You are on the backup site for Any posts, moves, or other changes you make here will not be permanent, because the pages and database from the main site will be backed up here every midnight EST. Additionally, things may not be working right, because this site is also a testbed for newer system software. So, if you are not here to test, develop, or merely read this site, you may want to change .org to .com in the navigation bar and go to the main site.

This is a link to an external site for: Amazons


The game of Amazons is a strategic board game, invented by Walter Zamkauskas. In this game, each player has 4 queens (called amazons), which also can block squares by firing arrows. The last player that makes a move wins. Since the old link was broken, the link now goes to Michael Keller's page on the game, where he sells a computer program that plays this game.
