|(games)||play by electronic mail - A kind of game where the players use electronic mail
to communicate. This may be done via a human moderator or
an automatic mailing list exploder on some central machine
or it may be fully distributed with each player just
addressing his mail to all other players.|
This is a natural extension of "play by mail" games conducted via snail mail.
