I know there are quite a few Trade Wars fans among us and I thought
some of them would be interested in this.
Begin forwarded message:
> Dear Trade Wars fan,
> As we approach the 20th anniversary of the original release of
> Trade Wars (December, 1986), I am pleased to announce that I have
> reached an agreement with Sylien Entertainment to develop a long-
> overdue graphical remake of this classic game. But before we can
> proceed, we need your help. Because Trade Wars is 20 years old, I
> have lost touch with all but a small percentage of its fanbase.
> Unless we can reach out to this fanbase and prove that interest in
> Trade Wars still exists, we will be unable to secure the funding
> necessary to complete this project.
> To accomplish this, we are running a small survey to estimate the
> number of people who have played or hosted Trade Wars over the
> years. By answering this one-question survey, you will enable us
> to demonstrate the great potential of a new Trade Wars project.
> Nothing else will be required of you, but if you choose, you may
> request to receive a monthly Trade Wars newsletter with updates on
> our progress. And if you really want to help out, you can complete
> an optional, more extensive survey. We would love to learn more
> about your experience with Trade Wars.
> The survey is located at http://www.sylien.com/survey.php
> For this effort to succeed, I need you to forward this email to
> anyone who might be in contact with a past Trade Wars player or
> game host. Most of them have been away from the game for many
> years, and this is our only hope of reaching them.
> Thank you for helping us to update this classic game for a new
> generation of gamers!

> NOTE: You are receiving this email because you are an EIS
> customer, a member of one of several active Trade Wars forums, or
> because it was forwarded to you by someone who believes you are
> interested in this game. You do not need to take any action to
> avoid receiving future emails.
