In the Web Links section my entry got just approved. It is Google Spreadsheet for PBEM & PBF. The spreadsheet can be used to keep track of game state (except for map).

What makes it different, and significantly better, than all my previous creations is that this time entire state is manipulated by giving “commands” in cells of rows representing particular move. So there are no cells that have to be manually updated and once you update you lose whatever was there before. To undo few last moves is as simple as removing contents of few last rows!

An example use of the spreadsheet (with a full game) can be found here.

I hope you will find the sheet useful. And I’m eager to hear any improvement ideas or bug reports!

The Golden Camel UberBadge is a mystery. Nobody knows where it came from or how it got there.

Cool! I'll check it out later. In my current game using a spreadsheet, I was just thinking having commands would be nicer, but a challenge.
