We'd all play the same missions at the same time, and then compare our scores, objectives complete, strategies, and stories from the missions. Since people are busy, we'd keep in light - only a few missions a week. That way, anyone who could spare an hour a week could join in.

I've seen this work on other gaming websites, but it's only fun if there's enough people participating, at least three. And now it's a question of whether people still have the games and machines capable of running them.

So, who's interested? I'm not proposing we start this up right now, at least for a few weeks. I'm just gauging interest.
When I get back, that might be something I'd be interested in trying.

Problem is, my gaming machine is currently on mothballs. It will need a rebuild/ reformat to get capable of running 3-D games again.

The comp I'm typing this on is an old budget office machine... no vid or sound accelerators.

So: Once I return, I can spend a day or so getting the old comp up-and-running well enough to install the games again, and we can give it a shot. I still have all the CDs: X-Wing and Tie-Fighter 95; XWvTF and BoP; XWA.

I can't even begin to imagine how horribly rusty I will be at this point. And hopefully my flightsticks still actually work...

Still: Sounds exciting!
