it after your password. Otherwise, the PBeM server will assume the return
address of your signup request is where all PBeM mail should go.
change password userid current password new password
This allows you to change your PBeM password. You may wish
to do this periodically. The PBeM server uses the passwords for its own purposes. (It
stores them as clear text, so you probably do *not* want to use the same password as you
use for your login accounts!)
change address userid password [ e-mail address(es) ]
This allows you to change the PBeM servers mail address for
you. Any mail that the PBeM server send will normally go to this address. If no
address(es) is(are) specified, the PBeM server will assume the return address of the
request as the desired address.
delete userid password
When you have decided that you have wasted enough of your
life playing these silly games that can last for weeks, delete your user account as a
courtesy to the other players.
list [ game type 1 [ ... game type N ] ]
List the status of the game types specified. If no game
types are specified, a list of PBeM users will be displayed. For privacy reasons, only
their PBeM userid will be displayed.
message userid password toUserid1 [ ... toUseridN ]
If you wish to send a message to a PBeM user, but do not
have their eMail address, you may send it via the PBeM server.
broadcast userid password
If you wish to send a message to ALL PBeM users, use this.
Please limit use of broadcast to topics of potential interest to all players. You may want
to use the PBeM Server mailing list (email@example.com) as an alternate to the
broadcast command. Please include your pbmserv userid in your message so people know to
whom they should address their responses.
