Archive of Megagames

This list of past Megagames has been compiled for general interest and will be developed and extended. The archive at the Megagame Makers' site will be used as a major source. The database of planned games will itself be a source into the future. As a game is completed, it will stay on the database, implicitly transferring to the archive. If you would like me to add or change an event, then please email me. I have also provided a discussion page.
