Just purchased a JCD oak Piecepack set but don't look forward to downloading the 100+ game rules individually. Anyone know of a place where they can be downloaded "en masse"? Thanks in advance.

I don't think what you seek is available, but why don't you just download the games as you play them? Not every game is worth playing, so in the end you may not want to own all the games anyway...

The file would need a dedicated maintainer to re-compress it whenever a new game was written, or an old game was updated.

Any volunteers?

Hi Bruce,

I run Linux, so I used the 'wget' command to get the hundred or so games from Piecepack.org. This command should be available on most Linux and Unix systems; an alternative is the 'curl' command. Even if you run Windows, you should be able to get a version of one of these utilities for your system.

The Piecepack.org list hasn't been updated for a couple of years. There are also some newer games available at http://www.ludism.org/ppwiki/Games.

Yep... That's why I mostly visit the wiki nowadays... And you can read/post comments on the games too...

Maybe it's possible to get all the pdfs with an utility like Plucker ( http://www.plkr.org/ )
